3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can showing a generous white foam head and carbonation and slightly translucent neon yellow in color.
The nose shows clean notes of pine need and pineapple with hints of lemon zest.
The palate shows high carbonation and a light body but very thin on flavor. Showing subtle and slightly overshadowed flavors of pineapple and lemon. That being said, the flavors are very clean and simple to understand with light lemon tartness and lemon zesty bitterness on the finish. It’s a bit thin on flavor but being a session IPA it’s still pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Can from Joe, pours clearish golden color. Light lacing, aroma is much danker than taste with cheesy hop, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is same but lighter with some light malt but mostly hop funk. Nice

Type: 16-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Trader Joe’s in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: March 1, 2015
Consumed: March 1, 2015
Misc.: Canned on Jan. 9, 2015 at 11:25 a.m.
Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy, white head. Lots of slow-moving bubble streams coming up from the bottom. Above average, uneven, foamy lacing. Average retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Pleasant odors of sharp grapefruit, Citra, floral, Mosaic, Amarillo, tropical, tangerine and light pineapple. (Smell - 4.25)
Tasted a lot less flavorful than the nose. Definitely could tell it was a SIPA right away. Got Citra, Mosaic, tropical, vegetables, onion, light mango, faint grapefruit pulp and some watery pineapple. (Taste - 3.50)
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, watery, slightly bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38)
Not a fan of this one. This ranks at the bottom of the all the session IPA’s I’ve had (off the top of my head Day Time, Easy Jack, Go-To, All-Day, etc.). (Overall - 3.50)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big offwhite head. Hazy pale yellow body with lots of little
particles. Citric resiny malty aroma with honey notes. Dry
resiny citric floral taste with herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny citric dandelion aftertaste with
honey notes. Nice, drinkable, perhaps a little dry and austere,
but still nice. (0.568l can, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Strømmen.)
