Pours dark orange in the glass with a dense white head. Big round body and mouthfeel. Pine and candied orange peel are the flavors I get. Crisp, biting bitter finish. Drinks like a traditional IPA. Impressive flavor in a session beer.

nice slightly hazy golden orange.

nose is faint but pleasant. earthy dankness, light pine and subtle grassiness, a bit of citrus zest and some sweetness.

pleasantly surprised by the taste. bright citrus up front and really nice bubblegum sweetness, some bready malts and a touch of bitterness on the finish. mouthfeel is light, very nice level of carbonation. overall not a ton going on but thats not surprising given that its at 3.8%. also not surprising that lawsons have crafted this delicate session ale that completely nails it in terms of finding a great balance between flavor and crushability. if for some reason you wanted to drink an absolutely obscene amount, and drink a tasty beer while doing so... this is the one! unfortunately you can only get it 1 bottle at a time very infrequently - until the new brewery opens!!!

Not a session IPA fan but if I had to choose one to drink, this would win hands down. The amount of hop flavor that is contained in this beer is insane for a session. Grabbed this in VT while I was getting my three cases of Heady. So glad I did!

A-light amber color with a nice white head and good lacing

S-citrus, tropical fruit, pine, light malt

T-light bready malt base, pineapple, citrus, mango, pine, moderate bitter finish

F-light to medium body with moderate carbonation, clean and crisp

O-this is the best session IPA I have had to date, wish this were made year round
