3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Coasters, Elizabeth City, NC. Copper colored pour with a frothy off-white head. Citrus and light caramel aroma. Taste is mildly bitter with pine and wet grass mixed with grapefruit and orange. Bitterness lingers somewhat on the palate. A nicely done session IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Date on the bottom of the can reads: "Enjoy by 08/05/14."
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a whole lot of foamy lacing. Once the head died down, there were some valleys of a head.
The smell had some citrus and piney hops but it also carried a light "soapiness" to it, English malts?, could be...
The taste was basically the same without the soapy malts going on.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. There was a long bittersweet aftertaste and a sticky finish.
Overall, not a bad beer. To me, it seemed like an English session IPA, oh boy new style, God I hope I won’t be lynched for saying that.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can purchased at TC Craft Beer, Wine, and Spirits in New Hope, Minnesota. Canned 09/25/13. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a two inch foamy white head. The aroma is caramel malt along with a bit of resin floral hop and then some cardboard in the back. The taste is the cracker caramel malt up front, along with faint resin grass floral hop. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation and a mineral slight cardboard finish. Easy drinking, I am sure it is much brighter fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at 21A in SF. Nose is a moderate citrus with just a touch of toast on a bready malt nose. Pour us slightly hazy copper with a large white head. Taste is a biscuity malt with an orange and tangerine hop flavor. Pretty solid. Would crush.

very floral dominated nose with light citrus notes. Very filtered, clear dark gold, frothy head and retention. Up front hops hit, then mellows into maltiness. Decent beer. German hop taste in the body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a clear dark gold body under a one inch frothy off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. The nose is bright and crisp with floral hops and a bit of citrus over a light bready malt. The flavor is bright, with a nice level of crisp bitterness and a decently strong malt base. Pretty full beer for being a supposed Session IPA. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a decent lingering finish. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can into tulip glass a hazy amber with dissipating white head. Think lacing. Aroma was carmeled malts and a citrus background. Body was light. Taste was was the same but I got more of the citrus esp near and at the finish. The bitterness gains through the sip and grows in the finish. I enjoyed this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Hazy tan with some gold hues and 1 finger tight white head. Aroma is caramel malt with a sweet earthy hop background. The taste follows suit with a bitter hop finish. Light and sessionable but too thin on the palate. Decent but I wouldn't get this again. There's much better sessions out there.

When they say bitter they mean BITTER. It’s not bad, but I wouldn’t buy it agian. Needless to say, this was obviously my type of beer.
