From growler to pint glass

A: Straw-yellow, opaque, with a marshmallow-y head that almost never fully recedes. Lacing all over the place.

S: Hop-forward with distinct grass and citrus notes. Crackery backdrop as a slight touch of honey rounds the bouquet.

T: Cracker-y, slightly earthy notes hit right up front along with citrus rind and lemon pepper, fairly pronounced for the style. Malty sweetness gently rolls in, honey-like with a subtle note of vanilla. The rind-y aspects from the hops carry throughout the sip, finishing dry and slightly bitter.

M: Light on the palate, as expected, but the brew has a pronounced oily slickness as you throw it back.

A refreshing brew hovering between a pale and an IPA. Lots of flavor for such low ABV, this is satisfying easy to quaff. Glad I brought home a growler of this because with Citra on tap there wasn't a lot of room to drink anything else. (899 characters)

On Tap at the Brewery – 11/15/2014
Taster from flight

A: Light goldenrod hue with a touch of cloudiness across the body. Smallish lip of ivory foam settles up top before slipping out to a thin crown. Light dots of stick but not much lace produced from this one.

S: Smells a bit grainy at first like wheat malt would or maybe even a little Pilsner in use here followed by some intensely tropical hops. I get exotic florals, gooseberry, and ripe melon with a skunky herbal cat likeness. Crazy interesting hops. Has me thinking Mosaics here maybe. Either way smelling real nice.

T: Tropical citrus with musky melon, gooseberry, and subtle dank weed. Super light and dry as to be expected with just a hint of malty cracker to it. The beer has a rather high level of bitterness hitting the palate for such a small session. Rather impressive how much hop flavor they packed into this one. Definitely some newer world or NZ type hops. All catty and tropic. Me likey.

M: Very light and super dry with a high level of peppery bitterness. Finishes out dry and crisp with some noticeable hoppy linger.

D: Gravity Check is a solid Sessions IPA with some real funky new hops at play. Kern did a nice job with this one. Lots of flavor packed into a crushable sesh. (1,287 characters)
