look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Notes: Best By on by 12/09/14 (consumed 7/8/14). Poured into a nonic pint

A: Pours a slightly cloud apricot color. Produced a very large white head - about 3 fingers.

S: Fruity - apricot and some pine.

T: Very slight bitter up front then a hint of apricot on the finish.

M: Pretty dry feeling. Not too much carbonation.

O: I am sort of neutral. There is nothing offensive - but there is nothing to draw me in for another. This is a so-so beer.

Had a 4.2% ABV edition touted as a session IPA.

Medium yellow body, slight orange hue with decent head, poor retention. Grassy scents, sourness, and hops dominate the nose. Crisp and light and a very, very astringent feel. I get that it contributes to the sessionability, but you can find a good session beer with better flavor and feel in multiple other categories of ale and lager. Too astringent as it seemingly took the bitter from the hops, but left the good juice-the devil's cut-behind. In fact, the only positive notes I had when tasting is when I swirled the yeast sediments on the bottom, and poured it into the beer to finally achieve a semblance of balance. Too bitter for an APA, bitter enough for an IPA, but that's all it's preaching.
