3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap@bishops, gamla. Amber. Real nice fruity hoppy nose. Grapefruit, caramels, peaches. Soft nice body. Doesn’t feel watery, but light though. Hoppy lingering finish. Good session ipa. Understandably a bit thin in the middle, but very enjoyable still.

Tap@ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Mahogany color, thick white head. Citrusy fruity hoppy aroma, some sweetness, floral notes. Flavor has grapefruit, blood orange, juicy as hell. Lovely session IPA. Could drink this every day. More please.

12 oz. can. Nice grassy/floral/pine hop aroma from the pour. Clear medium yellow with a frothy white head. There’s a bit of herbal grassiness along with a grapefruit citrus and pith hop bitterness in the flavor. Nice smooth biscuity malt body to compliment but not overpower the bitter bite. The body is a bit watery but that’s probably the curse of a lighter session beer. Leaves behind a nice spicy bitterness with a bit of creamy, woody malt. Nice session IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2): Pours light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, and pine with light malt backbone. Taste is lightly bitter hops. Body is a little on the watery side. This is very light even for this characteristically light style. Refreshing and even a little sweet. It is kind of what I was looking for.

I was disappointed with this one. Had a tuna fishing trip out of San Diego, but this just seemed too watered down surprisingly, even for the "style" of session IPA. I mean, it did taste like a light IPA as opposed to an American pale, but the flavor just didn’t work for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful citrus grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is not as hoppy as the smell, but still there. Bitter hop finish. Citrus hops not in the flavor that much. Nice malty backbone. Very good session ipa. Very balanced and flavorful. For the price I would probably just get sculpin. Has sculpin hop aromas but the citrus hops don't come through in the flavor like in sculpin. But still a good session ipa. Maybe slightly too piney finish.

"Session" pale ale (SD session beer is what they call it). Solid aromatics, abounding in citrus. Big nose, semi sweet adequately bitter flavor. Pretty easy going.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big hop aroma. All kinds of citrus going on. Full copper color. White head settles to a thick ring. Flavor is a hop bomb with citrus and soda.
