4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can from Woodman’s. Upon opening, the aroma seduces you in milliseconds "must taste, must taste!" One taste, you’re hooked - maybe for all day! Very nice, rewarding brew for those who appreciate their hop kiss long and wet, start to finish. Could hold a head longer, but, the malty taste suffices and that piney-citrus flavor is addictive. Enjoy one, or all day - either way you cannot go wrong with this fine offering from an artful brewer. Prosit!

Hazy and golden in color with a nice white head. Big grape fruit citrus aroma. Some light orange taste and citrus flavor with that IPA bitterness. Good beer

I liked it. it’s delicious.
What I don’t get is why calling this an "All day IPA, session ale". Founders should call it something like "All day Bitter, session ale" not IPA. This recipe is less alcohol and a little hoppier than their own Pale Ale. Anyway. At the end is a really nice "all day" refreshing, hoppier, pale ale.

Of all the session IPAs that have cropped up recently, this is very clearly one of the best. Excellent balance and bold hopping alongside the lower ABV. Refreshing and of course extremely sessionable. A well made beer all round.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange color with medium head. Piney-citrusy hop aroma, American style. Taste is light-bodied fruits and a pleasant bitterness. Rather dry, not so sticky. This only has 4.7 ABV, nice! Good perly carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Really great aroma, slightly citrusy, almost west coast IPA like. Really great taste, crisp with a smooth finish, great juicy mouthfeel leaves you coming back for more. Highly recommend.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Copper color, medium head. Aroma of american hops. Flavor is thick and sweet with some bitterness in the finish. This is like all session IPA’s to me -- unbalanced. Well made, but not my cup of tea.

Honey to yellow colour. Pine and citrus aroma from hops. Bitterness as I like it intensive but not too strong. I need another sip...

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 Nice beer, aggressively hopped. Relatively bitter. Becomes more balanced after the first few sips. Not my favorite, but with a certain charm and charisma.
