Bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow , medium white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose is light citrus, hay, see faint. Mouth is light bodied, pale malt, slight bitterness, lemongrass. Pretty average session beer from a brewery I typically expect greatness from. Hopefully 20th is a more remarkable anniversary.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 3/15/2015
Aroma: Lighter aroma, some grapefruit/tropical hops, resiny notes, and a little onion
Appearance: It is clear gold in color, with a white head and some solid lace
Flavor: This one has a pretty good hop profile, leaning bitter, and just lightly sweet
Palate: It is light bodied and easy drinking, with a soft feel, and a clean, dry finish
Pretty solid Session IPA, but not one of the better ones in the style. Drinkable beer overall though. You could certainly do worse than to take down a few of these in a session.

Clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is very slight hops. Flavor is light with some crisp bitter hops. Clean finish, perhaps a bit too light, even for a session IPA.
