3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pale amber with an inch of loosish white head that sticks around. Aroma of grapefruit, passionfruit, peach, crackers. 7 Light bodied, really nothing in the middle. A little sweetness with crackers and slight toast. A hint of butterscotch - maybe an attempt to fill things out a bit? Light tropical notes, more grapefruit and some lemon. Dry with moderate bitterness at the end. Sure, the alcohol is lowish but I couldn’t drink several pints of this. OK dust-cutter.

From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.

Misc.: Born on April 2, 2015
Poured a honey, pale, mostly clear color with three fingers of khaki-white, frothy head. A good amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.63)
Smelled sharp Citra notes up front, mainly grapefruit and nectarine rind. Also caramel, peppery spices, floral, tropical, light mango, rye and buttery malts late. (Smell -
(Smell - 4.25)
Taste was much less flavorful than the nose, unfortunately. Got Citra, rye, iced tea, floral, grapefruit zest, caramel, lemon, light pine and mango rind. (Taste - 3.50)
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)
This was just an OK session ale. I rated it as a pale ale (according to Beer Advocate), but there are much better options out there. (Overall - 3.50)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 12oz can. $9.99 six pack. A great example of the style. First of all it is 3.8%, whereas most session IPAs tend to just sneak under 5.0%. Whatever...this is excellent either way. Solid, steady hop bill. Mellow citrus grapefruit tones fitting for the style. The malt has a little depth to it to, not the seltzer feel. Solid offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. It’s quite malty on the nose, bready and lightly caramel-.ish, but there’s also a nice hoppyness, with pine cones, grapefruit and a generic citrus touch. It’s medium bodied, quite dry and with a tad too much carbonation. Quite bitter, with grapefruit, pine cones and some citrus peel. Lasting bitter, grapefruity finish. A bit on the malty side this one, but it sure ain’t a bad one. 150612
