At BPB. Hazed yellow orange pour with gooey lace. Sweet malt aorma backed by solid hops. Very hoppy but good malt balance. A lemony hard bitter finish (nice) just a bit fizzy with medium body. Another very refreshing drinker that has a lot to offer.

Cask at O’Brien’s: Golden color with a light white foamy head. The nose is pronounced with that typical fresh ask hoppy note. The flavor is a bit on the dry side but has a nice chewy malt backbone to back up all the hops. The finish is tangy and lightly sweet with some honey flavors. A balanced APA that just loves being on cask.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on tap at brewery during the RBSG 2008. This pale ale pours a medium amber color from the tap. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium to lighter bodied Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. A touch of peach as well. Light and refreshing. Good flavors, at 3.5% alcohol this would be a great session ale. I could see drinking this on the porch on a warm summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Growler from JC’s, wasn’t terribly impressed by the sample but wanted to give it a chance with volume, where my opinion of these lighter offerings tends to improve. Nose orange peel and citrus, very hoppy , pine. Pours hazy orange with a lacing, rocky off-white head. Taste is extremely, bone dry and strongly bitter, light wood and resin, touch of astringency. The light body makes the bitterness stand out all the more. No signs of alcohol, no signs of malt, but great repeatability for such imbalance. Crisp, refreshing session, ein gelungenes Experiment

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.

3.7 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.

33cl can at the 2nd Annual Midlands tasting on 27th June 2015: cheers Martin. Golden pour with a good white topping. Tropical fruits in the aroma of this hoppy brew, mildly citrusy in the taste: nice blend and proof American brewers can produce a decent beer without too much alcohol in the brew.
