4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pale gold with a small to medium white head. Aroma is citrus, herbal and floral...smells great. Taste is sweet with a big dose of hoppy bitterness up front that slowly mellows. Light bodied with a smooth texture. A very solid, may I say exceptional Session IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear light gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up soft and sweetened citrus and mango with just a hint of hoppy bittering notes and slightly grainy maltiness. The taste has pleasing hoppiness and body for the ABV where I’m getting a great mix of resiny bitter citrus hops and juicy citrusy and mango like hop flavor. Nice! Great warm weather brew. I can do this again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Canals Brick. Poured a clear thinner body of bright straw yellow with some visible particles floating around all under an average sized fluffy bright white head. Aroma is soapy and fruity, tropical fruits, hint of sour lemon and grain. Good body overall, mouthfeel is slightly watery but aggressive carbonation offsets that along with a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of old citrus, toast, grains, lime rind, hop leaves. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a golden yellow color with aromas of freshness, hops, citrus, light pine, and some light peach. Flavors follow suit, nice hop flavor with a touch of malt made this crushable and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a real nice session IPA, it delivers pretty much exactly what you want which is lots of hops w/ low alcohol. It is clear pilsner golden in the glass with a head of foamy white bubbles. It’s nose is vibrant and peachy. I hate guessing hops since I am always wrong but I would guess a lot of citra was used. No matter what they chose though, it smells fresh and good. Taste is nice and bitter too and crisply dry. The carbonation is pretty extreme here which works well enough but probably should be toned down a hair for optimum drinkability. I have always been a fan of this style and this is a good one, though maybe not the best.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy white head. Aroma is fruity and citrus hops, a little toast and oily grain. Flavor is toast and biscuit up front, then sharp citrus hops, floral hops, citrus oils, toast, a little bread, oily grain and mineral notes. Light body, dry, sharp hop oil acidity, medium to heavy, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dry, slightly astringent finish. Good stuff, a little oily tasting. The carbonation is over the top.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (drink by 10/15). Pours a slightly hazy straw with a nice head. Killer fruity hop nose. Tastes good but typical of the style the aroma is more impressive. Drinks a bit thin and finishes somewhat bitter but not at all unpleasant. My problems here are more with the style than the beer, this is pretty well done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet, hoppy, citrus aroma. Flavor is mild. Upfront hops, mid citrus fruit and flowery hops, finish with some yeast. I was not expecting the yeast. Clean and smooth.
