3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
HopCat in East Lansing. This beer is surprising. Shorts got it right with this 3.5% session. The appearance is a very light gold, and the aroma is surprisingly deep. A good amount of citrus and a large amount of hops seem present, though I don’t know of this is the case. The taste is just as it smells. A bit citrusy and very hoppy. The finish is dry, but hardly lingers.

Bottle, pours a hazy orange with white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops. Taste is grassy and earthy as well, with a decent amount of bitterness. A good amount of taste given the low abv.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden orange color with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbal, lemon, pine and grass. Nice and well balanced aromas and taste of grapefruit, herbal, pine, grass, bread, earth, and spiciness. A good bitterness on the finish. Nice session IPA.

Not sure why this is so widely appreciated; I found it to be watered down with grassy / piney hops and a weird marshmallowy taste. This beers palate just couldn’t seem to agree and provided a clash of flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub...Had this a while back at Short’s and while this was very tasty with lots of fresh green hop notes; it seemed rather thin compared to the rest of the Short’s offerings. Lo & behold it is a session beer with low ABV which explains alot. In that light, this is a truly fantastic session beer!

Extra tossed in on a recent trade. Wow this one surprised me. Pours a nice hazy orange with a decent head that leaves some lacing as it goes down. Smell is peaches and tropical fruit... Really nice. Taste again follows with the peaches and slight citrus. Palate is super clean and slightly dry. Great sessionable IPA.

Trade with Silphium. Session IPAs always raises questions with me. This one have a great hoppiness and bitterness. Balanced sweetness in the nose, but not in the mouth. Overall lacks body, but I get the concept on this one and like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Prolonged Enjoyment pours a cloudy tangerine orange with a small off-white head that leaves minimal lacing. The aroma is citrus and the flavor is equally citrus. Overall this is a decent beer, especially for a session beer.

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.
