4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Scion restaurant in Silver Spring, MD.
Clear, bright yellow with an off-white head and fair to good lacing.
Aroma of herbal and citric hops, bread and toast.
Taste of citrus (mainly sweet lemon and tangerine), herbal hops, white bread, light fruit and toast.
Medium body and medium/low carbonization.
While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, it is pleasant and enjoyable. You could easily order this beer all evening and enjoy the last one as much as the first. Perhaps, that in itself is exceptional. I'm more of a two and done person, but it's certainly nice to see that tasty session brews are becoming more widely available.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate floral hop aroma, pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. The flavor is predominantly hops, with spicy notes and a long bitter finish. Very light bodied and easy drinking. Not a bad beer, but I would much rather reach for a real IPA.

Mild hop aroma. Balanced citrus and resin hops on the palate with a toast, bread, and slightly caramel malt backbone. Nice session beer for when you want some hops in the mix.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from summer selections pack into snifter glass, clear golden color with slightest amber hue and bright white head. Aroma of grapefruity/lemon hops and faint grass. Taste adds notes of earthy/piney hop bitterness, orange peel and biscuit. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, astringent with bitter hoppy finish. It’s powerful for being so light bodied, good and obviously sessionable!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear bright yellow with sparse sediment floating around in it. Very bubbly and has a white fizzy head that quickly fizzes down to lacing. Smells light, grapefruit pineapple lemon flavors shine bright and no malt. These flavors shine through in the taste, I would definitely say it is bright and crisp as described. Definitely packs a hop punch but has no malt and makes this beer as incomplete as any other session IPA. The finish fades out bitter and leaves you wanting more, but I mean more out of this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, tropical fruits,grapefruit, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent dull yellow/gold with some sediment that float to the bottom of the glass. It has a two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There are some soapy rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with starts with a quick dose of light sweet citrus with a hint of tropical fruit. The finish has moderate grapefruit, light dank flavors, faint lemon peel, and a touch of grass/straw. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I really dig Session IPAs and this is very tasty. I’d like to see this in its own 6-pack.
