2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours straw colour, white head. Smells hay like, with a little malt. Bitter (astringent) and flat flavour profile. There are some citrus notes but they are over powered by the bitterness, not much malt. Body is light, and very dry with a long lingering bitterness reminde of the last sip.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice hazy golden color with a fast dissipating white head. Appears to be quite carbonated. Aroma is slightly floral and slightly grainy. Taste up front is a little basic, hop flavours start to show as it warms up. Grainy and slight hops in the aftertaste. Palate is quite nice on this one, thankfully. Smooth, not overly carbonated, refreshing, too small on the flavor to be impressive, a few more hops needed.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber bottle. Pours a light amber with a moderate white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Taste: Malty, with some moderate flavoring hops that emerge as it warms in your month. Light bodied. Finish is sweet, with some citrus bitterness. Well, it would be a good ’pale ale’ but it doesn’t really have enough hops - aromatic, flavoring, bittering - to really be a ’session IPA’.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Modest bleach-white head and clear golden body. Aroma of sweet hops with a bit of a bite, okay complexity. Flavour is malty on the start with some hoppiness but not enough to carry it or make it sing. A bit weak on the mouthfeel. This could have been so much better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light pine with some light fruits as well. Taste is a mild pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation. A well crafted session brew which is an easy drinker and has some flavor.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dull light gold, aroma is fairly hoppy but they’re dull, cheesy hops, with only a little bit of bright pear and cantaloupe shining through. Mellow bitterness, a dull hop character and a bit of caramel in the body, it’s more or less in the style but the lack if brightness is a problem - you shouldn’t have to search around for a compelling element.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very good session IPA. Pours a nice light peach color. Tons of marshmallow head and lacing. Stunning for a session. Bready and dank aromas. Smooth drinking with some nice pine forward bitterness. Great session ale.
