Pours into an imperial nonic a clear rich medium golden with almost a full finger of tight white head that leaves broken rings of lace as it settles.Leafy and citric hops dominate the nose with almost no malt base to speak of.Green leafy and citric hops dominate the palate with only mild sweetnes,it has a "green garden" flavor to it wich is a good thing.I'am not sure this a sessionable IPA with it's 6.5%ABV but it's a solid beer from Asheville.

Pint on tap at RiverLink in Asheville.
From Brewer: "Perfect Day ... goes down like a session style pale but packs the hop flavor of a big IPA; which it is. Perfect Day is 6.5% abv, so make no mistake it isn’t your typical “session” beer but it drinks like one. El Dorado, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops give Perfect Day flavors and aromas of citrus and fruits. There is also a distinct aroma and flavor of white grapes that come from the very unique Nelson Sauvin hops. We dry hopped Perfect Day with equal parts El Dorado and Citra for extra hoppy perfection. Last but not least a touch of Rye malt was used to add a subtle complexity and to compliment all of that hop flavor."

Clear amber with a bone-colored head. The aroma has good complexity and appeal, with
herbal/fruity hops over a reltively strong and sweet malt base.

The hops are more than just adequate for the style, but here is a substantial malt load that tames the hops and leaves the beer with a quite mild bitterness. Nonetheless, a very long lasting and hoppy aftertaste.

Medium body with crisp carbonation.

O: Not perfect but quite tasty, well above average quality. Easily recommended.

Had on-tap at Buffalo Nickel Asheville. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a clean medium amber color with a 1/2 inch beige head that retains well before falling to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Juicy burst of citrus hops with a sweet malt aroma to back.

T- The juiciness isn't as intense as in the aroma but it's still there with some moderate bitterness that lingers a bit.

M- Slightly sharp and dry with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- This is obviously heavy on the dry hopping since the aroma's so bright and inviting. The rest of the beer ain't bad either.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, caramel-copper coloring, with a filmy, sparse, white head. Nose of tropical fruit, caramel, peppery hops, and grapefruit highlights. Flavors of grapefruit forward, with a caramel backbone, lemon-lime highlights, pepper spice, and piney hops. Smooth and mid-bodied, with a resinous bitter aftertaste. The finish is slick and slightly dry. Very tasty beer!
