4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Served from a growler counter-pressure filled the day prior into Sam pint glass.

A: Dark caramel with a thin head that built slowly and dissipated quickly.

S: Sweet roasted malt and a lightly floral hop background.

T: Roasted malt and a light bitterness.

M: Thin body with low carbonation.

O: An exceptionally well-balanced and easy-drinking brew. It has enough complexity in the flavor profile to keep someone sipping and pondering, yet balanced enough to make for a great session.

Can stamped 08/18/2016

Pours a clear golden orange with a small, dense head that drops to a thick nitro-like layer. Smells hoppy, but there's a berry/grape-like element that is interesting. Oily, floral, peachy. Flavor is passion fruit, pine, berries, and flowers with a very nice nutty grain finish. Light bodied with soft carbonation and dry. Moderate grassy bitterness. This one started growing on me after the first can - definitely the best batch I've tasted as I'm usually not too impressed with Trophy Wife. Good pale ale.

Very clear and gold/orange beer with a white head that leaves random spots of lacing. It has a floral, caramel and fruity aroma with some sweetness. The taste is amazingly sweet for a session beer with citrus and floral notes. There is a nice mildly bitter finish that balances it all out. This is a quite tasty session IPA.

I think the packaging on this may have listed it as a Session IPA, although I think this could best be described as an American Pale Ale which is where this website has it categorized anyways. Pours a light copper or dark orange with medium carbonation. Aroma is of Citrusy/dank hops and flavor is much of the same. Not a ton of malt presence but enough to keep this from being pure hop juice. The Citra hops are pretty obvious in a mostly good way. Overall pretty enjoyable and easy drinking.

Smells like mango, peach, blueberry, nectarine, pineapple, papaya, guava, passionfruit, apricot, orange citrus, grapefruit, toasty caramelized bready malts, tea, with spicy dank earthy herbal grass and floral resinous pine. Tastes like toasty caramelized bready malts, mango, peach, blueberry, nectarine, pineapple, papaya, guava, passionfruit, apricot, orange citrus, grapefruit, some tea, with spicy dank earthy herbal grass and bitter floral resinous pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate low carbonation. Overall a nice session ale.

Appearance: Arrives clear and a brilliant copper: a nice head leaves some webs of lacing

Smell: Fruity esters and caramel malt; hints of earth, grass and pine

Taste: Juicy Fruit and caramel, with earthy and piney hop flavors building; the finish is balanced but a bit thin

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Very English in many ways; if you told me this was an ESB I would buy into it
