Fantastic nose, tropical fruit and citrus, nicely hopped but somehow feels soft or watery in the mouth. Not in a bad way but unexpected. An interesting alternative to a standard IPA.

Great tropical hop favors but had the typical session IPA wateriness that is apparently inescapable with this style. Between taste and low abv this brew goes down like rave girl on x.

64 OZ. growler
Served in a snifter

A - It is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It is topped with three inches of white head with minimal lacing. My first thought is I thought you'd be bigger. I'm sure it's never heard that one before.

S - Surprisingly, it has some nice tropical fruit notes. Pineapple is noticeable. There is some pine as well reminding me do not eat the big white mint.

T - The taste continues with the tropical theme up front. The pine comes in to clean up the eyeballs at closing time.

M - Thin and watery like every damn "session ipa" I have tried. I heard this style had balls big enough to come in a dump truck, but so far it hasn't shown me shit. Opinions vary.

O - This is good, but Wade Garrett is the best. Based on the name alone I love it. I am not a fan of watery IPA's, but the tropical notes are refreshing. Hell, I even heard JC Penny is coming here because of this beer! I am watching Roadhouse while drinking this growler. Best night EVER!

I had high expectations given my love of other Columbus IPAs (Bodhi and Creeper) but this failed, not because it didn't deliver to some degree on the citrus flavors I like, but because it was too watery and didn't have enough flavor overall (even given that this is a session IPA). This was basically a watered down mediocre IPA. See Sunshine Daydream for a better citrus-forward session IPA.
