Notes: A session IPA brewed with mandaquats, papaya, and milk sugar. This beer is bursting with tropical fruit flavor and has a heavy hop bill of Citra, Azacca, Rakau, Amarillo, and Centennial hops. Clocking in at just 4.8% ABV, this session IPA is light, refreshing, and sherbert-esque that's perfect for any patio.

On tap at the brewery
A-a thin finger of white head quickly recedes atop a juicy cloudy looking brew. Murky yellow.
S-juicy hops-guava, grapefruit, orange. Oaty malts
T-got that taste too. Dank. Tropical. Citrus.
M-got that nice creamy oat mouthfeel.
O-impressive session ipa. I’d be happy to crush this hard and often. First time stopping here. It won’t be my last.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a white head. Smell was citrus tang an tropical dankness. Taste had tangelo and tropical notes with sweet malts in the finish. Mouth feel very citrusy and sweet , a great session IPA full flavored sweet and juicy.

Poured from crowler can into glass. Filled on 4/27(2018).
Murky, pale gold colored body. Each pour brings a short lived white, fizzy head which quickly dissipates to bubble fed ring and a minimal island. A very few spots of lacing.
This crowler version of 'Juice Session' is brewed with mandaquats and papaya. Mandaquat is an agricultural cross between a Mandarin orange and a kumquat (sweet and tart combines for a citrusy tang explosion on the tongue).
Aroma has lots of tropical and citrus components. Can pick out the Mandarin orange/kumquat component. Also has the more subtle papaya.
Taste is more smooth and expressive rather than something that explodes and is bright/shiny. Has a very expressive tropical fruit flavor profile for a lower ABV beer. Lots of taste ends up in the nose. Flavors include the citrus/floral hops along with the papaya and mandaquat (the Mandarin orange appears very late, but is also tempered by the kumquat).
Medium mouth feel. Adequate carbonation.
For a lower ABV beer, this is very refreshing, and is quite complex with flavors (although they mix together for a total tropical, with just a hint of citrus, experience).
