4.36/5 rDev +14.4%
Color similar to a darker whiskey. Cloudy haze with a medium frothy head.
Smells very hoppy with a hint of apples. It tastes amazing! Wow! The hoppy flavor is perfect and its lightly carbonated, like red bull. It leaves the moth feeling refreshed and cool. Defiantly one of my favorites!

3.4/5 rDev -10.8%
12oz bottle, no bottled on date. Extra'd by Kevin, thanks man. Poured into a Three Floyds pint glass today, 3/15/2014.
App- Hazy caramel-orange body. One finger white head, good retention, drops into a thin film at the center. Leaves thin sticky lacing along the glass.
Smell- Hops. A bit herbal. Some grapefruit and pine. Crackers, bread are present from the pale malts but not contributing a lot.
Flavour- Crackers, bread from the nose but not much malt sweetness at all. Hops are a bit more forward- grapefruit and pine are the more dominant flavours. Finish is fairly pine-forward but not terribly bitter. Not bad.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, kind of watery but does not appear to be "missing" anything. Drinkable, not bitter, no ABV heat at all. Finish is dry and piney. Very nice for an APA/session IPA.
Overall- Decent session IPA, nothing mindblowing. It is more like an APA rather than a session IPA like All Day in that this beer's malt presence does attempt to balance out the hoppiness.. it doesn't come close but it does attempt to do so whereas the big session IPAs out there are purposefully attempting to hide the malt backbone.

A - Pours a hazy copper with a one-finger foamy white head. Good amount of lacing.
S - Nice amounts of tropical fruit and a light amount of pine.
T - Big burst of tropical fruit upfront, mostly orange, peach, and grapefruit. Some sweet malts are also there. The finish has a piney earthy hop bitterness.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
O - This is a very flavorful session IPA. Would definitely drink again.
