NOTES - one of the best session ipa’s oit there, IMO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Misty, medium oaken gold. Smallish eggshell head. Nice toasted toffee aroma with reasonable hops. Up front, there’s a threat of this being too acidic, but it rounds out nicely. Good flavoring hops, but not overly bitter. Easy drinking, very lightly sweet, pithy mouthfeel, a little citrus rind, not hugely esteric. No real flaws. Short, mildly bitter aftertaste, doesn’t cling. On tap, Whole Foods, Tallahassee.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - on tap. Sparkling medium - light golden pour, bubbly white head, light lacing. Light hint of spearmint and spruce in the aroma. Refreshing, crisp flavor with light bitter citrus notes, a touch of spearmint spiciness and a faint whisper of caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel doesn’t have that ’breathless’ quality to it that some low ABV session IPAS have - this is nice and crisp.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a light amber color with aromas of fresh cut grass, light hops, a touch of citrus and some light malt. Flavors were grass, and some hay with some light citrus peaking through, not overly bad, just not my go to, would work for me in a pinch.
