Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours light orange gold witha a slight creamy white head. Aroma is mostly malt and cooked fruit. Med minus body. Flavor is light malt and light citrus. It is hoppy. It’s decently bitter. Beats the crap out of BL fer sure. My nomination for a day at the lake.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bitter herbal hops and toasted malts. The taste is bitter herbal hops, faint apple and not much else. Thin-medium bodied. Meh.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Orange juice and pine/orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Watery orange juice and lightly bitter pine/citrus peel flavor. Very light body. Bland and unexciting.

Pours clear golden with a clinging off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a thin pale malt flavor with light hop bitterness. Yes, it’s an ok session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smell is a little metalic. Nice head on a clear pale lager lookin thing. Taste is up there as far as hoppiness goes but the mild alky attitude makes it easiier to like for this lager lover. Good smooth co2 makes this easier to enjoy. Yes, hop bitterness builds thru the session and continues to medim IPA levels. Very acceptable beer that cariies true ipa flavor without the magnification factor on the attitude. I probably would not clasify this as a terribly on style ipa.

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Super clean, light suspended dust. Nose is super grainy and vegetal. I honestly did not expect it to be this bad. Flavor is similar but you can actually taste a little bit of centennial hop and that signature saranac metallic yeast. Ugh.
