3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good all around with a good hop aroma and taste but kind of ends with a rough bitterness that is less than ideal... Good ipa for the new brewery... Worth a shot!... It will get better I'm sure

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the tap room. Clear pale orange-amber color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mostly clear light golden pour with a smaller white head. Some citrus and resin on the nose but it smells slightly stale. Medium palate, decent carbonation, and the hops are fairly well balanced.

Aroma is dank/grassy hops and light notes of citrus and fruit. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, fruit, a good hint of hop resin in the texture and a dry and mildly tangy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
About a 45-degree pour right off the truck. No chill haze and a pure golden color. First 2 sips were full of hops. Rest of the glass showed off the malty background and proved its balance. Very warming at the end at over 7%.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours to a golden body with a thin white head. Aroma is light hops. The flavor is really balanced for an IPA. Like an English IPA. Medium body that is clean and easy drinking. Light actualized bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at Come Back In in Madison, WI. for their Maifest/Derby gathering. Showed a clear, golden color, with persistent, white head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was some tropical & floral hints, with white grapefruit, and a touch of resin. The taste was similar, with a light to medium body, good carbonation to project the flavor notes, and moderate hop bitterness. A decently drinkable IPA, so I passed on the Session IPA this time.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear orange amber, medium creamy beige head, dissipates fairly slowly with good lacing left behind. Aroma is light pine, citrus, caramel, more pine. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, sprucy, citrus, bread and pine. Medium body, medium soft carbonation. Also not bad, but lacking the juicy pop of the better IPAs.
