Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw body.
The aroma is bright citrus and pine.
The taste is a nice mild lemon bitterness throughout.
The texture is light and crisp.
An enjoyable SIPA.

Can dated 10/01/15 into a tulip glass. The color was faint yellow and not overly appealing, with 1 inch head that left nice lacing. The highlight of the beer for me was the nose. Didn't feel the taste did the nose justice. Finished a bit thin and dry. The session IPA is more my wife's style than mine, so I'm hoping she likes it and finishes the rest of the sixer as I prefer some other sessions to this if that's what I'm in the mood for at the time.

A: Very light yellow, clean and clear. good white head 2 fingers.
S:Very floral. citrus forward. grassy finish. More aroma than expected
T:Light. Crisp. Grassy bitterness with come lemon peel. Definite grapefruit.
F: Tons of carbonation. Very crisp bite, clean. leaves a bitterness on the whole tounge.
O: I make sure to rate each beer for what it is. For a session it is pretty tasty. Very easy to drink. It could be balanced better though. Would recommend for summertime or out on the golf course.
