3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can date: unknown
A: Pours a golden ale with near excellent clarity. Two fingers of fluffy white head falls in a few minutes leaving sticky lumpy lacing.
S: Citrus, fresh cut grass and a hint of cilantro. Light malt presence.
T: Again pretty grassy, but really refreshing on this front. Malts are a little oxidized (like they used older malts that had been sitting a little too long). Sweet and bitter, not much complexity on the hop profiles.
M: Medium body with high carb. Dry finish.
O: This is a sessionable ale, unfortunately, for this new substyle of IPA/ESB/Pale’s (session ales <5%ABV). This beer falls short of what I would consider the front runner in the style: 21st Amendment’s Bitter American.
Serving type: can

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smelled like cream pouring it out of the can, not a lot of aroma in the glass. Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a white head and good lacing. Nice creamy smooth mouthfeel with a light bitterness some floral tones a touch of resin. Gets a lot better as it warms.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can, from a beer store in MI. Enjoyed on a boat (yes I brought a glass). Mildly hazy golden yellow color. Good thin slightly off-white head. Some decent loose lace. Lighter body. Lighter, smooth, lightly crisp carbonation. Light texture. Nice grassy hop aroma. Lightly spicy hop. Toastier malt, light caramel. Good bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Tastes more malt forward for an ISA, but still an enjoyable hoppy session beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Undated 12 oz can poured into a Belgian snifter.
A: Pleasing apricot color; hazy with some suspended particles. Decent foamy white head soon settles to a durable top coat. Good lacing.
Nose: moderately strong, fruity hop presence with a nice apricot-peach-citrus palatte.
T: Solid malt base leaves this mildly bitter and, as intended, quite sessionable. Hop presence (level) of a typical APA. Again, nicely fruity. Excellent sweet/bitter balance. Fine dry hoppy finish.
M: medium-light body; dry finish.
O: excellent session beer for hop heads and APA lovers.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
More body and malt sweetness than most "session" IPAs or PAs. But still thin body. Mostly clear amber color. Hops were mostly herbal---but with some fruitiness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.8% at CBB. Great floral, citrus hop aroma with a pale gold color. Medium body, floral flavor then some malt and it ends with citrus lemon notes. My first sessionable IPA is pretty nice! I like the low ABV but it is a bit too bitter and slightly one dimensional... easy to drink though, I downed my half-pint in no time.

Hazy orange in color. 2 centimeters head. Citrus and pine flavors. Very drinkable. Definitely worth another try.
