3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours light amber in color with a tall white head and some nice lacing.
S: A really good aroma to this. Nice pine notes as well as some citrus (grapefruit). There’s a bit of biscuit malts along with mild grass and some herbal hops. Very resinous and oily.
T: Mild toffee flavor and sweetness on the flavor. Plenty of grass and pine hop notes, but not quite as much citrus. Just a bit of grapefruit peel and a pretty decent bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: Really great nose on this. The flavor isn’t quite as good, but it’s still enjoyable and at sub-5%, really easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 4.7%. Mild juicy grapefruit aroma. Cloudy golden orange colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off nicely bitter. Has a bready and nicely aromatic flavour. A little watery, but nicely mineraly mouthfeel. Not powerful, but like it says on the label, a session IPA.

Thin and filtered, with mango and pineapple notes. Dull light amber colour. Just too thin and filtered...it’s an overwhelming impression.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from sethdude. Pours clear amber gold with a slight off-white head. Aroma is mixed hop - but earthy/floral seems reasonable for deScription. It’s coming across full bodied - but it thins appreciably as the carb goes away. So, with this much carb, where was the head? Meanwhile the flavor is hoppy, a bit light on malt backbone, but quite bitter. And hoppy. Not exactly a go to IPA, but damn straight it’s a go to very flavorful session ale. I hope some gets over the pond for our cousins.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.
