2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Some light citrus, lemon aroma. Kinda skunky flavor, maybe my sample has gone off. It tastes OK at first, then something goes wrong. The bitterness is not appealing, a strange mix of flavors.

Bottle. Good session IPA, avoids the excessive pine in many, providing a floral hop, light body, moderate finish.

Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14.
Lightly hazed golden with moderate off white spotting.
Nose is orange pith, straw, toasted malts.
Taste comprises light citric tinges, more orange pith, straw, light hop presence.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with some juicy hop bitterness.
Ok SIPA but pretty middle of the road for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 5/5/14. Almost clear golden pour with an amber note. Very good head, lacing and retention. The nose is mostly tropical, although there are hints of grapefruit, over a biscuit sweetness. Heavy light body with only a hint of smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. Very nice balanced flavor profile with a complex mix of hop flavors, moderate bittering and subtle sweetness. It begins with the tropicals, flows to mild grapefruit rind bitterness and a light biscuit sweetness is noted underneath. The finish leaves you with a pleasant rind like bitterness. An outstanding flavorful session IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Pours a light golden color with generous cream-colored head. Slightly grainy and citrusy aroma. Citrusy and grassy flavor. Light bodied with slightly bitter finish. Quite drinkable. Quaffable on a hot summer day, but not among the best of this style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
"Not sure what these dwarf hops are that they used in this brew, but I admit that I expected more. Thin feel is ok if the flavor and aroma are anything but...but while the aroma and flavor were pleasing enough, everything came across as a little weak. Grassy hops and little citrus or anything else besides a light biscuit malt. It is a session beer as described, but hefty hop punch? Not so much. I’ll enjoy my other 2 from the mixer and then be done with this. Surprisingly, there are FAR better session IPAs out there

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows spicy and herbal hops in abundance. Some floral and grassy note too. A hint of straw underneath is the only sign of malt.
Similar flavours: floral, spicy and grassy hops leap out with some light clean malt revealed later followed by a very refreshing bitter finish.
Carbonation is too aggressive.
