Poured from a growler into an IPA glass. Light orange in color with a medium head. There was nothing special about the smell neither good or bad. I enjoyed the taste. Slightly citrusy with a mild bitter finish. Although it might just miss the session beer classification, I found it very enjoyable for an IPA not over the top in terms of ABV.

On tap at Church Key for National IPA Day.

A nice IPA. A bit tart compared to others I have had. Overall an average beer.

L: poured with 2 fingers of head. Cloudy copper beer with a sticky lacey body that stuck to the glass.
S: the smell of orange and grapefruit were overpowered by cat poo. Honest to jeebus crabst, I smelled cat poo.
T: a decently bitter start follows quickly with a sweet hawaiian roll flavor and finishes with an orange peel bitterness
F: more body than their IPA, this session had a good mouthful and a crisp finish that kept me drinking.
O: very odd. It kept reminding me of cat crap, but I kept drinking happily. Is this what my dog feels like? I understand your midnight raids into the litter box now, it's a sweet bitter old orange. Good dog.

Poured a cloudy orange body with two finger head and lace and has textbook citric/floral hop aroma with touches of grapefruit and malty sweetness. Beautiful session IPA that is easy to drink (I crushed mine real quick without realizing it) that gives off classic citric and floral, plus grapefruit, notes along with a sturdy caramel malt backbone for a little oomph in the body and the right balance between hops and sweetness.
