Draft only release. Sample bottle from the brewery.

Pours bright pale golden with a creamy white lace. Great nose. Quite pungent with citrus rinds, herbal, floral, and onion notes. Crisp and dry upfront. Light biscuity malt base. Hops are biting with more citrus, herbal, and a fresh, rindy finish. Slightly oily and resiny on the palate, with a light and watery mouthfeel that's a bit flat. Dries out with a chalky, aspirin-like, ashy, semi-astringent, bitter linger.

It's good, but I'd like to see a bit more malt balance and carbonation. As it stands it's a bit like hop water. I also found the text on the label amusing: "... that really isn't an IPA at all." So why call it one? (Answer: the style is currently trending.)

Hop bill: Warrior, Chinook, Cascade. 4% ABV. 65 IBU.

12 oz can, with "best by" dating on the bottom

Pretty typical lok to this one, amber, off whiteand lasting head, respectable spots and strands of lacing left on the glass.

Citric sniff

Easy drinking and citric session IPA. Notes of the usual suspects, grapefruit and oranges. Nicely done. Nice summer kinda brew

L: Pours brilliant gold producing a 3” sticky off-white foam stand that takes 4 minutes to recede to a thick, lacy ½” film. S: Fruit, citrus, herb, grass and light bread aromas rise from the glass. T: Fruit, melon, tropical fruit, citrus and bread crumbs mingle with a balancing hop bitterness. F: Medium to medium light body and medium high carbonation. O: A very full flavored and easy to drink session beer.

Undated 12 oz can served in lager glass in July 2017.

Pour is medium amber; Clear with an off-white head that has very limited retention.

Aroma: floral and fruity hop notes with honey and a faint touch of pine.

Flavor: herbal and citrus notes with subtle pine, reflecting multiple hop varieties. Mild bitterness. Detectable malt contribution but certainly hop forward.

Feel - medium body and lively carbonation; dry.

Pours a cloudy yellow with nice foam and good lacing. Smell is great, floral notes, citrus, and hops abound. Taste is very good, full on IPA, you get tons of floral and citrus with a little dryness that just all works so well. This is an outstanding beer for all day consumption and full flavor without the heavy ABV. Excellent!!!

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Best by 01/02/2017 printed on the bottom of the can. The nose is extremely aromatic and filled with hops. The taste is extremely light bodied with a crisp hoppy finish, very drinkable.

This might be my new favorite session IPA. It's bright, floral, and juicy in the aroma. The flavor picks up more classic grapefruit, a little apricot and berry, a touch of pine, and then the finish is balanced (not too thin or dry), feeling more like a 5 or 6% beer. This is a tasty, easy drinking beer that covers a lot of ground in terms of hops flavor. Try one.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is clean and grainy.
The taste is bold citrus bitterness all the way through.
The texture is crisp.
It's enjoyable.

BBD of 7/22/16

Pours an effervescent amber with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Great lacing & fairly average head retention

S: Mango & grapefruit, plenty of it

T: Follows the nose, some dryness and pine up front Tangerine comes through as this warms, along with a dry breadyness, plus a little lemongrass. Finishes with a lovely citrus flourish, some grassy notes & a little dryness

MF: Light/medium body, fairly firm carbonation, nice balance

This is one of the better examples of a session IPA, highly drinkable

A decent session IPA, but once again, another session IPA that just seems a touch watery. Citrus is detected and the hops and such balance well, but again the balance and body seem to lack enough flavor to satisfy.
