3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in a trade from awlcordell. Clear and honey gold with just a little almost white foam. Tropical fruit and pine with light malts. This is a nice version of a session IPA with enough sweetness to offset the hops.

I had only a small amount of this as a taster, but it was very bright with nice citrus and tropical fruit on the nose and the palate. Really easy to drink. Wish I had more than a taster!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rusty Bucket, Dayton, OH, draft. Blond. Cloudy. Aroma of grapefruit. Fizzy head. Bitter and hoppy and crisp, fizzy. Good lacing. Carbonated. Thin mouthfeel. Kinda of thin, lacking oomph. Is a session IPA, but so is Founders All Day.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Semi-clear, golden yellow body with a soapy, bone white head that quickly reduces to a big bubbled collar. Very nice, juicy & dank tropical fruit aroma. Gushing pineapple, guava, peach, & tangerine with a light dankness, tons of hop oil, & a big, wet grass finish. Very nice. Taste has more of a leafy, earthy spice hop character. The tropical notes take a backseat, but they’re still there. Wet pines, grass, light weeds, & just a light touch of soapiness. Dry, wet grass & pine finish. A very nice session ale with a juicy aroma.

Bottle from mdg164, thanks Marc for the addition! Pours a clear golden orange with a white head leaving a lot of drips of lace. Aroma has fresh fruits, citrus and pine. Just a terrific aroma. Taste is of orange, grapefruit, some pine and some fruits - mango mostly. Medium bodied and hoppy. Finishes nicely balanced between bitter and sweet, but without a lot of length. Very hop forward, just without following well into the taste - which would take it to the top of sessionables. 14.2

Bottle, thanks to Summer Secret Santa. Clear, light copper pour with a fluffy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peaches, bready malt. Medium bitter. Good malt base to back up the hops. Mouthfeel on the thin side. Tasty stuff!
