3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop and soft malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend as a session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Pint House during a tap takeover. Cloudy dark golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

355ml bottle. For once I could appreciate an upland ipa. This one works as a sessioner.

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 doesn’t quite possess the same pop. Spice on the finish. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a crisp, clean, dry mouthfeel. Good session IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Bottled May 2013. Clear golden color. Good one-finger thick kind of pillowy white head. Splotchy lace. Lighter body. Smooth, soft lighter carbonation. Some grassy, lightly lemon-citrusy hops. Light wheaty, bready malt. Light bitter taste, light sweet. Satisfying session ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from the Binnys South Loop Singles Rack (Chicago, IL). Oddly, it’s 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.
