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.

On draft at Draught 55, NYC.

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

The smell featured piney and tropical hop notes.

The taste offered resinous piney hops, with a secondary tropical note. There was a clean grainy malt in support.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a tasty and very quaffable IPA.
