Big grapefruity gorgeous nose, solid body, nice finish.
Of my 3 Session IPA attempts this has been by far the best. How can you beat a nice hoppy 3.5% beer?
UPDATE: This scored a 42 and won its category (Specialty 23) at the 2012 Las Vegas SNAFU Memorial & it ended up getting 2nd place in Best Of Show out of roughly 160 entries.
