3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Sean from bay area beers on trade...Pours hazy gold. Aromas of grass, pine, citrus rind and barn hey, malt character is low but has some interesting fruity fermentation characteristics . Medium bodied with more mouth-feel than the 3.8% alcohol would suggest. Flavors of grassy hops all the way though the palate. Some residual bitterness lingers. Finish is medium bitter that sicks on your tongue for a while. A good Session IPA, much like the Founders All Day IPA, but with more body and finesse despite the even lower alcohol content. Great session beer IPA. A-

On tap at the Grad in Davis CA. Not much too it. Pale yellow in color with a little bit of hop. Not bad for a session beer.

Bottle from Craftshack. Good amount of ibu bitter flavour, grapefruit. Ultimate would be to have fresh on tap. Very good drinkability. Medium mouthfeel. Very clean.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange with a small white head which fades to okay lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, dank hops,sweet malts, and some herbal hop notes. Taste is pretty simar to the aroma. Has a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tast, refeshing and highly sessionable APA.

Had a sample in a flight at Mohawk Bend. Solid, but strangely herbal. Refreshing, nicely hoppy.

Not sure how to rate this one, interesting blend, not quite a pale ale nor a wheat ale, a blend between the two, hard to replicate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Apex
A: Dull copper color with a crisp bubbly white head.
N: Lots of pineapple and grapefruit. Some pine and earth, though I’d call this fairly non-descript.
T: The taste is moderately bitter with a light sweetness. There’s not much to say about this other than that it’s clean.
M: Light and moderately sticky.
O: A decent quaffer. Not something I’d order very often (and I had some high hopes for it, because a 3.8% session beer is a great thing), but it does work to refresh the palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Salted Pig, Riverside CA. Low haze straw pour. Huge lacing. Nose is really nice juicy citrus, orange juice, papaya. Taste is very thin/watery up front, moving to grassy hops and citrus peel. Moves to juicy papaya and fresh orange juice. Light bodied/ultra sessionable. Refreshing. Clean, excellent.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Citrus, pine, damp forrest floor.
Appearance: Gold with a orange hue and a moderate but steady white head,
Flavor: dominated by floral/herbal hops with a hint of malt.
Palate: Light bodied, moderate carbonation with a mild but lingering bitterness.
Overall: An excellent light pale ale - perhaps enhanced by the current heatwave.
