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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a good IPA, but I wasn’t too thrilled with it. I’m not sure I would make this a staple in my fridge. I think it would make for a good session beer, but only because the hops aren’t as intese as usual in the style. The body seemed a little too light and empty. The hops were certainly there, but just not in the quantity I’d prefer.

This beer is super well balanced. Nice floral notes and bitter enough to give it a bite without being overpowering. Color rings true to west coast ipa style. Love the low(er) abv. Obviously not a "session" beer but I can rock this all day :)

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 23/8/2013. Pours a clear lightish golden with a small head. Has a beautiful floral, fruity aroma, featuring loads of passionfruit. The flavour includes sweet citrus fruit, a hint of stone fruit, and a lovely medium, lingering grapefruit bitterness. Has a light body and medium carbonation. This is a very nice IPA and quite impressive for something that weighs in at just 4.7% ABV.
