Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks alright; light for an IPA though, even if it is a session; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells solid; Simcoe hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid, light mouthfeel. A solid session IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fully hazy pale amber golden with a large white head. Strong pine hop aroma, resinous, with grassy and citrus backings. Similar flavors, more grassy than citrusy, with just a hint of malt. A simple but good pale ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold color with a decent white long last head. The aroma is floral, some tropical fruit. Light malt malt flavor with plenty of grassy hop flavor. High hop bitterness that fits in well within the style. Not bad but not a fan of the hop character in the flavor.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A rich floral nose with some citrus. Smooth, light flavors, low bitterness, citrus, grapefruit especially, orange peel. Very nice. Both a big beer and isn’t meant to be.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from mix and match pack, Kalamazoo Michigan's drake party center. Golden yellow pour with half inch of bright white head. Lots of bubbles rising from the glass bottom, dense lacing covered the glass as the beer went down. Strong sweet floral hop aroma that's very skunky, honey scent too. Very very light, fluffy mouthfeel, a little watery. Pretty light taste too. Sweet Grapefruit-y and floral hop flavor, bitter malt that has a grapey flavor mixed with some burton saltiness. Overall more bitter than sweet. Light easy drinking session IPA. The skunky, grapiness is very unique.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tried to find what it smells.like, but couldn’t catch much. Maybe light pine and honey? Pours an orange/yellow golden color with a white head. Taste is a very light pale ale with some very clean hop taste which is slightly Spicket, pine, and a little sweet. Was hoping for a tad more on the hop profile but would still drink this on a hot day.

Smells of dry hops. Pours a clear light brown with a small head. Taste is bitter, very nice though. Palate is medium bodied. Overall a very balanced ipa. Great bitterness meets excellent maltyness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden orange color with a small fizzy head that quickly fades. Aromas are pine, lemons, light honey and a light musty herbal funk. Taste is very piney, citrusy and herbal. Very little malt taste but it’s a session IPA. Light sweetness, light bitterness. The hops are fresh and very nice. Thin body, fairly dry finish. Overall, very solid session IPA. Fresh hops and goes down easy. A small step below Founders All Day.
