3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear gold with small fluffy white head. Aroma is very pleasant tropical hops: mango, lychee, orange and lemon zest, some sweet malts. Taste is more standard and akin to the other major players in the relatively undifferentiated session IPA category: orange peel, herbs, big citrus pith bitterness, but pleasant and fresh tasting. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was on tap at Vermont Tap House.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a light yellow to orange color with a wisp of a light white little head even from the bar pour. It quickly dissipated and leaves no lacing.
The smell started off with sweet onion, light lemon, a graceful amount of orange, some mango all blending to a super nice bittersweet aroma.
The taste leaned closer to the sweet onion, allowing a nice bitterness strolling about on my tastebuds. Nice sweet onion aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation hits just right for the style and for me.
Overall, session IPA, hell yeah, I’d say very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Kihoskh @ home, 9/5-15.
App: Pale golden, slight haze with minimal particles, 2-3 finger dirt white head leaving minor stains.
Aroma: Juicy citric aroma with lime and carambola, grapefruit and some light bread. All about the hops.
Taste: same citric accentuation with grapefruit and carambola, quite dry but with just enough caramel sweetnes to keep it round and drinkable, some bread here too, medium bitterness zest.
Palate: medium to light, soft, slight oily.
Overall: nice and drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a nice looking thinner bodied orange under a smaller to average sized frothy white head. Aroma is DANK, notes of tropical fruits, apricot, peach skin, mango, wet bread. Flavor is similar but a step dowm on the dankness scale. Palate is medium to thiner with average tight bubbly carbonation. Definitely way beter than I was expecting, very crushable.

Super floral aroma. Citrus flavors mixed with tropical and bitter hops. Great combination extremely drinkable. Hits you first with grapefruit/lemon and follows through with lingering hop bite. No big malt flavor here and that's a good thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Sweet Cheeks BBQ, 9/18/15.
Small, foamy white head shows moderate to moderately-high retention. Clear golden liquid shows ample carbonation.
Peach, mango, lemon in the nose is quite enjoyable and a nice break from the endless permutations of citrus/pine hopped-ipas. Malt shows just a touch of cracker-like dryness/breadiness and no alcohol or flaws are noted.
Quite dry in the mouth, though not problematically so, and as the hops aren’t aggressively acidic, it’s quite appropriate. There is a bit of dullness/blandness from yeast or hop particulate (or it very well could be some influence from the toasted malt), cutting in to the otherwise bright, lively hop profile, but other than that, it’s a very mindlessly drinkable, enjoyable lil’ beer.
