Very Good
Notes: Our "Session IPA" bursts open with aromatics of fresh citrus fruits, ripened melon and a distinctive floral bouquet. Weaved carefully under the hop bitterness lies a light, semi-sweet malt body, that finishes in a crisp N' clean fashion.

Copper colored with a fingernail of off white around the rim and covering most of the top. Light lacing. The aroma is difficult to detect, but I am getting some pine. I’m tasting some grassy hops with a lot of crackery malt. The mouth is light with some resinous texture.

Deep golden in color. Head is white and some lacing. Nose is heavy on the hops, but sadly not so much for the taste. Good session IPA, but would love to have more of the hop flavors.

First had at Michigan on Main Bar and Grill, Bavarian Inn, Frankenmuth, Michigan, on draft into 14-oz. tumbler. Although the brewery advertises a light, semi-sweet malt body under the hop bitterness, I couldn’t find it, except in the aroma. Effectively, the hops are the beer.

Really happy I stumbled onto this one. Really fills the bill as a great session beer. Very easy to drink, with none of the flavors overwhelming or becoming "too much" after a couple or few. Citrus taste is pleasant and doesn't have a that bite full IPA's usually carry and can taste the floral though out. Overall very drinkable and enjoyable beer. I've recently swapped out Founders All Day for it for the change.

Canned into Seidel, not sure what the date is.

L: Hazy gold with finger width off-white head, good retention and lacing.

S: Biscuity malts are overshadowed by the citrus and herbal hops.

T: More herbal taste than citrus, quite good though.

F: Medium body, good carbonation. Dry finish.

O: Good beer but meh from Perrin.

As "session" IPAs go to this is fair. A bit watered down and, at the same time, overkill on some of the flavor profiles. Enjoyed at the pool on a hot summer day, but there are better of this variety out there.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is bready malt with some tropical fruit hops.

The flavor is sweet slightly metallic biscuit malts with a little fruit hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, too much biscuit malt, not enough hop flavor.

I got a can of Perrin's No Problems IPA for $1.69 at The Lager Mill. It's nice to see more of these cans from Perrin, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a 12oz can into a IPA glass.

A- The can looks nice, it's got a nice clean design to it and it's just a little eye catching. It poured a pretty clear amber golden color that takes on more of a golden color when held to the light with two fingers worth of creamy slightly off white head that died down to a thick ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice patchy lacing behind. This is a very nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and they impart a nice mixture of fruity, floral and light green hops flavors with the the fruity hops sticking out the most and it imparts a berry and tropical fruit aroma and when it mixes with the sweetness it's almost like a fruity candy aroma. Up next comes the malts which impart a sweet malt aroma with a little bit of a pale malt aroma and they show up just enough. This beer has a good aroma, I like the hop profile.

T= The taste seems to be similar to the aroma, but lighter and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the hops still being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time it's a little lighter and while the fruitiness still sticks out the most the floral and green hops show up more than they did in the aroma. Up next comes a slightly watery flavor followed by some doughy yeast which leads into the malts which impart the same sweet malt and pale malt aspects that it did in the aroma. On the finish there's a lower amount of bitterness with a nice hoppy aftertaste. This is a nice tasting beer, butt I wish that the hop flavors and the bitterness were cranked up just a little bit.

M- Smooth, a little crisp, fairly clean, on the lighter side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a solid example of the style, it's not bad at all, but it doesn't have that extra hoppiness it needs to really it set it apart, but the hop profile was taking it in a good direction. This beer had a ok drinkability, one is enough for me, anymore than that and I think I would start to get bored with it. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance and aroma, they were both good and the highlights of this beer. What I liked the least about this beer was a lighter bitterness, I think IPA's should have a little more bitterness that this. I don't think I would buy this beer again, but I wouldn't turn one down. I can't say I highly recommend it, but if you want a solid IPA it's worth a try. All in all I liked this one, but I didn't love it and I think with just a little more work on the taste and drinkability and this could be a very nice beer. Nice job guys, this is a solid IPA.

all of the beers these guys have brought to colorado have been good. you know, well made, true to style, and very drinkable, but none of them have stood out to me in any way. none of them are unique or distinct or anything special as far as i am concerned. this is a tasty session ipa, nice and bright on the hops, but unlike many others, its not without some grain flavor. pale barley malt adds just a little sweetness in the middle and a bready complexion that the fruity hops take to well. its also no over hopped, so many of these get absurdly bitter because there is no malt to balance it out, but this one has the hops still flavorful but dialed back enough to be right in proportion. its clean and well carbonated, very easy down, and quite a fine summer slammer. that said, it doesnt live up to the label that promises ripe melon and bursting citrus, neither of those are here, this is as much a pale ale as it is an ipa. i never like when breweries tell you how great their beers are on the label. other than that, this is a solid but unremarkable brew.

Ratebeer tasting at Dick's. Pale yellow body with a thin white collar. Odd aromas of hops and cleaning solution. Equally weird flavor. This beer needs adjustments.

A - Pours a burnt orange brown with a layer of white head. A bit cloudy at first, but once the beer settles has decent clarity. Tiny jack frost lace layers the glass after each sip with the head almost resembling that of a nitro.

S - Citrus fruit, grapefruit, mango, some hop resin, piney, grass.

T - Hop profile follows the nose with layers of citrus hops, grapefruit stands out, dank finish that lingers bitter on the palate. Malts stand up just a bit to give this brew a nice balance.

O - Wow, great Session IPA with layers of complex flavor. This stands out to me and will challenge All day in this space. The only down fall is the price point is about $11 for a sixer and that really needs to come down to be competitive in this space IMO.

12 ounce can into pint glass; no can dating, but was just released last week. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, cracker, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, cracker, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, light cracker/bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and minimal astringent hop flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a damn nice session IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

I had this session IPA as part of a flight at Perrin Brewery. On the thinner side as expected, but actually has a nice bitter taste profile. Pleasantly surprised with this one.
