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.

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.

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.

Clear copper with a nice foamy white head. Aroma of grass, tropical fruit, floral, some malt. Taste of upfront bitterness, grain, grass, nothing too strong, but very much not watered down. Well balanced and a joy to drink

Decent but not seeking again.
