3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a big sudsy white head that goes away. Big sweet floral mango and pineapple nose. Creamy medium light body with lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel with big bright piney notes and a very dry finish. Session ipa is a misnomer, these should be apas. But I see the nomenclature issue that drives the sales, so it’s fine--the more kickass apas we get, the better. Call them chardonnay for all I care.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught at SB. Pours a clear copper golden color with a small white head on there. Nose is extremely hop-forward, but pleasantly so; I got some great citrus and resiny notes to it, and I fell in love with it. Taste was nicely bitter and quite fresh, yet manages to remain very light. Really nice drink.
