12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear golden body with a nice white head. No lacing, but a nice collar.

Smell - Very nice hop aroma. Citrus and tropical fruits. Light cracker malt.

Taste - Citrus hops. Lightly sweet pale malts. A little bit of cracker. Very low bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Crisp. Medium light. Well carbonated.

Overall - Delicious session. I hope this is around all the time.

Appearance: Pours clear from the bottle with a golden color verging on copper; an impressive head fills the glass and leaves enough lacing to please the eye

Smell: Citrus fruit with a touch of mango and a whiff of biscuity malt

Taste: Citrusy and juicy, up front, with the mango developing; just a bit of malt to balance with the finish bright and clean

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This would be a go-to session IPA for me if I was looking for one; delivers the flavor without the ABV

Poured into the Spiegelau from a bottle capped on 2/10/15. Very fresh. Clear and golden session-style brew with 3 fingers of foamy, white head. Clean aromas of lemon, mango, hint of pine, noticeable bitterness... GREAT nose for a session IPA. This is also where the train came off of the rails. Assuming ample dry-hopping must have led to the fantastic aromas, because there was very little in the way of those clean flavors on the palate. Some generic orange/citrus, decently balanced bitterness... kind of really bland to be honest. Expected thin mouthfeel for the style, clean aftertaste. Would have loved some more of that good hop flavor that I love in Juju and Headhunter... maybe I'm just not a fan of the session style. Guess I'd rather just have one regular IPA than 2-3 sessions...
