3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a near clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of pine notes with a good amount of underlying grass and a sweet grain and hay backbone. Flavor begins with a light grassy note but quickly grows in intensity to a bitter pine note with only a slight grain backbone.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Grand Haven, MI). Pours a nice hazy golden straw hue, a mellow glow, a bit deadened with some lively bubbles. Cakey whitish head atop as a nice layer, some decent ring and cling sticks around. Decent lacing. Aromas are nice Simcoe and bitter hop elements, firm grapefruit meets lemon, touches of florals and bitter earth. A touch of juicy tropical fruit and gentle catty liveliness. Mellow bread, cereal grains. Initial is lighter bodied, mellow bitterness that starts to grow. Lemon, grapefruit, touch of soap hits the palate. Smaller beer offers some firm bitterness. Touches of grapefruit rind, a bit pithy with some florals, fuzzy earthy bitterness. Faint peach, bit of tropical fruit. Middle is clean, smaller with nice bitterness. Fresh hop element prevails into backend. Firm grapefruit juice, florals, that fruity bent still keeps a rockin’. Touches of gentle chalk, florals, bitter and faint melon. Finish is bitter, citrusy and fresh. Very nice stuff. To the point, bitter and fresh, malt bill never really gives any life except for a golden touch of bready/grainy malts to make you remember it’s a beer. Nice. Simcoe fairly fresh, hop elements really work well though the nose might be the weakness, it’s still solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
