4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/21/2013. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop notes with a fair malt balance. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Moderate floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a decent malt balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected at 3.5%. Overall this is a highly excellent session IPA! Lots of hop flavor with nice complexity and robustness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, acquired via trade. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Huge weed and ganja aroma, almost oniony/garlicy, grass, and straw. Taste is weedy, bready, doughy, resin, pine needles, straw, and biscuit with a medium bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. The hops can be overbearing at times, but a decent session APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma has citrus, light resins, mild bitterness, grass, and some tropical fruit. Mouth feel coats well for the low abv. and the carbonation is good. Flavor is just right for the strength, pale malted core, citrus, some tropics, mild resins, and a clean finish. Extremely drinkable and very much enjoyed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Bottled 03/21/13. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Half-finger thin bubbly white head. Good thick rows of lace. Lighter body. Good crisp lighter carbonation, more dry in the finish. Very nice grassy hop aroma, nice earthy hop, some herbal.. Light bitter, light sweet, little zesty, bit of savory taste. One of the better satisfyingly hoppy session brews Iíve ever had.. Love that itís such a low ABV, too. Itís not unquestionably a "session brew" until itís below 4%

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a orange, tangerine, gold color with little head. Fresh, crisp, hoppy aroma. First you taste the hoppyness, lemon, maybe some pineapple, followed by the grassy taste, ended with the hoppy bitterness. Finish is dry, but overall a decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow-orange color with very little head. Potent aroma for such a light beer. Musty, dank hops. Picking up a lot of pineapple, grass, flowers, tropical fruit, lemons, and herbal hops. Taste is all fresh hops, just like the aroma. Mostly lemons and grass but thereís other hops too. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Very little malt taste. Smooth finish. Fairly thick body, surprising for such a light abv. Definitely one of the best session APAís or IPAís Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus with some slighy floral notes. Taste is hoppy, pineapple and some faint resin notes, just enough malt for it not being very unbalanced. Light palate, dry and refreshing with a mild bitter aftertaste. Extremely enjoyable for such a low abv, definitely one to keep on stock for the summer.
