3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dig this one. Session IPAs are all about showcasign the hop. This does that, and the hop choices are solid. Fruity and bright. light on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear classic golden color with an ample, snow white head. Clean citrus and pineapple nose. Wet mouthfeel with some light scrubbiness. Flavor follows the nose pretty faithfully. Some bitterness and a bit of a stale quality at the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Bronx Ale House. Slightly funky with muted hop action. Some yeast, orange peel, and bread in the flavor. The aroma is pleasant, but overall this didn’t win me over.

A mild IPA with lower alcohol and not a strong bite. It does feel like a session IPA. Light aroma of pine, citrus, lemon, hops. Body is sweet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head that settles to a film and collar. Aroma has soft citrus sweet spruce and light caramel malt. Taste is similar with a nice bitterness that not over the top. Palate is clean crisp with good carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint glass . Pours golden reddish, clear, smallish white head. You would think this type of beer should be served quite cold, but the aroma is weak and improves significantly as it warms. Then there is some honey and dough and spruce. Taste is very light toasty and hops. Pretty thin mouthfeel. OK for being a session.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Julio’s Light copper with dense head and lace. Citrus aroma with a little spice and some dishwater or something. (Glass is clean and lace is perfect.) Mild peachy melony sweetness with mild toasted nuts and herb and citrus bitterness. Fairly dry light slightly watery and lively carbo. Pretty good but not up with the best session IPAs (like Green Flash Citra Session, Easy Jack, or Pinner, for example).

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Twelve ounce can from Boulevard summer variety 12 pack purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on August 7, 2015. Cloudy orange/yellow hue, strong bittersweet nose with lots of grapefruit, taste like the aroma with some resin as well. Pretty easy to drink but some distracting astringency lowers the score significantly.
