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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Bright, vibrant orange & golden pastel body with a large bubbled head; easily a half-inch thick, lasting for over half the glass. Somewhat tropical aroma; mandarins, tangerines, light pineapple & mango perhaps. Pungent, earthy hope notes with a light oily resin. Very grassy. Watery body, spicy white pepper, herbal, & ashy hop notes up front with a backbone of tangerine & grapefruit peels; pretty bitter, front to back. Pith & rind rather than flesh. There’s a strong, "dirty" character that I get from the hops, like an intense earthiness that isn’t meshing perfectly well. Low alcohol makes this seem more perceivably bitter. Light body, dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was grassy, mandarin orange, artificial peach, and a touch of citrus. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, plus citrusy, and lightly resinous bitterness that lingered into the finish. Sessionably refreshing.

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 there’s 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 APA’s or IPA’s I’ve had.

On tap Birch & Barley Wash. DC. Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a finger of fluffy white head and decent retention. A lot of lemon zest and citrusy hop aroma on the nose. Taste has a really nice citrusy and grassy hop bitterness. A lot of lemon zest up front, followed up by the citrusy hops, and there is a hint of a grassy, earthy flavor in there as well. Light to moderate body, with a crisp, lively feel.

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.
