3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright yellow. Nice white head. Nose is pretty weak. Citrus and pine. Almost no malt bill. Drinkable but not revolutionary.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a fairly thin head. Loose, sudsy lacing along the glass. Steady stream of carbonation can be seen throughout the beer which creates a prickly sensation on the tongue and back of the throat. Aroma is highly hopped for a lower ABV beer. Flavor is nice and easy drinking with a good hop presence but only a slight bitterness in the finish. A nice sessionable IPA.

Thanks for the bottle, OmegaX. The aroma was full of fresh hops; almost smelling like vegetables. It tasted dry and palatable with undertones of grapefruit and bitter orange peel. Seriously refreshing stuff here.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the Brass Tap. Cloudy orange/yellow pour with a white head. Non-descript hop aromas. Bland Pearl style hops. Bitter but with no real sense of purpose. Disappointing.....

Bottle. Clear light amber. Aroma of grass, pine, and dust. Literally, dust in aroma. Some citrus as well. Light body, lively, prickly carbonation, thin texture. Taste is grassy and herbal, some pine. Appropriate bitter finish. Overall: nice session ipa, which I appreciate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really digged this IPA. Drank from the bottle. Aroma is all grapefruit, pummelo, pine trees, and wet dirt. Flavors match up pretty similarly. Well balanced. A touch of sweetness but on the drier side. I love the low ABV. My only complaint is that it gives me an insta-headache every time I had one.

Nice IPA. Not overpowering or in your face hops, which I liked. Typical IPA notes without all the hops and I enjoyed that. Don’t get me wrong, I love a strong IPA, but this was a nice change of pace.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a Sixer from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into American shaker. Nice light amber-golden color with slight haze. Medium head quickly disappeared. Minimal lacing. aroma of fruits such as apples and grapefruit. Slight pine and resin also. Taste is not the hop explosion you get so often in current IPAs on the market. More like a Pale Ale. But the the taste has the hoppy flavors like citrus and pine which I love. Lower alcohol creates the right scenario for lots of flavor minus the quick buzz. Dry and crisp finish. Moderate carbonation. Very nice for slamming a few on a hot day or while grilling.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear but slightly hazy copper with a small white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, pine, cloves, and wheat. Taste is pine, clove, and wheat bread. Both the taste and the aroma are pretty basic. Definitely nothing in your face. Palate is dry, crisp, light and clean with a short and dry but nice finish of malty wheat bread. This is what I would call an old school IPA. The kind of IPA you’d find 10 or more years ago before IPAs were popular and before every company was trying to out hop one-another with their IPAs. Very basic, but in a nice way. Far from the usual hop-bomb IPAs so prevelant today. Very subdued and extremely drinkable. If this were stronger than a session beer, it wouldn’t work at all as it is definitely nothing special as far as IPAs go. But this is refreshing and tasty enough to be a very nice session beer. Certainly nothing worth seeking out other than as a session beer or for introducing someone into the world of IPAs.
