2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Matt sets out to make an easy drinking, low content IPA and, ouch, gets a 4 style score at RB. Soft floral aroma with some bread. It’s light enough you can actually smell the water. Light lager yellow. Weakly bitter taste, and even less malt. A well made lager has more presence than this. Very quaffable, but so is PBR. The lesson here is that rule number one for making a light IPA is: don’t.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours just slightly hazy, yellow-amber.
Almost no head,just a skim of white foam....
Minimal scent, orange and florals.
Taste is citrus, almost fruit- punchy with very little bitter.
Possibly the least hoppy IPA I’ve ever had.
The taste is pretty good, definitely sessionable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours translucent gold with white clingy head. Nose is pale malt, tropical fruity hops, and some florals. Tastes medium to light in palate density, not terribly complex, with hopcitrus, earthy pale malt, mild florals and peppery notes. Not as good as the white IPA, but I could drink 6 or 10 of these.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from BevMo. Very lightly hopped nose. Light and drinkable with a balanced malt hop attack. Both on the light side. Easy drinking on a hot summer day.

12oz bottle. Clear pale color, thin white head. Aroma of earth, nutty malt, some pine and citrus. Thin bodied. Easy to drink, Session Ale for sure. Tastes of pale malts, some sharp bitterness in the finish. More of an English Style IPA with American hops. (3392)

Bottle. Clear gold with a fluffy off white head. Grainy pale malty and floral, medium bitterness and low sweetness. Lighter earthy notes. Quite drinkable, but nothing memorable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Actually has a decent hop aroma, but relatively bland taste. Not a lot to the body, light hop finish. Golden color, pretty average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had it in the summer pack. Very middle of the road. Light hops and then some malts to balance it out. Nothing too special, but very sessionable
