2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dull orange, well over - carbonated. Overflows when cap is removed, can only pour half the bottle. Bottle shows one year since creation, bought last week. Aroma is weak, and of standard hops with low malt. Light malt flavor with a dust of hops. Slight bitter and dry aftertaste with sticky mouthfeel. Advertisement on bottle says "session India Pale Ale". Seems to mean light/weak.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the shelves of Tipples. A little surprised this was still in the fridge, as it has a bottling date of 12/3/13 and I grabbed it today (8/16/14). Oh well. Pours murky copper orange color with a very small ring of white head. Aroma is straight malts and some stale hops, bready and caramelly. Flavor is watered down bready malts, light bitter, sticky and sweet. Light to medium bodied with medium low carbonation. Meh. Need to try it fresh.

Flavor has a solid citrus bitter profile, some grassy notes, a touch of biscuit-like maltiness. Solid flavor for the low ABV. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a rich orange (with a slight tint of red to it) with a small off-white head, and the aroma blends diacetyl with piney and citrus hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sour, and slightly sweet, and the palate fuses a sticky texture, medium-full body, soft carbonation, and slightly bitter finish that causes the mouth to pucker slightly. Overall, the flavors don’t quite blend as well as they could, and the palate doesn’t do much to complement what flavor is there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours kind of an orange color with a big fluffy off white head and lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma has a bit of citrus, melon, and clean socks. The malt character is lightly caramely.
The flavor is very grassy with a touch of minerallity. The malt really doesn’t come through as a pleasant note here, sort of flabby and a touch sweet & caramelly. The hops are certainly the dominant character of the beer & there is that nice low bitterness that’s the hallmark of the style. But the hop character seems one noted and not very bright at all...
The beer is a touch on the thin side without much prickly carbonation to carry it well across the palate.
Cool bottle though!
