Notes/Commercial Description:
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/14/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant flavors with good complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected for 5%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. Very bright hoppy aromas, but the taste wasn’t nearly as vibrant; but otherwise very smooth and nicely enjoyable.

The taste is of a basic, kinda-poor-man's session IPA. It has a solid dry hop flavor. Some grassy taste underneath. Some watermelon and grape fruitiness in the back. It's a light beer. Very carbonated. Very easy to drink.

Gold color, extremely bubbly throughout. It has a thick foamy head and a good deal of lacing. Completely clear. It has a very aromatic hoppy, weed-like scent.
