Clear gold color. Aromas of sour cream, peach custard danish and coffee blossoms, succotash, and creamed spinach and glue with a supple, effervescent, bone-dry light-to-medium body and a brisk endive, dusty turnip, potting soil and loam, and nutshell finish. A dry and austere IPA with a notable vegetal streak.

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.
