3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, light yellow, frothy head. Medium to light body, strong pine, but not slick or overdone like many of the low alcohol IPA’s. Good for this style.

12 oz. bottle. Appearance: pale straw color, clear, small white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma: citrus and floral hops, light cereal. Palate: average carbonation, bitter lasting finish, sticky texture. Taste: very light front, builds in bitterness to fairly bitter finish. Overall, super drinkable, very light, still very flavorful.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 99 Bottles (Federal Way, WA). Huge cat pissy hop nose, grass, tar, sweat, and insecticide. Very pale straw color. Fruity initial with citrus (lemon) / a slight sourness intrudes in mid palate / light bitter finish. Thin-medium body. Pretty damn good. A session IPA with really jacked up aroma and refreshing flavors.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle with date code 316 3. Pretty fresh. Pours clear golden, pretty light-colored, with a white head. Lots of tropical fruits on the nose. Not at all grainy like other light pales. Flavor is crisp, clean, fruity and a nice dry finish follows. This is one of the ultimate session beers. Delicious.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, caramel, blah blah all the usual American stuff. Medium to light body, big aroma for what it is but that’s exactly what they wanted. Pretty nice.

Such a light looking beer with a little more surprise than it appears at first. When I first poured it I thought to me, oh, it looks like a bud light. But, when I smelled it, I knew right away that this was something more. Looks can be very deceiving. It has a sweet sweet citrus, floral and hoppy aroma. The first taste I took, I actually thought that I wasn’t going to enjoy it. After the second and third sip it started to grow on me. It has a mix of hops flavor, but not a lot of the bitter flavors that accompanies hoppy beers. Its a smooth, thirst quenching ale from the front all the way through the finish. It hits every aspect of your tongue all at once. Citrus, floral and hoppy flavors stay with you for a minuet after you swallow. Its a pretty good golden ale. Something that can relax you at the end of a long day, just as the description says. I could drink a few of these with no problem. I enjoyed this smooth ale, and I would recommend it to many.

Wow... Very strong and hoppy aroma with herbal, floral and weedy elements. Has the power of a double IPA. The flavor packs plenty of hops but is, of course, not as intense as the aroma suggests...not as bitter, having only a mild bitterness. Also a bit more fruity.
O: extraordinary version of a session ipa, with plenty of flavor and a remarkably full and strong aroma.
Best of this specific style (so far). Would earn a higher rating but for my preference for a fruitier hop mix.
