A host of hop aromas were immediately omnipresent upon introduction of this Session IPA from a 12-ounce can to a pint glass. Notes of pineapple mixed with other tropical and citrus fruit aromatics to create an enticing bouquet.

Golden in color with a medium white head and slight haze, the flavor mimicked the aroma in every respect. Citrus character was mostly grapefruit-like with some suggestions of orange peel and pine followed by a dry, almost puckering, finish.

Carbonation levels were moderate and alcohol was evident at a reduced rate -- as appropriate for the style.

The hop power packed into this Session IPA allows hop aficionados to enjoy the big smack of hops they crave and not have to concern themselves with the alcoholic load that higher-gravity IPAs deliver.
