Slid up to the bar rather late at night after a bad flight to start a worse business trip. Asked for something refreshing and local to make me feel better. Jam Session filled the bill. Light, citrus but not biting. Hopped just enough to be noticed. NC breweries seem to like carbonation, so this had a tongue tingle, but it didn't get in the way. Very nice, would be great summer day on the porch beer.

This beer is overshadowed by hop drop n roll the No Da signature IPA
Jam Session is perfect for the summer as I sat in downtown Charlotte and tried my first one, I was overtaken by its easiness. Give it a try you will not be disappointed

Pours a clear pale amber producing 2 fingers of somewhat lasting, foamy, off-white head that leaves streaks & wisps of clumpy lacing & a beautiful surface cap. Effervesce streams up from the goblet stem almost until to the last sip. Aroma is subdued citrus with faint hints of grass & pine hops, overwritten by hints of caramel & spun sugar. Taste is thin grapefruit, tangerine & a little tropical fruit balanced with a semisweet caramel malt quantity that intensifies in sweetness as the brew warms. Finishes clean, dry & lightly bitter with some pine hints. Aftertaste is caramel & pine bitteness. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with nice carbonation, a little creamy, wet & juicy with some prickliness in the finish & some astringency in the aftertaste.
