4.05/5  rDev +11.6%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger off white head which slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: A juicy and fairly earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and grass. Citrus hops with hints of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, and tangerine. Earthy and floral hop hints with some grass and pine. Pale malt background with hints of grains, caramel, cracker, and yeast. A pretty nice IPA aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, an earthy and juicy hop forward taste with good notes of citrus and grass. Upfront floral and earthy hop presence with notes of grass and pine resin. Citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and pineapple. Bready pale malt backing with notes of grains, cracker, caramel, and yeast. A pretty solid session IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and slightly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A solid take on a session IPA. Good hop taste with a light smooth body.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 5/16

Pours medium bronze with fluffy patchy white foam. Hazy. Floral nose, very light grassy pine. Mild taste, balanced, small bitter. Citrus taste spread throughout. Grapefruit. Like the concept - the flavor of an I{PA, but balanced and sessionable.

3.76/5  rDev +3.6%

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenstraw; an impressive, rocky head caps the liquid and leaves some nice lacing action

Smell: Slightly herbal, pithy and grassy

Taste: Cracker malt, up front, with lemon, pith and a dash of herbal tones building through the middle; dry, but slightly soapy finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not the best session IPA out there but a pleasant drinker
