4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very fresh, clean, refreshing, citrusy aroma. Itís golden color, perfectly clear, with nice head and lacing. In taste itís completely dry. There is no sweetness in it at all. Itís highly drinkable, very refreshing. It has nice bitter line, with some fruity notes in the end. Itís definitely great example of session IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light copper with little to no head. Aroma is peach and fried onions, which isnít exactly off-putting but isnít enticing either. Thereís actually a hint of crispy onions in the flavour too, which is bizarre, and a lot of malt as Iíve come to expect from Stone beers. Probably wouldnít try this again if Iím being honest.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Clear pale yellow, almost like a lager and stable, big, white head. Aroma of peach, pineapple, pine, very low onion (probably Mosaic), only hops. In taste low sweet, very dry and packed with hoppy flavours of pine, citrus, grapefruit. Strong and short bitterness, fizzy carbonation. Fantastic.

"I had avoided this one for awhile because, well session ipaís just really dosent sound right. I found a single so i tried it and.. Pours a perfectly clear light golden color with a one finger creamy white head. Big hops aroma with pineapple, honey, grapefruit, citrus peel, grass. Flavor is light malts stuck behind bright grassy hops with notes of citrus peel and pineapple throughout. Medium bitter. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation, finishing slightly dry. Probably the best of the session IPAs.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 0z. bottle into a pint glass
best by 09/06/2015
A: Cold gentle pour yields almost no head leaving a bubbly collar and leggy lace. Very clear brassy color with big lazy bubbles rising.
S: Soft citrus and pine scent. Almost chemical nose but very balanced including a bit of cracker malt.
T: Bitter and mostly piney with the citrus pith remaining in the background. Malt shows up briefly but is mostly overwhelmed by pine. Not bad.
M: Crisp and medium bodied with a good amount of bubbles.
O: Pretty average SIPA in my opinion. Not bad but way too expensive to buy regularly at $11/6 with no outstanding characteristics. Others are better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate light bread and roasted for the malt, moderate to heavy pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with faint dried fruit. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy light yellow amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then the long finish is moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Nicer smelling and better balanced in flavor than most Session IPAs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Globe. Pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy, tropical fruit aroma with some pine tar. Flavor is overly bitter, but not crazy. Some citrus and pine notes, nothing crazy. Thin almost fleeting mouthfeel on this one. Bitterness is up front harsh but doesnít linger.
