Review:
So, the other night I  got home from work, put some People’s Court on the TV, as I often do, and then grabbed myself a beer. I sat down and poured this Eel River Emerald Triangle Session IPA. I am not sure if this is the People’s Court talking, but I really enjoyed it.  Let me get the not so great stuff out of the way first. The color is not ideal, kinda a piss yellow, but the beer had pretty good clarity and a nice head. The body and mouth feel were a bit thin but that is where my complaints end, and it is a session ale after all, so I can not really complain about a thin body.  The hop profile of this beer is fantastic, bursting with tropical and citrus notes; it tasted fresh and the flavor did not dissipate after a few sips.  I am at this moment looking forward to having another one, and watching another episode of People’s Court. I know that Eel River makes a full on (non session) IPA version if this beer and I would like to check it out because if this beer was a touch fuller on body, I would imagine it would be fantastic.

In a nutshell:
