3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can served in a silipint.
Pours with a towering foamy head that has very good retention. The head becomes nicely creamy after it settles a bit. Clear medium amber. Gobs of sticky lacing get left on the glass
Near medium body is a tad thin. Medium+ but soft carbonation. Very creamy feel for style.
This very easy drinking "session" IPA packs a fair amount of hop aroma and flavor, but is only mildly bitter and relatively low ABV. Fruity with both citrus and tropical notes. Also a touch floral and, in tasting, herbal. Excellent sweet/bitter balance from start to finish.

Can sample at Canvitational. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at GTMW 2013. One of my favorite new styles, the session IPA. This one in particular pours a nice golden color with a white head. Aroma has lots of bright citrus and floral hop overtunes, maybe a hint of pale malt. Flavor is light, grassy and citrus bitterness balanced with a mild pale malt and bready sweetness. Thin bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean. Nice. I will revisit.

From a 12 oz can shared at home. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Floral hop nose. Flavors of light citrus flavors. Light to moderate mouthfeel. Sessionable but not too exciting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty decent can o’ IPA though not the freshest you can get it, I’m sure. Pours cloudy orange with decent head. Piney hops. There’s more on nose with this than there is in the finish which makes for a good session ale. Average carbonation. Can from Finger Lakes Bevvie center.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, BBOTMC. Clear dark golden with white head. Some soap, musk and faint cinnamon aroma, bitter, grainy undertones and malty taste. Light body, bitter, malty finish. Not IPA, but good nevertheless.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear ruddy gold color with a long-lasting white head that never quite disappears, sheets of lace. Taste is only two things: sweet malt and citrus hops. Both take their share, providing a well-balanced, but simple, brew. Does exactly what it proposes - a good full-tasting session hopped brew. Recommended.
