  • Pours clear with a brilliant, large bubbled white foam. Retention is more fleeting than most IPAs but nonetheless hangs out for a bit. No lacing.

    Aroma is nice. They didn't skimp on the dry hopping and/or late kettle hopping to get this kind of aroma on a "session" ipa. Citrus and sweet, balance malt backbone.

    Taste carries the sweet malt. Not cloying, slight caramel sweetness that carries throughout reaching it's zenith in the finish to help fight off the large amount of bitterness. Citrus hops are on the tongue throughout.

    Light body as expected from this self proclaimed sessionable beer. Spritzy but light carbonation. The hops give a sense of juiciness while drying.

    Nice beer. The bitterness takes away from the sessionability of this beer. Too bitter to keep going. I would say that is the only flaw in otherwise well rounded, thirst quenching beer. And, that is a big and, Shorts continues to put these beers out at ridiculous prices by today's standards. Enjoy!
