3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mix of burnt orange, copper and glowing amber. Understandably light bodied, being a Session Ale. Nice soapy bubbles in the head. Nice bouquet of aromas: sweet bready malts, biscuit, both fruit forward and floral hops. Apple juice, peach, under ripe tangerine. Snappy, malt forward flavor. Some nice, juicy hops sprinkled in. Lots of good, full flavors that belie its modest ABV. Great session ale. Just be warned that this is more caramel/bread as opposed to the pungent floral hops being showcased in Go To, All Day, et al.

Can to English pint. Pours hazy amber-orange, fast head, some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, some malt. Taste is bitter. Body is a little thin, low carbonation. Finishes nicely bitter with hints of grapefruit, bread. Not a bad session ale.

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, pale and caramel malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a decent hoppiness for the lightness of the beer. Average texture. A solid session IPA.

Can. Orange copper color with fast dying head. Aroma is mostly fruity hops with some caramel hints, flavor similar. Overall a good IPA, but I'm not a big fan of bitter.

Great session APA closer to a lower gravity IPA. Had this on draft didn’t have the carbonation it needs but overall I would buy it over and over

355ml can from Beer Culture in New York. Rating from September 2013. Great can, worth the money just for the can, bonus that the beer inside was equally as good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark blonde, papaya and calamansi with a very light pale malt signature. High bitterness perception because the malts are light and pale. Clean yeast ( I might like an English yeast better for this one).

From BA review from 2-15-12 -
Had on-tap; served in a pint glass
Appearance – A deeper golden color with a little bit of haze. The white head that was present upon pouring slowly dissipated leaving a moderate amount of lacing, which for a 4.4 % was of pleasant surprise.
Smell – The smell is of nice hoppy nature. Mainly piney and floral, there are ever so light citrus notes which mix with a very light biscuit and toffee malt backbone.
Taste – The pine and floral hops are the first to come followed quickly by some biscuity malts. The malt backbone then sweetens as some toffee and a bit of citrus hop flavors come into play. These flavors take the taste to its end. Quite a nice transition and refreshing taste.
Mouthfeel - While I would classify it as a light to medium bodied beer, for the light abv. this beer has a much creamier more satisfying body then would be expected. The carbonation seems to suit the body quite nice, leaving a rather satisfying feel on the mouth.
Overall – While not the most potent and definitely not a “warmer”, for the very light abv it is surprisingly very flavorful and delicious. It is a very good brew to sit and sip on summer months while having a nice conversation with good friends (or when making new ones)
