Poured from a growler into a pint glass
A: Pure orange, crystal clear with a one-finger head
S: Citrus, pine and tropical fruit
T: Matches the nose; rather bitter
M: Light-medium bodied, has a nice up-front bite but not much of a finish
O: With all of the session IPAs hitting the market this isn't at the tip top of my list but is quite close, definitely recommended

Serving type: growler

Drinkability 18/20

Overall 91/100

Real nice flavor profile for a season... Rather big hop profile, which I didn't expect. Nice creamy feel. Sure it's a session, which I don't personally love. That's said, It has a rather big flavor profile. Smooth and hoppy

Final Verdict: A real nice session IPA worth seeking out. Fat Heads had been brewing beer out there mind lately! Why pass if you have the chance?

A: Pours a hazy yellow-amber with a white 2 finger head. There's a good bit carbonation. I don't know if the beer is supposed to have small floating specks... but I will assume it is. All in all, looks like an average IPA.

S: Smooth and sweet biscuits. Holds hints of pineapple and orange in the hop citrus.

T: Drinks like a pale ale. Super smooth and crisp with a great blend of sweet malt and mild hop citrus. There are also some notes of fresh pine. It finishes in a touch of bitterness. Absolutely awesome.

M: Awesome as well. Really crisp and smooth. It has a light-medium body and is balanced and well rounded. The alcohol is almost invisible.

O: I was really surprised by this beer. It drinks a lot like a pale ale and is super smooth and session-able. The flavor is mild for an IPA, but it still packs its own punch. Will definitely get again. Check this one out!
