Session IPA with Jasmine
It tastes like purple. Purple Flintstones vitamins. Purple everything. If grandaddy purp were a beer, it would be this beer.

Pale ale with Sunny D
Lemon, lime, orange, and the salt crystal that I use for my pits. Rich palate. No B.O.

On the sour side of tart. Brewed with almonds, sugar, honey with orange peel; pineapple juice and lime juice added.
