Clear light copper. No head. Smells awfully hoppy. Very drinkable. Well balanced. Not dominating. Im liking this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is piney hop with some onion. Flavor is big time onion with a resiny finish. No real malty backbone and kinda thin all around. Lots of oniony hop though. Summit hops are supposed to give off the onion flavor and I’m guessing that is what was used. At 4.7 I still would not consider this a session beer. I think 3.2 would fit the category better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
3 bouteilles de 12 oz. Bière orangée avec une mousse blanche qui a un peu de texture. Le nez est très invitant avec cette tonne d’agrume. La bouche est bien constituée pour une bière de soif, c’est plaisant. Les agrumes du nez se retrouvent sous une mince couche de malt. Trop facile à boire, j’aime cette bière tout comme cette brasserie. Achetée au Vermont.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty much tastes like really fresh, dry-hopped bud light. I don’t really mean that as a dig, either....it’s crisp, clean, goes down easy. There’s a lot of hop aroma, and not much hop palate; nor is there any body to it at all. I get the idea, and it’s a good one, just needs a little more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours with a nice three finger head, but it goes down pretty quickly. What’s left behind is a thin, white layer of foam. Patchy lacing. Beer’s a very slightly hazy sunset yellow/orange color.
Smell: Holy hops. This beer isn’t shy about it either. Heavy hop aromas, with a largely predominant grapefruity smell.
Taste/feel: Straight away, I found with Ale la Reverend by Short’s that I’m not a huge fan of these "Light IPAs" as I refer to them. This has an extremely piney, resinous, and hoppy flavor with very little to no malts to be traced -- surprisingly decent. For the style, this is the best session IPA I’ve had. However, I’d rather have a full-on IPA.
Too long/didn’t read: This would make for a pretty average IPA, but it makes for an above average session IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours pale yellow, frothy white head with good retention. Nose of citrus and malt. Taste is balanced with a ton of late addition hops o give the blast of hop flavor. Finish is clean and a light body. This is a great APA. Yes, APA it is as it’s not sexy to call it all day APA.... Rating adjusted as such.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper/orange with a perfect 2 finger white head. Aroma is strong pine and resinous hops. Taste is focused on the resinous hops with some faint citrus notes and a nice earthy character on the finish. Mouthfeel is incredibly soft and a late developing tickle from the carb makes an appearance. I'm shocked at how good this is for a session beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear coppery orange. Small fizzy white head, almost no retention. Aroma is sweet, citrus, pine, lemon, grapefruit, fresh and clean. Flavor much the same. Medium body. Sweet with medium bitterness in finish. Fresh, clean, balanced, silky smooth. Definitely sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big ups to my man slovak for hooking me up with this as an extra in a trade. Pours nice and golden with a chunk of frothy head. Nice aroma, bits of grapefruit and citrus goodness. Well balanced, smooth up front, with a bit of sweetness and then a nice hoppy finish. well done.
