Bottle from February 2013 shared thanks to Tim and Rachel. Pours a hazy gold with bubbly white head. Aroma of bready grain and floral grassy hops. Taste follows, nice balance, definitely sessionable, slight bitterness on the back end.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat hazy straw yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is light hops with a tiny amount of citrus. Flavor is rounded hoppiness with a light pine finish. Could use a little more malt to balance and create a fuller body. Hops are actually fairly faint for an IPA and it comes off mildly watery. It also has an odd smokey finish as well. Not bad, definitely sessionable, but doesn’t leave a huge impression.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew pours a cloudy dark amber color with a medium foamy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Stag’s Head, Manhattan NY on 2nd July 2013. Very hazy gold with off-white film top and almost no lacing. Biscuity malts and cheesy yeasts in aroma. Very hoppy in mouth: grapefruit, spice and tangerine seltzer, with a cookies’n’creme malty background. Great bundle of flavour. Dry hoppy finish with slight saltiness. Zingy carbonation was "just right" for the intensity of flavours delivered.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle - September 2013 batch. Wow! As a White Birch enthusiast from the start I can’t believe I have not rated one of their flagship brews! The pour is hazy pale yellow with a fizzy, foamy white head that fades a tad and leaves lots of lacing clinging in its wake. The aroma is alive with floral hops, biscuit notes, and the White Birch in-house yeast. The body is medium and resiny with a keen smoothness to it. The floral Western hops explode on the palate along with a slight citrus-like sweetness. An American style IPA that hopheads should like.

Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Pours a light murky copper with a thin, but long lasting off-white head that leaves a light trail of lacing. Aroma has a light spruce tinge to it, light floral notes. Flavor is tangy with some light citrus bitterness, a touch of caramel, light breadiness. Fades just a bit in the finish. Thick enough mouthfeel.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 On draft at Taproom #307. Grassy lemony hop aroma. Lemony hop taste with a peppery kick at the finish. Crisp, pleasant, near-sessionable.

Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Hazy bright orange, moderate white head. Caramel malts (not too sweet), and piney hops with a plash of capsicum, moderately bitter finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Mudville 9. As good as clear, perhaps a bit blurry and red - orange really glowing in the glass. The head quickly disappears in to a small islandy thing. Not an extreme nose, some soft sweet malty biscuits with a trace of something fruity. Lots of peachy fruitiness in the taste! A bit surprising actually. Soft oily on the mouthfeel and gently carbonated with those small tight bubbles. Light malty flavors with a soft dry trace in the aftertaste. Quite alright. 20.06.2013

What a nice little sessionable IPA? Crisp, dry, bitter, piney and completely drinkable w/ a good palate to boot. I’d happily drink this over Founders All Day IPA.
