3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Tap East Festival. Light gold with a small head. The nose is countryside meadow. Light grassy hops. A bit of lemon cake and bread. The taste is light floral hops, grass. Fairly soft and approachable. Some brioche. Light bitter finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a pretty easy-drinking beer. Not taxing on the palate. The kind of thing youíd bring to a BBQ on a warm day, I guess.

Bottle. I gave the appearance a 1 because I obviously couldnít fairly judge it in a bottle. That being said this beer is great! A beer that has a soft malty finish, an IPA you can actually drink ALL DAY.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is about one finger high and white, with a somewhat rough-looking texture. It retains itself alright, though, and leaves some lacing on the side of the glass.
S: Iíve noticed how I kind of like catty IPAs, and this one fits that mold. The hops also provide melon, mango, and herbal notes. There is a touch of sweetness, as well.
T: The first sip strikes me weirdly with its finishing herbal hop tones. After another sip, it smooths out nicely. There are twinges of juicy tropical fruits on the front end; I wish this was more pronounced. Otherwise, itís a simplistic, enjoyable small IPA.
M: I look for these kind of beers to be crisp and light - and this fits that criteria well. Iíd enjoy it more if some of the finishing astringency was cleaned up a touch, but this still has good drinkability.
O: Good, not great. As much as I love trying these session IPAs, thereís only one so far I can say I loved (DayTime). Not to mention, session IPAs donít make a huge amount of sense from a monetary standpoint. Having said that, between All Day and Centennial, Iíd choose this one every single time.

Bottle. Fantastic ipa and much like two hearted ale, an all around "all day" kind of ipa. Good beer

Just like it says on the bottle, this beer is very session-able. Aroma of hops. A clean and crisp flavor with a mild sweetness and a soft bite at the finish. Thanks for the trade JB.

This jewel was sent to me by Stryzone. Thanks Dave for another great beer. Poured an apricot color with a big bubbled fizzy head head that settled quickly and left light lacing. Nose is grapefruit Light to medium in body with a bitter on the back of the tongue mouthfeel. Flavor is lots of citrus and some pine on a nice caramel malt base. Well balanced. The finish is flavorful and bitter. This is really easy drinking. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, moderate to heavy grapefruit and grapefruit peel for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with a hint of date. Head is small, frothy off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then the fairly long finish is lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Damn, what an awesome hop presence in this IPA. I could drink this...."All Day"!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very drinkable - fruity hops and a slight bitterness in the finish. Not to heavy as expected for a session beer.

Itís a clear gold with a thin medium white head. The aroma is a strong hops with a very light hint of citrus. Itís a surprisingly light to medium bitter with a touch of sweet. The palate, also surprisingly, is light to medium with a slightly sticky texture. This is an interesting IPA. Itís not a spectacular IPA, but itís unique in that it is well suited for the the summer. Odd for an IPA in my opinion.
