3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a bright yellowish color ale with a medium size white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus notes is really enticing with nice floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by nice citrus and grapefruit notes with some floral undertones and limited bitterness. There is some small dose of residual sugar notes that are noticeable with some non-descript malt notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Nice to see that you can get this nice hops profile without having too much alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Light piss color with low to moderate head. Just a beautiful aroma on this. Really psyched me up for the beer. Flavor was a bit of a letdown however. The hops are there, but since this is a much lighter beer, they don't really have anything else to interact with. A bit one note and thin, but certainly a decent beer and one of the better session IPAs I've had. I just wish it could have lived up to aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from bodega near Brian's in Brooklyn. Translucent orange-golden pour. Stone-style hoppy aroma - slightly floral, mostly resin and pine. Taste is the same - like a dialed back Stone IPA. Pine and resin hops, bright, a bit empty though. Some lingering hoppy bitterness. Not bad for a session IPA but a bit light.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy pale straw with a white head that gets flimsy. Pungent aromas: light caramel malt, huge resin and citrus hops, slight basement aromas, maybe even a little butterscotch, and some clove. Taste obviously leans towards bitter. Literally the first time I ever noticed umami. Palate starts clean and then gets bitter sticky. It’s different. I like it.
