Growler to the dome. Poured into SN imperial pint.

A: Pours a clear pale golden with an impressively huge, thick, greasy, and dense off-white head that slowly faded into a very thick and rocky film that lasted the whole glass through. Sticky sheets of airy lace were left down the glass.
S: Citrus dominates with hints of sweet tangerine and orange zest, but I get a fair amount of mango and pineapple mixed in as well. Bready pale malt pokes through the scent. Light overall, but what’s there is great.
T: Light and easy flavors of mild citrus juice and watery pale malt. Not much going on except a few citrus hints and floral hoppy notes. The finish is more sweet than bitter, with a touch of the mango and pineapple from the nose, and the aftertaste is quick, light, and bready, with a linger kiss of grapefruit pith.
M: Despite the head, carbonation is rather low, with a light body and light and quaffable mouthfeel. Drinks well.
O: Decent flavor profile, extremely light scent and flavor, and light and easy to drink. Definitely a session ipa, but I wish it had just a touch more. This was very easy to drink over the course of an evening, and I would do so again, but overall this isn’t anything spectacular.

Session feel, not enough hops for a self proclaimed "hoppy session". Goes to malt flavor too fast. Nice Carbonation and head. Golden straw color.

This pours a clear gold-tan color. Not much aroma. There’s a piney bittering on the palate that quickly dissipates. Thin body, light hop character, not bad for a session but not my favorite offering at RR.
