3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is another case of a beer that smells better than it tastes. Aroma is great citrus and peach. Straw colored in the glass with not much in the way of lacing. The flavor lacks the hop punch expected from the aroma, but is still pretty good. This finish is a little grainy and thin. This would be a good choice for a more sessionable IPA, but not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From can compliments of duffmansw. Golden pour with a decent white head. Aroma is pretty faint with mild hop presence and a touch of honey. Taste is malty and toasted bread with some nice hop presence but not very bitter at first. The bitterness is more aparent aftermath. Decent low abV IPA. beer pong? ???

Very hoppy and tasty for the ABV and price! Golden appearance with light mouthfeel. Really smells like citrus and floral hops. Nice bitterness at the end.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this on tap at out of the park pizza. It’s got a nice hoppy aroma, but the flavor is a bit benign and lacks the hoppiness the aroma promised.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from BeerbellyLA. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Big fresh citrus hop aroma, pungent and awesome. The body is thin and light malt with a pronounced citrus hop bite. A tad one dimensional, but tasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
a - nice reddish color with a minimal head. Dissipates to just the circumference with a light cloud scattered on top. a - big aroma, lemon zest, grapefruit, some minor tropical but mostly citrus takes it over. t - zesty hops, no maltiness, a slight bit of caramel/diacetyl present. The bitterness is nice and not too overpowering. This is a very light IPA, but drinkable. F - light bodied, easy to drink. o - overall, I would like a little more complexity and body to this. However, this is a great hoppy beer to have around for a session.
