5.6% is supposed to be a session?! Bottle. Nose is bright and fruity, a little lychee in with the grapefruit and rising pine, firm caramel base. Dark amber pour heading toward brown with a rocky beige head. Watery-light body, light bitterness with a hint of yeast, hops are much diminished, papery semi-dry with a little rind and wood, sunny leafy green and caramel backed way off (and lightly toasted). Don’t like the crystal, like the Munich. Bit of a disappointment overall, but for mildness of flavor, it does fit the session bill.

Pours amber with hardly any head from bottle. Honey malty taste. Earthy aroma. Kind of like an octoberfest. Don't get the hops much. Average

So, a beer near 6% is a session, heheheh. Permeating aroma. As soon as I tasted it I knew it was more than 6%. Big strong rude initial dull hop bite knocks my taste buds back like strong wind on a field of wheat. Uhg Uhg Ugly whitch with a brass brazeer. Does surprizingly have some sizzle, but still mouth coating. Shade of chewing old inner tube rock my world. Finish nags like a older sister who is really pissed off at you. Lots of unique difficult hops in this breathtaking brew, wew. Terribly on style, could pas for a double IPA - session it is not. Big thanks to nike for ripping up my lager loven palate just one more bitter ass time. Is it possible this rating is in the wrong place? Styled an APA - HAH HAH!! Humor totally makes my day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark orange with a nice white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is floral hops with some bread and caramel. Taste is earthy, bread, some caramel sweetness, and a little floral and grass. Hint of bitterness. Somewhat dry on the palate. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper in color with a bubbly off-white head that faded quickly. Had a bit of a wet hop aroma. Very malty aroma and flavor for a pale ale. I’m used to more hop presence in an APA but this was refreshingly different. Malty sweet flavor with a clean finish. Truly a session beer.

12oz bottle, not your typical APA. Amber pour, good foam, hoppy aroma...nice. Taste of hops, with strong malt backbone, and dry hoped taste. Light bodied, not as hoppy as most APA, but enjoyable taste. Worth the try, not willing to buy a case of it though.
