3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: May 23, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: Easing into the night after Shan, Mary, Ricah and the boys it the WineFest... APPEARANCE: First, the head: like overyeasted dough, the head rises like sea foam above the lip by a good inch! ( a prior bottle poured itself out the glass!); the ebbing tide leaves thick, clinging clumps of snow-white moss; the body is pale golden yellow with hefty floating sediment that settles at the glass’s bottom... AROMA: definite flowery hops and biscuit malts moderate each other; some lemon zest and citrus, but not as big as an IPA would normally be... PALATE: fizzy, lively, and thin early with a dry, reasonable aftertaste; medium-bodied...TASTE: light and crisp as promised; light bitterness; lemon zest dominates, but the overall flavor is not an IPA, in the American sense--more like an English IPA in its drinkability--more spritzy than strong, more crisp than crunchy... OVERALL: Drinking this as last year’s Hop Ticket Session IPA, the beer is (literally) a refreshing take on the genre; indeed, sessionable and refreshing...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tropical citrus hop aroma. Flavor is the same with a slight piney bitter finish. For a light beer there is a nice malt balance. Flavorful session IPA. In the ballpark of founders all day, but I think I like founders all day a touch more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall pure white, soapy head. Aroma of bright grassy and herbal hops with some pungent alcohol and grassy bitterness as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal flavours with a good kick of white pepper, herbs and hops as well, all on the finale. Overall, a fairly good light IPA, with some depth still coming out here. I sampled this twevle ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Manassas, Virginia on 28-March-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 27-April-2015.
