3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6/15/14. 12oz bottle from Happy’s. Just noticed the bottle says best by 6/13/14. Shoot, missed it by a couple of days. Orange pour with a decent khaki head that sticks and laces well. Floral and citrus hop aroma, mild graininess. Light bitterness, some citrus pops, touches of pale graininess. Not bad.

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.
