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.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a somewhat hazy copper with a white head of foam that dissipates at a moderate rate. The aroma is sort of piny and herbal. The taste is mostly resinous and bitter. Light to medium body with medium carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear gold. Aroma of grain, bread, some floral notes, I guess pilsner malt. Very bland taste, no hop flavor or particular malt character. Light mouthfeel with a bit of resin. Not particularly bad but, no real flavor. Even though itís a session beer, it should have more flavor than this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange amber with a foamy tan head and great lacing. Aroma of earthy citrus hops. Taste is smooth and bready with almost peppery hops followed by a background bitterness that leaves a dry crisp tingle on your tongue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at House Beer. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Clear copper pour with a thin soapy white head and light sticky lacing ... Aroma is light and of piney and citrusy hops orange and a bit floral ... Taste is of bitter piney, light floral and citrusy hops with a caramel malt backbone ... Has a dry lingering bitter hop bite ... Simple and more like a pale ale

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle via 6pack from Spirits Brick. Poured a good looking clear honey amber body under an average foamy white head. Aroma is very earthy, dry toast, lemon, bread crusts. Great palate, medium body, assertive carbonation, bitter and dry finish that lingers. Flavor is similar to the aroma with lots of earthiness, dirty citrus rind, lemon, dry toast and grain husks. Nice enough but prefer a bit more juiciness from my IPAs.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at the bocktown. At first I didnít think this stuff would be an IPA but as the session continued, it certainly developed that rude IPA feeling on the back center of your tongue. Not much aroma. So, I didnítí think it hoppy at first but it does develop a hop impression as time goes on. The IPA thing starts to get more forward. Overall, hardly ever impressed with this style and I wasnít here.
