Slightly cloudy yellow gold pour with a large white head. Lemon and citrus aroma. Strong citrus/lemon-based bitter flavor. Can also taste a bit of straw, pine, grass and cracker.

A collaboration from Pizza Port and 3 Floyds Brewpub, two of my favorite breweries. However, I am not a big session sort of guy, so I didn't have high expectations of this beer. Might have even bought it more for the breweries than the actual quality of the beer.

Shredd Session poured a light, gentle straw color with a slight haze and a one finger head that fades to virtually no lacing on the glass as you drink.

The smell is not pungent, but features a slightly fruit-forward aroma with a dose of lime and some grassy notes. Very little hop distinction can be made out but there is some caramel sweetness.

The taste is very light bodied, but bitter with a mild bite from the hops, which are more present than in the aroma of the beer when poured. A minor fruity characteristic is overshadowed by the bitterness, leaving a lemon/line tinge that lingers

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little thin lacing.

S: Nice mix of tropical fruit and citrus, a bit grassy and piney, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Citrus, big white grapefruit and lemon, pine, grassy, tropical fruit, passion fruit and lychee, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly creamy.

O: Super tasty session IPA. I'd drink this all the time if it wasn't a one time collaboration.

The beer pours out a slightly hazy pale golden straw color, with 1 finger of white head------------ the aromas are of light tropical fruit, lime and pine(smells refreshing) --------------- the flavors follow the nose with pine, lime and lesser tropical fruit, the beer has a med mouthfeel with a dry light bitterness on the finish--------------- overall this beer was delicious light and refreshing but not lacking in flavor---

Poured straw with a slight bubbly head
No head retention

Nice aroma with some citrus and tropical fruits

Good hop presence on this but i wouldnt call this a session beer
Some citrus notes.nicely carbonated.

Light to medium mouthfeel with some lingering bitterness.

If i want a good hoppy session ipa, this would do, but at 5%abv. A little above a session beer.

Mostly clear, slightly sparkling gold with a large, fluffy white foam that settles in lumps and leaves some fuzzy lace.

Smell is orange, grapefruit, pine, cracker and biscuit. It reminds me a bite of White Rajah here.

Taste is cracker and a bitter but mild bite of pine before buttery biscuit with faint lemon marmalade comes in. A bit of black pepper and popcorn are also present, with a hint of strawberry.

The softly frothy medium to light body finishes chalk dry.

Picked this up from Berkeley Bowl last week. Drank it on Sunday. Pours a light almost straw yellow with ample clarity and a soft 1/3" white head. Awesome mash up art design wise between the two companies. Aroma was grassy hops, not super pungent but enjoyable to say the least. Some citrus rind kind of impression aroma wise.

Taste, nice light base, anytime FFF is involved I get worried its gonna be all gianted out to the extreme but not here. Lightly toasted pale and 2 row it seems with flaked oats and pilsner malt. I like that they have an easy canned on date to read (also, canned 4/4/18). Very light bodied and appropriate. The hop mixture is such a mix of classic, obscure and proprietary. You get the grapefruit from the Cascade, the nice aroma of Amarillo and Citra, and then some obscurity with Topaz and the getting more popular Vic Secret (probably where the bitter grassiness came from).

A neat beer, a definite upgrade over Ponto Session IPA.

16oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours an unfiltered golden orange body, one finger white head, plenty of retention, not much lacing. Smell is freshly squeezed grapefruit, orange peel, a bit of piny resin, light caramel sweetness. Flavour is classic west coast IPA, very clean with plenty of grapefruit, zest, citrus, pine, and a bit of caramel sweetness in the background; not too sweet. It doesn't have that grainy, bready type flavour that some session IPAs do- the hops are front and center here. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not thin or watery, tons of hoppy aromatics and bitterness through and through. It packs a lot of hops with just enough malt that it's balanced- not sure I would be able to tell that this is a 5% IPA versus a 7% IPA. Great stuff.

huge flaky bubbles on the pour, not much consistency. aroma is delicious and hoppy and the flavor is easy-going and round. easy to drink, and probably the best Pizza Port-affiliated brew i've had. i dont much like most of their stuff.... love the Three Floyds though!!
