2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not impressed that this bottle ordered in May from Bring on the Beer was dated January. Bitter and light, might have been really good when fresh but was semi stale hop water (and I say hop water as a good thing) when I had it.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from a can. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a small, foamy head. The nose is fresh and citrusy, with some crisp, pale maltiness and a bit of floral. Crisp, light bitterness up front that fades to a sweet finish. Light to medium body, effervescent, crisp, and bright. A pretty solid session IPA, with a good hop nose, without any abrasive hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
resin, pine, grapefruit aromas; eggshell white long lasting rocky head, nice lacing, deep golden, hazy; medium bitterness, very light sweetness; lightness of the body and slight citrus astringency is balanced by fizziness, long slightly bitter orange-peel finish on the sides and front tip of the tongue. I enjoyed the evolution of this beer on the palate: presentation of hops followed by an initial feeling of "where’s the body and/or malt?"--not unpleasant--followed by a fizzy bitter citrus finish. I would not, however, enjoy more of this beer in one session.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light and refreshing, piney and fruity, citrus on the nose and a bit of apricot in the flavor. Hazy light amber in color, a substantial head in eggshell white, foamy and three fingers deep.Tasty and delightful. An exception to the pansy session IPA trend that goes on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange with a tall white head. Aroma is very citrus forward, grass, light toast. Strong grapefruit and tropical fruit finish. Bitter on the tongue. Medium thin body. Quite flavorful and not watery like many SIPAs. A standout in the style.

Can. Medium golden, frothy white head. Lovely bright citrus hop character with crackery malts, low sweetness, light but flavourful with mild bitterness. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Simple aroma of grapefruity and grassy hops, little else. Quite tart in the mouth, but otherwise balanced well. Nice body and mouthfeel for such a small beer. Nothing special but decent enough.
