This is the Answer to the Summer IPA question. Simply delicious and drinkable ... in large quantities ... without losing the flavor that some producers have failed to master on IPA "lights" (for example, the All Day IPA). A prominent (but not overly dominant) orange flavor rounds out this masterpiece.

Nose is somewhat subdued....there's some tropical hop notes present...a little caramel malt sweetness. I know from other "session IPA's" that this style doesn't have to mean low on flavor...so I'm hoping for the best!

Flavor has some tropical notes on it that I would say are reminicent of what I'd generally expect in a pale ale. Maybe a little more than some...but not much. Then we have some mild caramel sweetness...a little earthiness there....and a note of cracker as well. Really no aftertaste lingering at all.

Honestly, calling it a "summer IPA" to me just seems a bit odd considering how much it actually seems like a pale ale to me. That said, it's pretty delicious and goes down well. So I enjoy drinking it, no question, I'm just iffy on the style.
