Brilliant yellow color. Herbal aromas and flavors of herb muffin with honey, roasted tropical fruit, and buttered toasted baguette with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, subtle, long finish that shows notes of onion roll, rapini and carrot greens, and peppercorns finish. A bright and light session ale that delivers a wallop of hoppy goodness.

Session IPA's are lower alcohol, "sessionable" beers with a similar flavor profile and style as American style IPAs. They are deep gold to amber in color and usually fall below 5% in alcohol unlike their boozier counterparts, American style IPAs. They are characterized by floral and citrus hop aromas and a distinctive hop bitterness on the finish.
