3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery, pours an unclear amber orange with a nice white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma has a decent amount of hops and citrus on the nose, a little bit of fruit as well, the flavor has a slight hop front end with a smooth finish, for 4% it’s pretty nice but it doesn’t have the overall punch of a normal IPA, good for what it is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Urban Chestnut. Session IPA. Pours pale and hazed with a white head. Nose is grainy with a moderate hop note. Citrus and hairspray. On tasting, grainy, medium bitterness and grassy. Lacks IPA character overall. Needs more clean hops. Meh.

growler... not a big fan of this, bright gold with good carbonation... the nose has a weird bo note that thankfully doesn’t come through on the taste, even though it doesn’t taste great, ok

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. Coppery golden with a smallish off white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is very pleasant with citrus hops leading. The flavor is even nicer. Again, citrusy hops. Applesauce, caramel, grain, and a hint of spice. The hops are both US and European, probably Hallertau. There is a bit of grass. The hops light up the tongue nicely. I love the
Ow ABV. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap. notes of bitter grass and juicy grapefruit, with a touch of orange and dry herbs. would prefer a bit more balance to session this all night, as it is, it is a bit too abrasively bitter. but still quite enjoyable to drink, and surely enjoyed the glass of this i had. clean, well made, solid beer. happy to see more session ipas.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap-pours cloudy orange w,ith quite a bit of haze and a soapy white head with some decent lacing. sweet grainy nose of popcorn (not diacytl) earthy hops, grains and sweet malt (carmel?) . doesnt come across as an ipa to me, but more ofa pale ale. not much hops really hence why i dont think its an ipa. good for what it is. hard to describe.
