Poured on tap at Pizza Luce St. Paul

A- Light Golden with minimal head.

S- Overwhelming citrus hops hit the nose with hints of tropical fruit. First sip was highly anticipated as I have sold numerous 6 packs of these in the LQ I work.

T- Crisp with citrus flavor, very hoppy yet very light. I had to pace myself given the taste.

M- Very dry not puckered out bitter but dry which I like to experience on a new level when not drinking something as tanic as the wines I usually enjoy.

O- After the one pint, I wanted more of it. I assume after the second I would want more as well. Truly a session IPA which I must confess this is the first of the kind I have tried coined as such but very appropriate. It really presented itself as a double/imperial IPA without the big syrupy mouthfeel I perceive in many. Cheers.

All Day IPA pours a clear, light bronze color with a moderate, fizzy head and a fair amount of bubbles in the glass. The foam on top dissipates quickly leaving behind a few spots and lines of lace.

The aroma is loaded with orange and tangerine citrus. A little lemon grass and a touch of sweet caramel malt is also present.

Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is watery with firm carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of orange and lemon citrus before grassy bitterness takes over. Bready cereal malt tries to balance out the hop bitterness, but it comes up short. It finishes dry with lingering orange citrus when gone.

It's nice to have a very hoppy beer that's not 8%+ abv. This beer does tend to lean on the bitter side, but it has tons of hop flavor if that's what you're after.

A: Clear, golden orange liquid with lots of big rising bubbles. Head is of white and modest. Settles to a skim.

S: Strong citrus hop aroma. It comes across as mildly sweet and bitter.

T: Very bitter IPA. Just because the alcohol is a bit lower doesn't mean hops were sacrificed as well (unless you count added hops to the boil, then yes, many hops were sacrificed).

M: Beer has a slight sticky film that contains some bitter hop oils. Carbonation is strong.

O: A very good IPA. I can see myself enjoying this one all day. I hope to revisit it again this summer. I calls for sunshine and a back deck.
