3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the tap into a Rogue pint glass.
The color is clear orange/gold with a foamy white head and some nice lacing.
The smell is bright hops with some fresh hop aroma. Fresh cut grass is in the nose with a tangerine aroma sweetening things up and making it citrus smelling.
The taste is nice piney hops with sweet light malty goodness. A nice citrus flavor with hints of tangerine and tangy grapefruit. Much like Enjoy By IPA, the flavor has that same earthy grass taste.
The feel is light bodied and goes pretty damn easy. A tasty beer in a light session-able package. Some flavor reminiscent of bigger IPAs but has lightness that is very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle gift for christmas. Lots of fresh hop in the aroma. Flavor is generally sweet, some citrus. Itís a spritzy beer--a little too much. But impressive flavor for a lighter beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a thin, poorly retained, minimal, white head, over a hazy, yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is slightly vegetal, with pine, resin, slight sulfur, balance to the hops.....taste is light cereal, slight sulfur, garlic hints, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body. The service of this beer may have been flawed. The vegetal, sulfur and garlic notes were quite unpleasant. Were the lines clean? Stone does not make this off a beer. BJCP 6/2/10/3/6

355ml bottle at home. Pours clear pale gold, white head, nice lacing. Big resinous hop aromas, skunky, some floral notes. Taste is big bitterness, skunky hops. No real malt until right at the end. Thin body, bitter finish. Good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.60):
Iíve no complaints about this beer at all, itís definitely one of the better session IPAís Iíve tried and is quite possibly the best given that it pretty much tastes like a good, traditional American IPA albeit with a lower alcohol content. It has plenty of bitterness and hops, a solid malt base and an excellent balance; whatís not to like?

Bottle. Given that this is sold as a session IPA it is not too bad. Decent taste at a lower ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Light golden orange coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is nice dank citrus, floral notes. Light chive, spring onion on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of crisp base grain, highish carbonation, earthy slightly dank citrus on the flavour as well. Palate is semi crisp with a dry finish. Uber drinkable. Very tasty for the abv. Suburb beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Lovely aroma of mango, botanical hints, peanuts and pineapple jelly. Flavour of pine, mint and grapefruit. Thin body with an oily texture. Fizzy. A 4.5% ABV hop bomb. Reminds me of BrewDogís Dead Pony Club.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Letís see how the arrogant ones deliver a sesh IPA. Itís got a nifty pour, a clear yellow body with a creamy head. The aroma is zest, pip, and grapefruit... mayhaps with a touch of the litter box. The malt appears in the flavor as watery grain. The hops come across as in the nose, a bit more catty, and the bitterness level is moderate, although it does linger for quite a while. Dry finish. Itís okay.
