3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz picked up a while back... I forget where I found it, but a fair number of places have it available now... Pours a pale straw... decent enough white head with spotty lacing..
Nose shows biscuity malt with bunches of lemony and grassy hops..
Flavor strikes me as a pretty heavy wheat/pale maltiness for anything labeled close to an IPA... but the bitterness balances pretty well and a good amount of light citrus and herbal/lite pine hops come in and make this very drinkable.
Light body... good carbonation.. plenty of flavor... Pretty darn nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is slightly hazy golden with a two finger white head that left plenty of lacing. The aroma is citrusy and grassy. The taste is rather light up front but finishes with a extremely mild hop and citrus kick. To be honest this beer doesn’t really taste like an ipa all that much and if I were rating it on the style it is rather low. However, there is nothing bad about the beer and worth a try but don’t expect this to be anything like a regular ipa as it is weaker than most other session ipa’s

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Bottle via trade. Light gold with a small head. Nose is pretty papery. Come candy corn. Doesn’t smell like a session IPA to me. Taste is very papery. Light a knackered pilsner. Some apple and old dried grass. Light body, soft carbonation. An embarrassing effort.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. I think this one is under rated. Maybe that’s because I dig low gravity, lightly hopped beers. Anyway, this one pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma has fresh honeydew melon, a little grapefruit and passionfruit. Mild, but pleasant. The flavor has some stronger notes of passionfruit, a little mango and grape. Clean tasting and not too bitter. Nice stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a bad IPA. Rather usual and customary for an IPA. Decent hops in the nose and finish. A sweet body in the middle. Light on the alcohol.
