3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a sampler. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head that leaves streaks of lace in the glass. Nice, clean aroma - grass, herbs, lemon, pale malts, straw, florals. The flavor matches the aroma, but doesnít quite possess the same pop. Spice on the finish. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a crisp, clean, dry mouthfeel. Good session IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The smell is hoppy but I get more of a grainy sweet malt aroma.
The taste follows the nose and I have to say that this session IPA has more malt character than most Iíve tried. Either thatís the way it was intended or the can I have is older than fresh.
On the heavy side of light bodied, nice carbonation, very good mouthfeel.
Big thanks to Trent for sending this my way!

On tap, pale golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is watery hops and mild malts. Flavor is club soda with a touch of hops. Way too thin.

12 oz bottle from the Binnys South Loop Singles Rack (Chicago, IL). Oddly, itís taken me some time to get this and rate it. Pours a nice glowing golden hue, a firmer haziness with gentle dulled orange glow. Very bubbly body with mellow cakey white head. A nice layer sits atop, dies to a film and laces ok. Aromas throw gentle grapefruit rind and juice, touches of lemon and earthy green leafy bitter hops. Touches of bread, gentle fruit and grainy malts. A bit floral, faint waft of lemon cookies. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some nice pithy citrus and rind elements give some bitterness. Touches of citrus juice, a bit of bread. Mellow grainy and bready malts into the middle show some base. Clean, lighter. The backend brings back a firmer floral bitterness, touches of earth and bitter citrus rind. Cleaner, but still fairly hoppy and poignant even with some age on it. A bit bready, gentle spice and fizziness. Finish is dry, a touch powdery and floral. Solid Session IPA. Lacks pop and character but is clean and well made.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pint at Half Moon. Looks solid; a little undercarbonated though. A transparent light gold with bubbly white lacing. Smells solid; nicely hopped with a very light malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, but less robust. Or it could be the undercarbonation making it seem a bit stale. A decent SIPA, but could be much better with some additional carbonation.
Earlier Rating: 5/31/2013 Total Score: 3.4
Looks alright; light for an APA though. A transparent light gold with ample fluffy white head. Smells solid; bitter hops with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with. An average mouthfeel. Not bad.

12oz bottle from jcwatts. Poured a hazy light gold body with a slightly smaller foamy bright white head. Aroma of tangerine, limons, honey topped bread, definitely sweeter. Body is a little to carbonated, medium overall and a bitter dry finish. Flavor is grains, lime rind, some tangerine, crusts, hop cones. Nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a nice lower gravity hoppy beer. It is cloudy orange yellow in the glass w/ a small, foamy but long lasting head. This has a whole lot of grapefruit in the nose and is a bit hempy as well. Taste here is just a touch sweet and piny, resiny hops make this drink much bigger than it actually is. It finishes a w/ a firm citrus rind bitterness which rounds things out nicely. I might call this more of a straight up APA than a session IPA due to its fuller body and slight sweetness but it is a rather good beer either way.
