Tap @Union Jacks pale yellow color with thin white head. Some hop aroma but not super strong. A bit of earthiness - maybe some Saaz in here? Clean, crisp flavor - sharp and refreshing. What a session beer should be. Good alternative to Founders All Day.

HIGHB4LL (751) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, clear, straw color, ok lacing. Aroma: light caramel, pine, light floral. Palate: light body, bitter finish, slightly thin texture, average carbonation. Taste: little bit of caramel sweetness into a pretty bitter pine burst that lasts a while. Overall, pretty bitter for a session, but still super drinkable and enjoyable.

Bottle from Julio’s. A light grassy yellow color with GREAT aroma of citrus, herbs and spice. Well balance. Somewhat grassy, bitter finish. Decent.

SPDickerman (1012) - Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. Smells strongly of grapefruit. Taste is bitter grapefruit. Light-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Victory Anniversary 19 Ale finishes with a lingering soft bitterness.

Bitter top note. Great aroma. Slight bite but not over powering. Overall a solid high ranking IPA.

r464 (1956) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2015
A bit dirty and earthy, bitter and hoppy. More bitterness and punch than you would expect from the ABV number. As a session ale I would give it some consideration.

Christpuncher (1560) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Hoppy start with a strong malty backbone. Very light in flavor and easy to drink because of the low alcohol content. Smells hoppy and pours light orange in color. Had at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1620) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Aroma: Pineapple juice, herbaceousness, light lemon, light cereal. Appearance: Mostly still gold with a ring of white head. Flavor: Hops kinda sit on the tongue throughout; cereal takes on a slightly toasted quality; slightly floral finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A little plain Jane; nothing I’d seek out again.

Ernest (6484) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon oil), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat), with notes of cheese rind, rubber. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Wow, this is just terrible...dirty nose and aftertaste, very thin and watery. Completely phoned in, it would seem. Shameful.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.09 Purchased: Feb. 16, 2015 Consumed: Feb. 16, 2015 Misc.: Enjoy by June 5, 2015 at 10:25 p.m. Poured a golden, yellow, pale, clear color with two fingers of white, rocky head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top. (Sight - 3.38) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops, much more potent than a session IPA. Got lime, Citra hops, mango, bitter nectarine rind, resin hops, sugary iced tea, light rye hops, Columbus hops, pine and leathery notes. (Smell - 3.75) Taste wasn’t as appealing as the nose. Got mango, resin hops, vegetables, Citra hops, nectarine rind, lime zest, pine, tropical hops and faint rye hops. (Taste - 3.38) Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, rather skunky finish. (Feel - 3.25) This was not a very good session IPA. I will not have it again. (Overall - 3.25) 3.42 78 B-
