4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can. Tons of floating particulate. Tangerine-hued -- where I can pick up the color through the dust. A nice inch of sticky-bubbled white head. Grapefruit peel, yellow onion and lime juice in the nose. A little dank, a little funky. The flavor copies the bouquet. We have snappy grapefruit peel, wet grass, a hint of onion and tangy lime. Less funk than the nose, more crisp and citrusy. Cleaner, too. Moderate, pinching bubbles in a cotton-soft medium-light body. Moderate bitterness lingers for a long while. A complex session IPA. Wonderful hop flavor and aroma, good snap, and all with an ABV below 5.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Soft, a little sweet, some powdered sugar like citrusy bits. Not as crisp as the Easy Jack I had just before this. This one has a lot more pith that lingers, and its drier. More citrus peel too. More like a regular IPA, albeit the citrusy bitterness doesn’t last long. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Light copper color with a substantial amount of fine floaters. Boarderline too many. Aroma of caramel and pine hops. Flavor is nice and balanced. Caramel malts and pine and grapefruit. Surprisingly complex and flavorful fo a 4.5% IPA. All the flavors just a little thin on the mouthfeel. Possibly one of the best session IPA’s I’ve ever head.

16oz can pours a hazy orange with some swirling white head. Nose is nice, dusty hop pellets, lime, tangerine, orange, mild pine, mild soap, a hint of malt sweetness. Flavor is solid, lime, tangerine, soap, a little honey comb, some mild pine. Zesty, clean, refreshing finish. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can - pours cloudy golden with a ton of sediment and thick white head. Nose of grapefruit and hops. Taste is of mellow hop, orange grapefruit, and lemon. Almost tastes like a radler to me, very smooth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark gold under a thin foamy white head. Nose is dank with some leafy farm picked hops and a bit of marajuana, maybe a touch of lime zest as well. Bitter leafy hop flavor on the front with some subtle dank weed tones, and a little mixed citrus zest. Earthy slightly resinous flavor on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another dip into the Session IPA. This version gives you a really nice sweet malty nose that leads into similar flavors, hints of tropical fruits, a decent medium body, and a nice sour pine hop towards the finish.
