2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank from a can. Aroma is sweet, a mix of fruit and grass. Flavor is subtle. I get grass more than citrus or anything else. Has a bitter finish, but the mouthfeel is flat. A light body is good for sessions, but this lacks any carbonation. This is okay, though nothing to compete with the All Day IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a very pale golden with a bit of a white head leaving some streaks of lace. Aroma has strong citrus - orangey, lemon zest, grapefruit - and floral hops, some other fruits, with maybe some bread. Taste follows; heavy citrus, light some other things with a touch of a biscuity malt presence. Light to medium bodied, fuller bodied than it looks. Finishes quite bitter, without a full-blown blast of bitterness. Very nice, very hop-forward brew that I really enjoyed. 14.4

Medium yellow and lace sheet. 60 ibu and lagery a touch farmhouse. Decent drinkability if first beer of the day.

Poured a light cloudy golden yellow color with aromas of grapefruit, pine, citrus and light grass. Flavors are the same grapefruit, resin, pine light citrus and a touch of malt. A nice session ipa that 8 could drink straight from the can.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Can. Thanks Sean! Mosaic-y pungent pine, fruit, plastic and cat aroma. Maybe a little Citra thrown in there. Heavy on the hop flavors, albeit new wave American high alphas, with all the expected tropical everythings. My favorite part about this beer is the body. At 4%, it feels light and quaffable, easy-going, but isnít the least bit watery nor thin. Itís session structure done really well. Iíd take a different run of hop flavors, but if youíre into these strains than this is going to be a very desirable Session beer.

12 ounce can into pint glass; no canning date, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/grassy hops with some light malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/grassy hops and light malt balance; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected for 4%. Overall this is a very good session IPA. Good complexity and balance of bright citrus/grassy hops with light malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: The aroma is pretty light and consists of light citrus, grapefruit, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent gold with a two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of fruit/citrus. The finish has light grapefruit, pine, and a touch of grass. Itís light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, itís a nice thirst quencher, but itís not as flavorful as some of the better Session IPAs.
