3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was out of the black label Session IPA package. Golden color with a short white head. Big fresh orange and pine nose. Lots of hop juice flavor with orange zest, pine, pineapple and a hit of pine in the finish. It is a bit thin, which is not unexpected from a session IPA. Full flavored hop beer that I"ll take at 4%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ The Bayou. Clear orange pour with a dense white head. Nice citrus and grass nose to this. Kind of toasty and bready as well. Fair amount of orange, some pine, and straw. Slight chalky bitterness on the finish. Sort of astringent but otherwise not too bad.

Aroma: passion fruit, mango, citrus.
Appearance: clear golden color, nice thin white head.
Taste: low bitterness, citrus, thin malty backbone, dry and watery.
Palate: low body and medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: Too watery session IPA, should be more fresh and bitter.

Tap. Dirty light copper brown. Light citrus and floral hop aromas. Flavor is similar, bitterness is there but it’s a really light session IPA overall. Lighter very slick body.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 Seriously one of the best session ipa out there. Sweet light malt full body for abv. Fruity light bitterness. Thin head. Good hop aroma. Nice bitter twang. How do you do this?
I had it in 2016 again. Still believe in this stuff! Wow. Lasting head. It just well is amazing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Murray location-pours lite orange with a small soapy white head. nose of lite hops, medicinal qualities and mineral aspects. Flavors are very lite hops, more like a hoppy golden ale with a touch of pale grains. hmmm not much going on here-wish they could tweek this recipe and make it a bit more hoppy. Could be sessionable however, not that interesting.

On draft at Salt Lake brew pub. Toasted/bready malts, citrus/pine/floral hop character. The hop profile is similar to their elephino. A tasty session IPA, I do find it a little one dimensional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap 7/21/10 in park city.
gold-ish color with a soft white head. foam paints the inside of the glass and ends up drippy.
the aroma and flavor are piney and somewhat spicy with notes of orange, flowers and pale malt. tasty, but it lacks depth or character.
the medium body is a bit watery but dry and slightly prickly with hops.
