A solid, basic, run of the mill session IPA...nothing jumps out...not tremendously bright or juicy...body fits the style and really this is a decent enough beer....citrus/floral like hopping....not real assertive but nice enough....caramel like malt....pretty balanced....soild..

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, good appearance, but all other aspects are average.

Never had a session IPA. This one coming from a reputed lager loving brewmaster. I poured into a small 60's era Schlitz tapper glass. Nice pour, head fell into a thick creamy top, nice lace on glass.

Nice light amber color, with a light, clean pine resin wiff. The smell is quite complex. Take it deep, smell, and it has a sweet, buttery, honey-like aroma. Really nice, and different. The hop is laid aside.

Taste..first impression, dry, flat bitterness, watery. The beer when first poured looks full of carbonation. It is the opposite, really flat. The first impression is still what I'm getting out of this session. I dont know if I like it, or not. Well this site says a session beer gets better the more you drink, so...2nd beer, dry, flat, bitter, less watery. Very dry on the back of the tongue, a little malt coming through.

Im starting to like this. Was the long lost Ballintines IPA of old like this. A easy drinking lower alcohol brew.

3rd beer..yeah I can see this being a long session of enjoyment. I can enjoy that with a S.N. Celebration Ale, but this goes does easier, and dangerously quicker. Very good. I'm a lager man first, but this is very nice.

Another sweet brew from Wisconsin.
