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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
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)
