A: Poured from the growler into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is slightly hazed orangey-amber (more orangey) in color. Small off-white head on the pour.

S: Citrusy and earthy, piney hops with a touch of apricot. Real nice nose for a Session IPA.

T: Follows the nose, with citrusy hops dominating, on top of a crackery malt foundation. I'm really getting a lemony sense of the Citra hops, which impart a nice light, vibrant bitterness. There's also a bit of the "green" stuff too - i.e., pine and pine needles - particularly on the finish.

M: Light in heft (as expected for the style, with appropriate carbonation that's not too sharp or too soft.

O: This may be my new favorite for this style. Excellent beer.

This tastes like other half took the malt profile from boat beer and used kolsch yeast or a similar strain and changed up the hop profile. Nice clean citrus upfront, Piney Christmas tree in the middle and a wheaty German malt, slightly dank finish. Pretty good, not quite boat though.

I wouldn't call this a "session IPA". Sessions usually go light and bright, this is thick, malty, dank, and sticky with some bitterness on the back end. I'm not sure if I would "session" it, because of the bitterness, but still pretty good. Tastes like somebody's homebrew version of Focal Banger, that they didn't get quite perfectly

The beer offers lots of resinous pine, herbaceous, "green" matter, along with medium plus sweet bready malt that offers a creamy mouthfeel. The finish is medium dry.

Compared to Small Green, this was less bright in hop flavors and reasonably more malty.
