4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a nice head that soon settled. Good clear amber color. Hoppy malty aroma that is true to style. Good palate. Flavor is good except for hint of solvent. Finishes like flavor in the solvent thing is still there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, orange, biscuit, bread, hints of grain, touch of a slight bit of spice note as well. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, orange, hints of herbal notes as well, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Not bad.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From bottle then in a glass. Cloudy. So, what’s all this IPA thing in a lighter ABV beer. Why would you want rude IPA in a light beer anyhow? WTF? All on style for an IPA except the buzz. Perhaps if you love IPA resin, mouth coating, bitter, beer with a big dull hop aroma. One nice thing about this IPA, none of that B/O perfumy olfactory. Well, at least it does have some slight cutting CO2.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a plastic sampler glass. The aroma starts out slightly skunky but then turns more herbal with a light grain and some grapefruit. It pours a dull, clear copper orange color with lots of soft, white head. Quite a bit of it is retained - a good covering remains throughout the drink - with lots of solid lacing. The taste is a dulled medium high bitter with a light medium sweetness. The dry, thin texture has a creamy carbonation. The medium full body finishes with caramel, toasted bread crust, and a light grapefruit peel. The aftertaste is fairly potent, dry, and lingering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Brunzies. Nice floral hop aroma, a bit of apricot and grapefruit, sweet and sticky. Medium dull amber clear with slight haze, topped with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with big hop flavors, sweet malt, ozone bite and nice bitterness. Medium bitter finish with lingering hop flavor and some residual sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, light coppery body with a near white head, small in stature.
Smell: Bready pale malts with a bit of sugar and spice. Lightly floral, melon-scented hops with a sliver of fresh, glistening herb.
Taste: The Extended Play India-Style Session Ale kicks off with pale malts housing a bready quality and restrained sweetness. Floral, fruity hops with a little green herbal hint. Subtly bitter. Remains a bit bready for the softly bittersweet, smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Agreeably decent and would have no reservations about having another.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A totally light touch on the hops from a brewery that excels at malt-heavy beverages. Great for a summer day (or night). You’ll still get that IPA snap on the tongue, but it doesn’t last as long nor weigh you down. Very solid for the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body. Foamy, respectable off-white head. Some pleasant delicate tropical grapefruit tinges in the aroma. I wasn’t that impressed the first time I had it, but I am really digging it this time around, and think it would hold up quite well against All Day in a blind tasting. Lemony hop bite sticks with you. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Summerfest. The lines for this beer were LONG indeeed. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thin foamy head. Light aromas of orange, tangerine, some grassy hops and some malt. Taste is dry & mineral-like with piney hops and citrus definitely showing their face. Very drinkable (9) with no lingering bitternes to speak of.
