Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of under-ripe apricot, peach yogurt, soursop, jicama, and leafy greens with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, intriguing, medium-long finish with nuances of hints of banana cream, dried mango, and watermelon rind finish. A well-balanced, flavorful session IPA that over-delivers for the category.

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.
