Draft to taster at Odd Side. Looks solid; a completely transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid too; bitter, piney, and citrusy with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, but less robust, and with a touch of grain as well. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied and slightly bitter. Decent, but smells better than it tastes.

koleminer20 (2699) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This is from Dumpster Box No. 1. The pour on this baby is a foggy gold with a thick white head and a decent amount of thick lace. The aroma is all bitter hop. There is a decent malt profile behind it, but the bitterness seems to be what it is going to base on. The flavor is surprisingly not bad. There is a hefty malt up front. The hop bitterness comes through about half way in and it finishes really juicy. It's not bad, but definitely not what I was expecting. The mouth feel is thin and light with a slightly lingering juicy hop. It's interesting, but could definitely use some work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ebone1988 (1484) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #1. Aroma is pineapple, other tropical fruit, light pine, a lot of malt. Appearance is amber golden, off white head. Taste is juicy hops, pine, a bit of malt but not off-putting. Mouthfeel is light body and crisp carbonation. Overall, this isn?t great but also isn?t bad.

355ml bottle. it is a gusher. Hazed gold pour, big white head. Aroma is spicy with autolyzed yeast. Flavor is smoky and possibly bretty. It is hard to imagine that breweries are still releasing crap like this in this day and age.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big mint, pine, slight orange into a bit of cracker and biscuity notes. Taste was a mix of grass, cracker, biscuit into a bit of orange, minty and pine, slight resin, finishing slightly sweet, dry.

chucklemation (1476) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours a pale copper with a thin white head. Aroma is a little bit of line. Flavor is very light, mostly malty, with light hop bitterness in the finish. Ok - just not too memorable.

stebbin (4) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 28, 2015 does not count
Not labeled as a session IPA but certainly is. Solid hop aroma, a bit flat on color and body. Taste is okay, a bit malty for my liking. For a session IPA that's only 4.5% ABV it's decent, and could be something one could drink all day long if they aren't too picky.
