3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can poured into a Stone IPA stemmed glass. At first, a grapefruit citrus and pine note hit the nose in strength, and, as the head settles, aromas of toffee and toast with a touch of lime / tonic water poke through. Near the middle of the glass, as it warms up some, the toast disappears and a light spice character emerges with a juicy, tropical (passion fruit) note. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a soft, rocky white head of varying bubble sizes. It retains well with a decent layer of head remaining, with only a couple small breaks, and leaves an ok amount of messy lace. The taste is a medium / medium-high bitterness with a medium sweetness, and a very light sour note. By mid bottle, the bitterness mellows out some and the sweet malts are a bit stronger; the sour note also disappears. There’s lots of lightly fizzy carbonation giving the otherwise watery texture a touch of creaminess. It’s a medium bodied beer that finishes with a pine and grass character as well as a resin mouthfeel. By mid bottle, more caramel and passion-fruit juiciness show up, but the finish remains mostly dry and clean. The aftertaste is fairly short and mellow with a lime and tonic water characters and a touch of pine and/or grass.

Draft at Neons. Pours a clear, bright pale gold with a small white head that leaves lace streaks. Aroma of lemon, grass, pale malts, light florals, passion fruit, and bubblegum. Flavor of lemon, pale and bready malts, grass, and a splash of passion fruit. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Nice APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a very clear and a very bright yellow colored body with fast rising carbonation seen, one finger white head quickly dies and leaves some clingy lacing.
The smell has some straight up piney, citrus, hops with some subdued malts.
The taste has some sweet yet bitter and almost peppery at different times, dry sweet aftertaste and a quick bitter finish.
The palate is light, somewhat sessionable, adequately carbonated and also is good for me.
Overall, this is a good session APA that is flavorful.
