Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with an off white head

S: Citrus hops and a little malt sweetness.

T: Citrus hops, orange with a little sour lemon and grapefruit, a touch of pine, and backed with just enough light malt. Clean finish.

M: Light body, light carbonation.

O: I'm not crazy about session IPAs in general and overall there's really nothing super special about this beer. That being said, it is quite drinkable and serves a purpose as a very sessionable beer.
