3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle (Black Door, Helsini)
Initially a very tropical citrussy aroma, later some swimming pool minerals. Extremely citrussy in the taste, with the carbonation it’s almost lemonadey. Fairly watery palate, but full enough flavoured to be quite refreshing. Finish citrussy and littlde buttery. A simple golden ale, better than the blander examples from England, but still lacking something.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On the Eighth Day of Christmas the beer gods gave to me . . . a real "light" beer. Pours a golden color with a white foam head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and earthiness. Light sweet caramel taste with a mild but noticeable hop hit and grapefruit notes on the backend. Solid session IPA. Could have used a bit more hops.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - no BBE info found, at Black Door, 20141220) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grapefruit, citricness and mildly pine. Palate was rather light bodied with rather carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, pine, sweetness and bitterness. Afteraste was hoppy and bitter. A decent low ABV pale ale but too fizzy.

Bottle into a jar in a Chinese restaurant with a medieval themed kung fu movie on. One guess where I am. Citrus with light butter. Beery!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
a bright clear light gold color similar to a helles. the aroma is hop dankness, nice grassy tones with a spicy dill component, slight citrus tones, big cascade aromas. the beer is easy going, hop forward with a thirst quenching bitter dryness. low malt flavor allows the hops to shine, nice to have a big bold hop presence without to much bite or alcohol. Nice beer to drink any day of the week.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is by far one of the better session-style IPAs to hit the market lately that I’ve tasted. I sampled this treat in a bottle at the Chicago taproom. You could definitely tell that the body was a lot lighter than your typical IPA, but that is of course by design. There is still quite a bit of hops with a ton of delicious citrus flavors. There is also a hint of a piney, woody note in the taste. The finish was quite dry and spicy, loaded with hops. A well-done session beer!
