Description 

You know those epic days that start with an idea, turn into a dare and end with a great story to tell? This is the beer for those days. Crisp and refreshing like any respectable session ale, but a bit more hop-forward and flavorful than some. Perfect for going with the flow.

Named one of the Top New Brews of 2013 by Modern Brewery Age! “Layers of flavor, it’s fruity then it dries out then there is more fruit, and it leaves you with a nice taste,” said craft beer retailer Renzo Kian-Kubota. “I think it might be the easiest beer to drink that I’ve ever had.”

Today’s beer pours forth a medium straw color with a white puffy head that dangled in the glass throughout sampling. Lazy floral and malt notes were detected in the aroma, backed up by a light grassiness. It punched through on the tasting side with a light, restrained bitterness level, supported by a decent amount of sweet malt character, bordering on dough-like.  

It finished quick and clean, leaving only a mild hop presence in its wake. Overall, this seems like a solid Session IPA, very simple in direction and a well-executed set of “IPA training wheels."
