2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bland, boring, forgettable, not bad, not good, truly the middle-of-the-road. As "session IPAs" go this is one of the lesser ones Iíve tried, seems like GD isnít giving themselves enough credit with some of their recent new releases. They used to make lots of really exciting stuff.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can into a stange.
A: Poured an entire glass full of head. Hand washed the glass so...unsure what happened here. Mostly clear brass colored body. Big rocky head looks like ice cream soda. Disappointed. OK fuck it, it looks like a beer.
S: Malty scent.
T: Roundly bitter hops flavor. Earthy and maybe a bit floral. Crisp malts noticed but definitely playing a supporting role. More APA taste than IPA.
M: Medium bodied with less carbonation than I expected considering the flood of head at the pour.
O: The head overflow may have been my fault. However Average tasting beer + expensive as hell means I wont be buying this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into a glass. Golden pour. Persistent half-inch of thick, foamy head. Aroma of light citrus, some grass, lemon zest. Taste is sweet, floral, lightly bitter, some lingering grassiness. Easy drinking. Refreshing. Nothing special. Solid, inoffensive IPA.

12oz into bottle. Pours a copper gold. Taste of mineral hops, grass, ripe pineapple. Aroma of dried orange, melon, seemingly up front hops yet distant in the end. Smooth, OK, and done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is rather toned down, but is hoppy alright, with a deeper kind of grapefruit tone and clean malts with an earthy undertone. Taste is lightly sweet, with a down to earth hop profile. Mild resin, northern forest tones, pine and citrus. The bitterness drives in a separate lane, and is quite prominent. I donít know, itís kinda... stern and rugged in this otherwise clean beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is a decent minty and pne hop. Flavor is a more agressive hop with litle or no malt presence. Fi is is a bit thin but you do get some of the hop flavor after th swallow. This is a pretty soild hoppy beer. Since when did 5% beers become session beers?

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange and hasa lot of sediment in suspension. White sticky head. Aroma is spiced malt. Flavor has a forward bite and is bitter and sweet, well balanced. I expected to not like this due to other reviews, but they were too low. Itís quite delicious.

Pours golden with low white head. Aroma is of fruits, citrus. Taste is pretty much the same, some bitterness. Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. Good balance. Overall: Good, classic. Straight-forward and not ground-breaking.
