Growler filled at Nathaniel Square Corner Store.

Pours a clear light amber, with a one inch head, and sheets of lacing down the glass.

Smells like pine resin, grapefruit, flowers, and other sweet fruity aromas.

This one has a pretty solid amount of grapefruit in the flavor, which is nice, along with some orange, a huge floral flavor, some pine resin, and a pleasant amount of bitterness that lingers for a decent while. There is not a whole lot of malt present, but the body seems to be heftier than a typical session IPA, so that must be where I'm seeing it. It definitely doesn't translate like most session IPAs- this isn't just simply hop water, it's a deliciously hoppy beer you can have a few of and feel fine.

This one has a medium body, but feel light while drinking it, keeping it very drinkable. There is a medium amount of carbonation, and a crisp, kicking mouthfeel.

I'm finally starting to find some session IPAs that float my boat. This one was great.

Growler from Riverhead Beverage, NY.

Bright pale amber with frothy white head.
Big Centennial candied orange nose.
Thread of light caramel and peach, then tangelo, flowers, and light white pine resin hops.
Orange zest end and lingering nectar.
Oily, smooth, some chew.

All of the flavor and oil, none of the IBUs - aroma to the max. Amazing effervescent citrus zest hops. Oil help boost what might be a thin body, so ends up both more substantial and juicier than All Day. Among the best and most on style Session IPAs.

Grand slam and a new favorite.
