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.

Bottled April 10th, 2014

Appearance: Pours with a transparent clean orange color. About a finger of crisp white bubbly head on the pour which settled in to a thin layer across the top while drinking. Good amount of active carbonation, about right for the style.

Smell: Orange peel and saturated citrus lead on the nose. Light lemony citrus with a heavy syrupy caramelized malt backbone. Pine, resin, and grapefruit round this one out.

Taste: An undistinguished front of light fruits greets the drinker. Slight buttery malt body but I am really surprised how uneventful this is after the aroma. I expected for heavier saturated citrus tones but mainly a watery undistinguished session.

Mouthfeel: Some citrus notes on the front with a primarily watery body. Slight lingering malt on the finish.

Overall: This one gets left in the dust by many of the high quality session IPAs being made today. Uninspired, uneventful, undistinguished.

On tap in a 16 oz. serving. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, citrus. Taste is bursting with grapefruit, good bitterness, touch of malts at the finish, very easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good beer.

Pours a clear gold color with a 1 finger white foamy head that faded very slowly and left great lacing with rings as it went down. Smells of lemon zest, citrus hops, grapefruit, coriander, pine cone, mint, grains, hay, fruit like apple skin and candy. Nose is sweet with a lot of fruity notes, almost like a cross between an IPA and a Belgian. Tastes of citrus hops, lemon, red grapefruit, orange peel, coriander, pine cone, caramel, grains, hay, butter, fruity candy like Skittles or gummy bears, graham cracker and mild spices. Citrus is the strongest flavor, with nice malt accents and some fruity sweetness that is all tame and spot on for a session IPA. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with very mellow carbonation, a medium body and a finish on the dry side with grainy and slightly bitter citrus notes. Overall a good beer that was refreshing, easy to drink and a definite session beer; I had 3 tonight and they went down pretty quickly and kept my attention with the solid flavor. Not a hop bomb and on the basic side, but a good, quenching session IPA.

Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World, April, 2014. Poured into a pint at fridge temp.

appearance: light amber with a one finger offwhite head, nice lacing.

smell: white grapefruit predominates, detect some eucalyptus as well.

taste: tastes like it smells.

mouthfeel: solid, slightly spritzy.

overall: a decent beer but not noteworthy.
