This session IPA pours a deep golden color with an orange hue, huge dense white head and great clarity. The aroma is full of sweet fruit (apricot, peach, melon) and floral hop notes. There’s actually a decent amount of malt to the aroma for style with some doughy, bready malt and a little bit of toast. The malt translates into the flavor with a stronger biscuit-y note, but the hops take on a different accent. There is still some of the fruit (peach) as well as some lighter citrus (orange), but its very floral forward like a daisy garden. The bitterness is also more firm than most session IPAs, but its not overpowering. Despite the bitterness, the finish is dry but balanced with a fuller body than expected which keeps it from being hop water. It’s a tasty session IPA, but the strong floral notes keeps it from being excellent for me, YMMV.
