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.

Very light IPA, 4% AC. Not very bitter, and though it caries the IPA name on itís can, it lacked the hoppiness that I prefer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a can into tumbler, pale yellow with some orange hues, perfectly clear and large very bubbly white head. Light aromas, with some oranges, straw, biscuit. Medium light body with light carbonation, slightly oily on the finish, very refreshing. Some very light bitterness on the back of the tongue and some lingering grapefruit. Good beer.

Can from Secret Santa BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity!
Deep straw color with a huge bubbly white head. Big juicy citrus hop aroma with hints of cracker and bread with just a touch of sweet maltiness. Decent brew, but these session ipaís always feel too thin to me I just canít get into them.

Can thanks to Team florida. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is pine and grain. Medium mouth with light citrus and grass. Good.

Outstanding IPA at 4% ABV! IPA is my favorite style, and more than 7% ABV is the norm for my favorite brews, but Gateway was certainly worthy!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Extremely pale straw body with decent clarity; soapy, stark white head on top that dissipates quickly outward to form a bubbly collar. Aroma starts off with bigs notes of wet grass & garden weeds but opens up shortly with additional candied grapefruit, honey, & some sweet berry-like note that Iím having a hard time identifying. Almost perfume-ish but not pungent. Sweet & fruity. Maybe even passion fruit? Kind of tropical. Unique. Crisp flavor up front; grass, crackers, citrus peel, lemon zest, faint honey, & a little bit of that standout fruitiness lingering in the aftertaste. Once again, kind of hard to pinpoint but itís reminding me more & more of a mild passion fruit or tropical fruit with a bit more floralness to it... If that makes sense. Thin body, crisp, lightly grassy & faintly herbal finish. Not as robust as others, but thatís to be expected at only 4% ABV, right? Nice session ale.

One of the better session ipas I've had. Easy drinking and lite but not lacking flavor. Notes of tropical fruits and citrus that are rounded out with a mild hop flavor. Very drinkable beer.

Tap at Peteís Place. Yellowish amber pour with small head that fades to a thick ring. Aromas are grapefruit, pine, and grass. Tastes light and crisp. Mild grapefruit and pine hops. Hint of malt comes through. Thin to medium body. Solid session IPA.

Drank from can and poured to a shaker. Thin, light yellow with light head. Great session beer! I was leery of a 4% ABV beer, but was impressed. Crisp, hoppy flavor from start to finish.

Draft - Nice grapefruit and some sweet light malts. Pale gold with a nice white head. Fleshy grapefruit and a light bitterness balanced by sweetness. Light grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking and balanced,
