2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at sb. Pours a slightly hazy burnished medium amber. Loose sudsy white head. Nose of cigarettes, like stale tobacco in a pack that got broken open and scattered. Mid palate tastes the same way. Medium body, lively carb, dry finish.
Draft at Life of Riley. Soupy grayish umber with dense white foam. Striking bergamot, basil, and lime leaf aroma. Flavor certainly is a little bland, but it’s plenty bitter and stemmy. Astringency present may be attributable to yeast bite. tricksta_p (5013) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2017
Can from a supermarket in Oregon. Aroma is soft fruity hops, caramel malt, biscuit, light tropical, grapefruit, touch of pine. Moderate sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Nice with soft fruity hops and pine as well as a sturdy malt backbone. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2016

Always wary around Session, had a good one recently, this not quite. Clean & tangy and caon I have another Nothing to complain about. some aroma, some flavor, loks gerat in a glass. clean finish. chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2016
On tap at the brewpub in White Salmon.
A session IPA with notably strong and pleasant aroma, and excellent lacing: the head leaves sheets of sticky lacing on the glass Pale golden body is slightly hazy. the light body seems too thin even for style.

12 oz can poured. Rating for game 3. Huge win in the 9th. Pours a golden yellow color with a fading fizz head. Aroma is sweeter fresh fruit, citrus, with some fruity, floral hop flavors. A beer that pairs well with baseball. Especially if there are games all day. In my opinion, this is exactly what a session IPA should be. It’s light, flavorful, and doesn’t have a harsh bitterness that most of them do. Extremely refreshing. Enjoyed the hell out of this. bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a slight white head. Light grassy aroma. Med body or so. Flavor is mostly bitter grassy with a hint of malt backbone. It is dry and bitter. Reasonably sessionable. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2015
This can weirds me out. The beer itself is fueled by dusty grains. It’s really a plae ale as far as I’m concerned. Nice sweetness. The hops are very restrained and there is some honey in the finish. jsnicholas (664) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2015
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Tap at brewery. Light golden with white head. Taste was lemon and some other citrus. Goes down fast. Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Pours a finger of head on a light straw body.
The aroma is grain, lemon, grapefruit and floral.
The taste is bold bitter grapefruit with a long dry bitter finish. Good profile.
The texture is crisp.
Great flavors and aroma.
