3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 12 oz. Pours lightly foggy and yellow with a loose head that mostly disappears. Aroma is grainy toast, honey, resin, mint and light lemon zest. Flavors of mint, chive, lemon zest, toasted grain, dry grass and honey. Light-medium body is mostly balanced, but is a bit harsh in spots. Medium carbonation is nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle with new and nicer label.
Looks like a light IPA: it is light and pale relative to the average regular IPA. The smells suggests otherwise: there’s plenty of hop aroma and the bold flavor backs this up. Hops emphasize the herbal side but help carry some complexity.
O: actually succeeds as a session IPA rather than being, say, a renamed APA: it has plenty of hop aroma and flavor and he low ABV is not obvious. Not the hop mix I personally want to consume in large quantity but effects will differ across users.
