4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can poured to pint glass. Sweet and fragrant aroma. Juicy hops bite, citric sweetness. This does not taste like a session beer, it’s become my new favorite low abv beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking rusty orange with a large frothy eggshell colored head. Aroma/flavor of dry citrus rind, amber malts, grain, lemon, passion fruit and a slight touch of copper. Medium body with aggressive carbonation and a lingering dry bitterness. This is really good and then when you consider the ABV it’s like WOW!!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz can from Hoboken Vine, 5/15/15
Aroma: The aroma is mostly resiny/pine hops, some clean lemon/citrus hops come through too
Appearance: Clear and bright orange in color with a frothing, lasting beige head and sheeting lace
Flavor: A lightly sweet taste, very clean from a flavor perspective, with a medium bitter finish
Palate: It has a quite smooth and clean feel, a lighter body, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Pretty much right on what I look for in a Session IPA. Nice flavor. Easy drinking. Low alcohol. It is a hint thin compared to the best ones, but otherwise, as you’d expect from Ballast Point, this is excellent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
So much flavour for such a light beer. Floral, citrus, pine, wood, herbage, mineral. Medium bitterness. Very nice, but too expensive to session in NZ.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice. A bit less punch (in flavor and alcohol) than the Sculpin, but a nice refreshing beer nonetheless. Perfect for a nice spring day in a lawn chair. Taste is grassy, touch of pine, touch of citrus, touch of hops. Slight soapy finish, but not off-putting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can pours a clear orange/copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of spicy caramel malt with citrus hops, grapefruit. Bright citrus flavors, sweet lemon and grapefruit, light tropical mango and a solid yet approachable malt backbone. Could use a little more bitterness to balance out the sweetness, but over pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice deep gold color with nice lacing and minimal head retention. Smells quite floral and hoppy. Tastes the same as it smells. If this had a higher ABV, it would be epic!

Great session beer with awesome citrus hop aromas. Average IPA color and light palate. Good flavor with fruit and hops up front and a very light malt backbone.
