3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sweet citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Bodega. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and a bit of malt. Light-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character that has zesty citrus and malt notes. The finish is hoppy with a lingering orange rind aftertaste. Overall this is a tasty lower-ABV IPA. I have generally been a fan of this trend.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from Dutchís, served in a pint glass. Pours a just barely cloudy gold color with a good amount of rising carbonation bubbles and a small, creamy off-white head that leaves a trailing sheet of uneven lace. Aroma of fresh, grassy hops, grapefruit citrus, and sweet bread. Flavor of citrus peel, fresh hops, tangerine, and not much malt to speak of. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, citrusy mouthfeel. Good IPA. I donít know if it qualifies as "session" at 5%, but maybe by RB or American craft standards thatís passable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Clear amber color. Nice thin foamy off-white head, that really stays. Good lace. Active-looking carbonation. Really nice smooth texture, dry finish. Massive hay, straw citrus peel hop aroma. Oregano. Very flavorful, with a great aftertaste. Good light bitter taste, but it doesnít distract from the aroma, complements it. Really, a great session IPA, gives founders All-day a run for itís money.

Draft. Pours clear amber in color with a big fluffy off white head. The aroma has a nice hoppy citrus, pine and tropical fruit blend with some sweet bready malt. The flavor has more citrus and tropical fruit, light resiny, mild toasted sweet bread and grass. Moderate bitterness to the finish. Pretty good at 5%.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks like pale lager. Nice lacing. First taste is a little slaggy. Somewhat like the smell of grammas permanent hair treatment. Very little co2. On tap at Vintage Estate. Quite stong of an impression for a 5%. Smell is just plain beery and overall its a little more acceptable than most in this style

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
this poured a semi cloudy orange color with a white cover. Aroma was lightler citrusy hops, some lemon peel, and toasted grain. Falvor as much the same, fairly balanced, but a little too heavy for what it is, and not much hop pop that their other ipas have. A bit disappointing.
