Gold color with tiny bubbles. I was going for a light ipa but this is a little too light for me. A bit grassy with kind of an empty finish. Fine at a bbq if your not paying to much attention.

"Remarkably drinkable yet balanced and hoppy IPA. This session IPA is a perfect quaffer for all you light-weights"

Mini growler filled at the brewery this afternoon. Pours near clear, lighter golden straw in color. Fine off white head, frothy and staying nicely, before going to a thin film and leaving well developed and all the way to the top fields of sheeting.

Pungent and fresh smelling hopped up nose.

Crisp, fresh and aggressively hopped, with resin notes. Refreshing and quite easy drinking as advertised. Went great with BBQ chicken and some salad. More high quality and quite tasty pilot batch finery from CL
