On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT after a bruising 9-hour drive from southern PA. A clear amber with a persistent off-white head. Initial impression was pine, grapefruit, and orange, with a dose of bready malts to balance things. Mouthfeel is easy to drink; carbonation is perfect. Finish is dry and a little bitter. A lot of flavor for a session beer.

Usually stronger ABV makes IPA more interesting and rich. This one is an exception. It is not serious, it not hazy enough. The scent is not distinctive. But the taste and feeling are super-real.

On tap at the Blackback Pub. Amber color and citrusy nose. Taste was very citrusy with lemon and grapefruit on the finish. Hard to distinguish individual flavors. Overall an enjoyable beer.

12 oz. can dated 3/17/18. Purchased at Yankee Liquor in Framingham, MA. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 3F white pillowy head. Decent retention. Leaves spotty lacing and a cap and ring. Beer is a clear light gold.

S: Largely grapefruit and orange with some melon. A little muted.

T: Grapefruit and orange, bready malts beginning to phone in at a month's age. Think I caught this at a very good time. A little bit of a piney finish.

F: Light bodied, medium carbonation. Hugely drinkable. Good construction for a session, good balance as well.

O: A bit better than Session 2, but I've always been a Mosaic guy. Put it right up there with Carton Boat.
