Served at P.J. Whelihans in its own branded 30th anniversary glass. Pours a medium copper color with a white head and lace. Aroma of grapefruit, toffee and flowery lavender. In the taste, solid bitterness and loads of pine. Nice caramel taste. Leans towards the bitter edge. Medium bodied well carbonated. Overall, delicious ipa.

Bottom line: a nice, medium-hopped beer that advertises itself as a Session IPA, with some nice malt, hop flavors that are on the lighter side. Also very affordable

More brown in color than a typical IPA.

Very session-able at 5.0 ABV.

Flavors are on the lighter side, with less citrus aromas or flavor notes than I would typically like from an IPA. It's probably right for a beer that clocks in at less ABV than even Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Sold at PJ Whelihan owned restaurants, but brewed by Victory, these are always on tap and often for $3 a pint - A steal at that price compared to many other $6 pints that aren't as good
