3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Total Wine and More in Claymont. Pours clear amber with a small off white head, glass bubbles, decent head retention. The aroma has a blend of caramel, pine, grass, quite hoppy, light citrus. The taste has a nice bitterness followed by a caramel balance, limited fruit in this guy. PRetty assertive but more on the APA than session IPA side.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange with a medium head and some spotty lacing on the glass.
The aroma is floral and a touch soapy, it’s got some graham cracker & some limestone. Session IPAs (to me) seem to display a very hop forward aroma, this one misses that stylistic mark without being unpleasant.
The flavor is really pretty nice, hop forward with a touch of sweetness up front and a dryness throughout the rest of the palate. It’s got a nice fruit forward happiness along with a pleasant but low level of bitterness. The beer has a tinge of minerallity throughout which is sort of cool.
The beer does a better job than many at not coming across thin at such a low ABV.
chill golden brew, would be chitl with drinking about 70 of them over the course of a day.

On tap at Harpers. This was kin of an oddball. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon zest, and grass. Pours light gold with a small head that lingers. Taste is guava, pineapple, grapefruit, grass, and a light malt finish. Clean but bitter. Very quaffable, just a little odd.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours light bodied amber orange. Ample, frothy head. Some light sediment floating around. Damp, resinous aroma with pale malt and leafy, bittering hops. Orange peel. Smooth and easy drinking. Light mouthfeel. Definitely more in line with the British style of ale. Malt bill is the dominant force in this brew, with dry and somewhat inconspicuous hop profile. Not bad but I prefer a more hop forward session IPA done the American way.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can from Crossroads. Poured a deep rusty sunburnt orange under a smaller foamy off white head with lots of large clinging bubbles. Aroma of juicy orange slices, citrus meat, dough, old lemon and a touch of wet pine. Body is medium with average carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is a bit weak. Notes of older citrus meat, some bad bread crutsts, hint of tea, dough and earth. Meh, there are way better lower ABV out there now-a-days.

Can. Pours a clear dark coppery co;or with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Light aroma of citrus, malt sweetness, a touch herbal with spice in the background.
