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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear amber color with vibrant carbonation rising up to the top. The head is three fingers high, and barely off-white in shade. The texture is frothy rather than creamy, and retention is decent considering how tall the head is. Nice webs of lacing are left behind.

S: This one takes on more of a grapefruity hop tone, rather than a piny/herbaceous/tropical one. The primary note is grapefruit zest/peel, with lesser hints of orange and pine. A touch of biscuity malt comes through - there seems to be something a bit peculiar about the malts, if not exactly offensive. Still, the citrus zest notes are pleasing.

T: It opens up - just like the nose indicated - with a healthy citrus peel character. Malts come through with some mild biscuity sweetness on the back end. After a few sips, the finish becomes somewhat herbaceous. It's not complex, but it could certainly pass for a 6% or even 6.5% pale ale at times.

M: While slightly sweeter than some of the session IPAs out there, it still has nice crispness and dryness. It's also full-bodied enough to feel substantial without being flabby or bloated. Carbonation is powerful, but gently lifts off of the palate.

O: At 5%, it isn't really a proper session ale, but it drinks every bit as easily as the other (slightly smaller) examples. Even if it isn't stunning or great, I wouldn't be averse to drinking multiple bottles of it. And after all, isn't that what session ales are all about?

Bottled 4/9/14. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.

a: Clear amber with a finger-and-a-half white head which receded to patchy surface film and spotty lacing.

s: Slight light fruit

t: Metallic tinge immediately is followed by a bready malt nicely balanced by hops which vary from vaguely citrusy to piney.

m: Light to medium, good body.

o: A curious session IPA which actually becomes more pleasant as it is consumed and warms. Once the hop flavors kick in it is more enjoyable. Ultimately one of the best of the new session IPAs.
