On draft at The Ginger Man, NYC.

Poured a light brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The snell featured a juicy soft citrus and light doughiness.

The taste offered upfront citric and herbal hips with shots of pine and white pepper as well. A nice smooth malt rounded out the flavor.

The mouthfeel was typical of the session IPA with a lingering bitterness.

Overall a very tasty and über hoppy session.

Tasting another session beer. I am really beginning to like these beers, especially during the warmer weather.
This one did not disappoint me. It had a nice citrus grapefruit nose that I would expect from a hoppy beer. The taste demonstrated all the hops and dryness you get out of a big hoppy beer.
Only this one is low in alcohol.

Liking it very much

Drinking this from a pint glass- pours a clear golden orange with a two fingers of white head, doesn't retain well, and leaves a bit of lacing.

Smell is a little lackluster- faint citrus hop notes and a little grain.

Tastes great however. Lovely hop profile; some pineapple, some earthy bitterness, some herb, balanced against a nice mellow grain canvas.

Mouthfeel is just right- light body, modestly carbonated and a little resiny. Long finish. This is one of the better ones. Needs to be dry hopped and then it'd be perfect or damn close.

For a session IPA, this one has a pretty remarkable appearance. Blood orange, hazy, and two fingers of frothy white head. The last time I saw this much lace, I was rummaging through Kate Upton's lingerie drawer with Justin Verlander. I digress. The nose is a bouquet of tropical fruits, with a predominant whiff of orange peel. Taste follows suit delivering a wide array of grapefruit, lemon and mango notes. It's balanced on the back end by a grainy malt characteristic that allows the passion fruit to take center stage, without being overwhelming. This is surprisingly drinkable, and highly crushable, as the can suggests. It feels light-to-medium bodied, and were I drinking it blind, I wouldn't guess such a low ABV. A smidgen of prickliness on the tongue and I'm reminded that the session is almost (or far from) done. Seeing as how there's plenty of football left to watch, I think I'll have another. Two Roads' interpretation of the session IPA is definitely worth a try. Cheers.
