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."
