Notes/Commercial Description:
You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Best by date of 11/20/14.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head that settle into a thin patchy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus fruit and grass. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, pineapple, and melon. Floral and earthy hops with some hints of grass and pine. Soft malt hints of grains, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a light but very tasty mix of citrus and earthy hops esters. Good upfront presence of citrus hops with juicy notes of grapefruit, lemon, orange, mango, pineapple, tangerine, and melon. Good floral and earthy hop notes with some grass and spicy pine. Light backing presence of pale malt with notes of biscuit, cracker, grains, and yeast. A good hoppy session ale taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Juicy and slightly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty nice take on a session ale that is more like an IPA than APA. Good zesty hop presence.

This is a great summer session beer. Very light, easy to drink, and really refreshing on a hot summer day. Don't expect a ton of flavor or hops here, but do expect a really mellow beer that goes down easy. This is a nice change of pace, and I'd prefer this over a wheat beer any day.
