3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 (Can, 0,473 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured pale golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grapefruit and citricness. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grapedruit, citricness, pine, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and fruity. Too one-dimensional but nice.

47,3 cl can @ home
Aroma has tropical fruits, pineapple juice and hints of biscuits. Feels a bit thin. Flavour has tropical fruits, pineappe juice and hints of cereal. Finishes with minerals, some grassy hops and menthol. Also grapefruit. A bit straightforward and the bitterness starts to feel a bit herbal and harsh at the end of the glass. Refreshing anyway.

Can. Pours a hazy bright straw color with very tiny bubbly head that disappears in seconds (but the color looks fantastic). Aromas of pine, citrus, and grass. Flavor was grapefruit, pine, and pineapple. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation. Suoper smooth to finish and insanely easy to drink. At 4.2% you wouldn’t expect something to have such a nice aroma and flavor, but this hit it perfect. Impressive. Can was an extra in a trade and wish I had another now.

Best Session IPA I’ve ever had. Solid hop flavor, but still light enough to make 12 a good idea

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to phillycraft. Hazy pale yellow pour with a small foamy head that fades to a messy ring. Aroma is perfumy pine, grapefruit, flowers, and light lemon. Tastes mildly bitter. Mostly pine with light grapefruit, lemon peel, and flowers. Very light bodied and goes down really easy. Nice session ale.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour golden yellow with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, freshly cut grass, and some biscuit malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tasty, very drinkable session IPA that I would love to drink on a hot summer day.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small white head that leaves fair lacing. Nice and fruity nose, bursting with tropical fruits. Taste is bitter to a moderately high level and fruity as well. Body is light, a bit thin but I can forgive since it is meant to be sessionnable. Nice one for sure, I’d pick it up again and again if I could! Fun and clean, like all session IPAs should be.
