Very good Sessionable IPA. Packs a big flavor with a low abv. Pours a brilliant clear gold color with a medium size white head. Average head retention and small amounts of spotty lacing on the glass.

Nice tropical fruit aroma with a floral/aromatic aspect as well. I'm becoming a fan of Citra hops. Taste is more of the same with moderate to good bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp, rich enough where you don't hae to qualify it by saying "session beer". Rasonably bitter and goes down easily.

At 4.5% abv, you can enjoy a few of these. Very good!!!

A- pours a clear golden yellow color with a fresh white head and very nice lacing clinging to the glass
S-citrus and dank dusty citra hops with lemon grass
T- nice hop bite first with musty earthy lemon lime citra hops ...then sweet malts and bread equalize this very drinkable and tasty brew
M-hops up front with a lingering pine bitterness medium + carbonation
O- a full flavored session ipa/ipl this was IMO one of the best in this style of session ipa/ipl hops were up front and still there on the finish very very good

Poured into a tumbler pint at TapWerks in Oklahoma City.

Crystal clear gold with a frothy white head and loads of chunky lace. Gorgeous citra nose - lemon-lime, grapefruit, and white grape - with a palate that follows suit, hyperfocused on hop taste over bitterness. Malt bill is light but noticeable, a mildly creamy combo of caramel and white bread. Finishes spicy, crisp.

Love this beer - one of the only session IPAs that comes close to Founders All Day. This is on par, if not surpassing that high watermark. Excellent.
