Notes / Commercial Description:
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Not bad, drinking at an airport before a flight so I don't think it's perfect my any means. Not bad tho.

When will I find a beer that sucks.
Picked this up in a variety pack in Quebec.
Light golden colour-see thru actually.
Definitely can smell the citrus-lemon is the most pungent. I would guess grapefruit next.
The pour had a slight head-this vanished fairly quickly.
Taste is very nice/warm. This would be a beer to have after mowing the lawn on a hot summer day. Who am I kidding-screw mowing the lawn-beer tasting is more important than showing off to the neighbours that you can cut grass.

---Guest review by my brother---
Appearance - poured into a nonic pint glass, the beer showed a light golden amber color and nice persistent head. Nice lacing while drinking.

Smell - Smells strongly of what I can only call 'weed smell.' Earthy smell with some grass and pine scents.

Taste - Starts with a wheat-like flavor that quickly changes to that 'weed hop' earthy taste finishing off pretty quickly with some flowery notes. Has a sort of 'echo' of the wheat flavor after the finish.

Mouthfeel - The beer is pretty light carbonated and medium-light bodied. Mouth feel is great, doesn't have that particular feeling hops can leave on your tongue that turns many off of IPAs.

Overall it's a very refreshing beer. Light and crisp this is a beer that could quell a summer thirst with a taste that doesn't bore after a bottle or two.

Pours a clear copperish orange, finger of loose head

Smell is cantaloupe, mango, tangerine, earthy rind, bready malt, melon, a bit of a deeper pine note

Taste is pretty big for a session IPA, orange, mango, pineapple, a ton of melon, cantaloupe and honeydew are the first that come to mind, a bit of sweet bready malt, a nice piney bitterness finishes it off

Mouthfeel is medium light, dry and well carbonated

Well this is the best of the Session IPAs I have had, grabbed a single but will certainly go back for a 6er of this.

If you are familiar with Toppling Goliath X Hops series, this tastes almost exactly like the orange to me, just a tad weaker but it is also lighter on the alcohol.

Very impressed

looks golden. bright yellow. nice carb. feathery head. lingers around a while.
nose of bready hoppyness. very fresh. hops are very bright.
taste is a perfect bitter and zesty hop sharpness.
very very drinkable, I'd say its one of the best session IPA I've had
as far as mouthfeel and overall session ability. isn't resinous but
still has a great hoppy flavour, without the dry bitter mouthfeel.
refreshing and goes down very easy. was expecting this to be a bit more
intense on the hop side of things having has a few other IPA offerings from
goose island, I had expected it to be darker amber colour and a lot more hops.
but its a pleasant surprise in a session version of the more heavy duty IPA's they offer.
I hope this goes into full production as I enjoy it a great deal more. not to say that the other
IPA I've had from this brewer has been bad in any way, because its been amazing.
just not as good for a session beer as this one is.

overall this is something I would buy again defiantly, hopefully this limited run of cans
doesn't sell out quickly, I must stockpile more of this. *off to beer store*

L: Good, long lasting head. Clear golden color.

S: AMAZING! Ligh malt, fresh green hop with a nice strong and sweet grapefruit aroma.

T: Very light and refreshing. Fortunatly, the grapefruit does'nt taste as strong as it smells. Its a little sugary, but the non-fermentables dont take the stage from the subtle aroma of the hop. There is also a nice mango taste to round everything up.

F: Good carbonation that goes well with the citrus taste. Leaves a nice bitternes, but no dry mouth.

Overall: Definitely my Go-To IPA this summer. It could be a very good introduction for anyone who would like to introducte their palate to IPA's.
