Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our one year anniversary IPA. This beer is the full strength IPA of the Session with Dr. Nandu which was the first beer ever brewed by the Aeronaut team (even before it was Aeronaut). The original beer was inspired by the Spanish Table beer Guineu Riner and Founders All Day IPA. The concept was to make a delightful, light, floral, fruity highly drinkable pale ale. In this beer we find a faint malt sweetness is paired with a distinct bitterness and rich tropical aromas of Mosaic hops.

Style: India Pale Ale
ABV: 6.3%
65.8 IBU

Love the art work on this can! 9/13/18 opened on 10/17/18.

Pours out to be a rather clear golden Amber color. White clumpy foam soon spreads out thin, solid ring and scattered foam remains.

A very hearty, grainy, citrus and peppery grapefruit, rich lupilin, style aroma from the Mosiac hops. A slightly sweet, Amber/buttery malted scent also brings light sweetness.

The overall flavor and mouthfeel really does come across as a hefty sided session IPA. 6.5 % abv. Is a heavy session, more complex than most session style ipa's as well, but it's light to medium bodied approach makes it very easy breezy.

Hearty, earthy and grainy hits me first, deep Mosiac hop effects, peppery citrus and mild juicy toned hops keeps the complexity high. The malt really plays well around the edges, sweet Amber, bready with a hit of honey is easily detected after the hops relax.

Very enjoyable and easy with decent complexity overall. O.k time to sip!

Poured from the can, dated 9/13/18.

Pours a good clear caramel color with some nice pine resin and tropical hop aromas. Minimal foam quickly fades to just a ring.
Good flavors of hops and caramel malt, a little grainy. A bit grassy, a bit piney, and a mix of floral fruity flavors.
Prominent bitterness and resinous hop character well balanced by the malt base, for a sticky bitter finish.

It strikes me as much more of a classic IPA than most of what you find on the shelf these days. Very nice, glad I picked it up and I'm glad they still make it like this!
