Big thanks to Ba ClockworkOrange for gifting me with a bottle of this. The brew pours a perfectly clear light copper color with a finger of off-white head that fades leaving spots of lace sticking to the glass. Around the edges, the brew is more of a yellowish color. A swirl revives less than a finger back to the surface that is quick to fade.
The aroma is quite enjoyable with a fresh juicy hoppiness. Some tropical qualities mix with a floral aspect, more fruit and rinds. A little zesty, pulp-like, herbal and piney character also is thrown into the mix. The most faint amount of bready grain sits underneath but for the most part the aromatics are all about the hops.
The flavor of this brew is grassy to herbal with a solid focus on hop character without getting too bitter. Some floral notes, zest and bitter pulp to rind character somewhat like oranges and grapefruit. There is a bit of toasty bready grain character lying underneath the hop flavoring.
This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is light, refreshing and very easy drinking. Session IPA or just hop centric pale ale? Who knows why the focus on session, but it is pretty good. I wouldnt mind throwing back a few of these on a hot day. Thanks again for sharing Jason!
