Dark orange pour. Nice, medium-strength hop aroma with mild nodes of citrus and pine, solidly balanced out by little bready nodes of malt. Not very complicated--it's actually about as boilerplate as an IPA aroma can get--but it's solid and nicely balanced.

Tastes almost exactly like it smells: medium-stength hop profile with wisps of pine and citrus, balanced out pretty well.

This is a solid session IPA, but I have to take it down a couple notches because absolutely nothing stands out. Like, there are other light, sessionable IPAs, and the best ones have *something* about them that makes them unique: Sierra Nevada has that tang and earthy finish, Rogue's Brutal Bitter's malt profile is unorthodoxically chocolatey, etc. This does what it sets out to do, but it lacks any extra anything to set it apart.

On tap at Flat12 Memorial Day weekend. Session IPA.

Pours moderately dark orange with a decent white head and some lacing down the glass.

Light citrus hops and just a touch of malt sweetness in the aroma.

Tastes like the 4C's had a lot of play in this one. Malt bill is restrained and bitterness is low, good marks for a session IPA.

Fairly light mouthfeel with crisp carbonation.

Nothing overly special, but does exactly what a session IPA should. I could drink this one all day.

They call this a session IPA. This beer pours a light bodied dark amber in color with a light lacing around the glass. The nose is a nice in between of hops and malt. It smells like a mix of centennial and cascade hops with a formidable malt bill. The flavors are similar. Plenty of malt, piny and somewhat oniony resinous hops. It drinks medium in body and pretty dry. It has nice flavor for.a beer of this size. It also really drinkable because of it. I liked this one.
