Nice clear gold with head full of randomly sized bubbles. Head receded to a ring which scattered splotchy lace on the glass.

Mild aromas of citrous hit my schnozz.

Taste was a heavy duty (for a 4.7 beer) grapefruit hops punch in the palate.

More body here than you might think with just the right amount of carbonation.

I could drink this all day. Good stuff!

Luckily tonight I am in the mood for lower ABV alternatives since I don't usually get session IPA's.

A - A very bright shade of yellow with no tint of orange or brown. Head is also minimal with just a 1/4 inch that sits to a mild lace ring.
S - Has some hop bitterness herbal yet citrus like. Good malt balance with no offensive odors.
T - Mild twang of bitter hops, good malt balance and as expected a bit light on flavor.
M - Has a good body for a session IPA not watery but decent.

Overall it's good and I am glad I picked on up.

Served in a Second City glass.

Next from my box o' miscell--wait, the hell is that on the label? It's like Dan Halen mated with a pig or something. *shudder* Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, very light biscuit, and a vague melange of citrus fruits and their respective peels. The taste brings in more of the same, the grass's green character adding a touch of stringency to the proceedings that melds with the acidity of the fruit (so to speak) in occasionally strange ways. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a generally enjoyable "session IPA", though not something I'm gonna be reaching for all that often.

12 oz bottle. Date code says 353A14, which I assume means the 353rd day of 2014, so his isn't very old. Unfortunately it gushed all over my countertop and smelled like butter. Second bottle from same six pack had the same problem. I've had good flying dog beers so I'm assuming it's not systemic. I'll try it again at some point.
