3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle, pours a golden orange amber with small head which quickly goes leaving a lacing throughout. The smell more than anything is fruity, pineapple and mango with a slight pine hop notes coming through. I was expecting this to be sweet from the smell but initially you are hit with some bitterness of the hops before the fruity and pine notes come through. Nothing is over-powering and it reminds me of the Sierra Nevada American Pale Ale in many ways (no bad thing at all in my book). It has a great mouth feel, enough flavours clings and it feels a bit chewy. As per it’s title this is the sort of thing I would be very happy to drink all day, too bad I only have the one bottle! Lovely stuff!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with thin lacing. Piney aroma. Hoppy at first sip, but flavor falls off quick to almost nothing. Good easy drinking beer, appropriately named.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit and grapefruit. Crisp and dry with tropical fruit, grapefruit and a bit of pine. Really nice balance. This was a big hit at a family gathering, even amoung those that don’t typically like IPA’s.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours an orangish Amber color with a medium white head that leaves light lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, tropical and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light and chewy with great carbonation. This is the best session ipa I’ve had. Still hoppy and full of flavor with a lower abv that makes it nice for sporting events and other activities.

Bon, je vais finir par l’archiver celle-là. En provenance d’une de ces merveilleuse caisse de 12-can. Belle floralité au nez, corps juteux et adéquatement carbonaté, amertume responsable et buvabilité irresponsable.

As a backup option I went with a beer that I have had a few times but never actually rated. An excellent session beer is one of the best examples that bigger does not always equal better. A fresh bottle of this should be a staple in any Midwestern fringe.
Aroma / Appearance - The soft fluid mouthfeel sticks in the throat with a pleasant bitterness. The gentle hop foundation builds so that it does not immediately disappear after each sip. A malty appearance emerges after a while as well. I could easily drink a couple of these without the palate wearing down.
