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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl Bottle. Appearance is cloudy, orange color with light, off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus hops, spice, and grain. Taste is hops up front with favors of grapefruit and passion fruit. Subtle malt base with grains and toast. Well-balanced, light mouthfeel. Palate is medium-bodied, smooth but thin texture, dry and clean finish. Nice beer with good IPA flavor without the heavy malt bill.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus forward, bunches of pine in the aroma. The apricot brew is capped with a soft white head and upon sipping, proves to be lightly bitter, but very drinkable. Light-bodied and fresh, the palate lingers a little long for me considering the lack of real flavor in the brew. This is about 3.5 months off the bottling, so it may very well have lost something in the time gone by. I may try this again if I can get it fresh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Session ipa dal colore dorato molto chiaro, leggermente velato, con schiuma bianca a grana media abbondante e persistente. Al naso note di frutta gialla (pesca e albicocca) si fondono bene con il sentore di biscotto. In bocca ha una buona carbonazione con un corpo tendente al watery. Al palato sentori citrici ed erbacei accompagnano la bevuta con un bel sottofondo di biscotto. Chiusura secca con un buon amaro. Molto equilibrata e dalla beva facile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear golden color - not as dark as typical IPA. Great nose - floral, fresh, piney. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, very mild hops. Less bitter than most IPAs, but this is a really good, easy drinking beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tan with orange tinges, pretty clear, good head and lace.
Aroma is very nice, plenty hoppy and inviting, more than you’d expect from anything with "session" in the name. Same goes for the taste, it’s plenty IPA-like, while being superbly drinkable, even almost summertime lawnmower drinkable. "Refreshing" isn’t an IPA type of term very often, but this time it just about fits.
