3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light golden-orange into the glass, with a wispy head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is nice, of barnyard accents along with pine notes. Flavors have bright citrus, lemon-orange-grapefruit, alongside some hay grainy notes, finishing with light pepper. The mouthfeel just edges the medium embodiment, with an active palate ensuing. Very nice for a session IPA. Substantive, yet light enough to keep one’s judgment acute.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is citrusy hops and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet, fruity, grassy, lightly malty with a little bitterness. Balanced and drinkable, seems like what they were shooting for.

im not an ipa person, but its neat having a beer that has the hop flavor, but not that bitter aftertaste on the tongue. i get the session ipa angle now.

Inviting hoppy aroma, deep golden bodied IPA. For me even though the beer does not live up to the aroma it had me going back for sip after sip. Citrus and pine flavors combine with malts for an session friendly IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper/orange with a perfect 2 finger white head. Aroma is strong pine and resinous hops. Taste is focused on the resinous hops with some faint citrus notes and a nice earthy character on the finish. Mouthfeel is incredibly soft and a late developing tickle from the carb makes an appearance. I'm shocked at how good this is for a session beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Eulogy. Pint glass. Poured a hazy amber with a large white head that settled to a foam ring. Good balanced mix of hops. Fuller body than expected. Flavors are clear and pronounced but not overpowering. Solid and smooth for such a low ABV.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very clean and fruity nose. Some citrusy bitterness initiallywhich then gives way to soft malts. There is a lingering, hollow bitterness, which I frequently find in session ales, and is really my least favorite aspect of them. Good flavours but the mouthfeel is lacking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Pineapple, grapefruit, lychee and pale malt. Fresh and zingy.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a thin white head that slowly fades. Average carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Tropical fruit with a faint cheesy note. Lemon and biscuit. Bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: Delicious - reminds me of a slightly weaker version of BrewDog’s Punk IPA, which is also excellent.
