4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really packs in a good west coast hoppy pine and citrus aroma for only 3.8%. Iím a sucker for session IPAís because they taste great and Iíve learned over the years that many, if not most situations I donít want a 7-10% beer but I always want some flavor. I can definitely see me picking up some more next summer for going up north and hanging out on the boat during the day. Still not my favorite session IPA but very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. It pours a deep golden color with a foamy off white head. The aroma is very floral, leafy and citrusy with mild hints of caramel in the background but very hop forward. The flavor has more leafy, herbal, floral hop notes with some grapefruit and lightly toasted caramel. The bitterness is a little strong in the finish, and it has a little more caramel than I would like, but the hop character is up front and center. The strong bitterness gives keeps it dry in the finish as well. Overall, pretty nice, but I wouldíve liked less specialty malt and less bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque amber with a fizzy, bubbly white head. Feel is very light, but there is a strong, dry hop presence, with some light citrus and light resin. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of hops, lemon, and resin.

Spectacular aroma is standout feature. Remarkably full bodied for the strength which makes it an ideal session ale (as advertised).

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 12 oz. can from Ales Unlimited. Hazy orange colored body with an off-white head. Nose of light floral hops and grapefruit. Taste of grapefruit citrus on a smooth malt base with a bit of cracker and cereal. Not piney. Well balanced. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation and mild bitterness. Everything a session IPA should be; light, tasty, refreshing and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can from Beer Culture, New York
Pours clear golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of pure fresh hops, grapefruit, lemon, pine and citrus. Taste is smooth, citrusy and piney with loads of fresh juicy hoppiness. Finish is watery, hoppy and fruity with some citrus and pine. Quaffable and hoppy session IPA, although a bit light bodied and watery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden brown from the can with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is great hoppy citrus notes that go into nice malty backbone. Taste follows, way more than the 3.8% abv would make you assume. Very nice beer, definitely will be drinking a few of these.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasty session ipa, albeit with maybe a touch too many hops. Some orange notes happen early on, but then the beer slides into a long, bitter finish that swallows much of the flavor. Itís still pretty flavorful for under 4%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can, picked up at the recommendation of OldMrCrow. Pours clear amber with rocky white head. Aroma: mostly onions. My wife says it smells piney and not at all like onions, so what do I know? Taste: Minimally sweet, moderately bitter end. Palate: lean and clean. Light body, average carbonation. Overall: Impressive session IPA, especially at 3.8% ABV.
