3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours deep golden with a foamy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of mild smoked meat, herbal, minty, spicy hops.

The taste is of light smoke that weaves in and out. Herbal/minty character also weaves in and out. A sweet touch in the middle leads to an aspirin-like bitterness in the finish.

It is light-bodied, as intended, I assume. Somewhat fizzy initially, it eventually gives way to a smooth texture.

An "interesting", unique brew. I can see scores varying on this. Not sure that I really loved the smoked meat/minty character combination, but I liked it enough to drink it and enjoy it. Wouldn't seek it out again, but would recommend trying, as there is nothing "wrong" with it - just would depend on the palate/personal taste.

3.24/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a tumbler.

Would have loved it if the label had mentioned something about the smoke, but, hey, what do I know about marketing or disclosure? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger or so of lightly dirty-white foam. The nose comprises blunt smoke (I'm thinking mesquite, though it's only vaguely characteristic), light menthol, light mint, mild spicy greens, and a touch of Band-Aid. The taste brings in more of the same, the smoke and spicy mint battling for coverage, the smoke usually winning out. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent smoked IPA, but one that doesn't juggle the smoke and hops all that well (the completely-forgotten malts are another story altogether) for my tastes.

3.6/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had no idea this was a smoked beer until I looked here. Tastes more like a session IPA with a hint of smoke. Malty backbone, biscuity, honey, earthy hops with a hint of citrus finishing with a touch of wood bark and smoke. The nose is sweet with some green wood notes. I love smoked beers and this just does not fit into the category at all. Good beer, especially for the ABV, but just not to style.

3.45/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, slight citrus, pine, hint of yeast, and a hint of pale malt. Does not fit the style of a Smoked Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, slight citrus, pine, hint of yeast, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, decent appearance, weak aroma, Smoke is nonexistent in both aroma and body, and not complex.

On tap at Old Fashion. Listed as an IPA.

A: served ice cold in a frozen pint glass. Seriously it's as if old fashion hasn't been pouring for years... Crystal clear golden yellow in color. Little head. Some light lacing.

S: very restrained aroma though that's likely from being ice cold. Light pale malts some citrus and a hint of mint.

T: taste is also fairly light. Light pale
Malts. Light sweetness. A bit of orang and bitter citrus rind. Herbal minty. There is a chemical aftertaste in the backend. Possibly the smoke?

M: lighter body. Appropriate carbonation. Moderate, soapy bitterness.

O: Aside from the soapiness, this isn't a bad beer. Certainly not at $11/pitcher.

4.05/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a soapy, white head that laces nicely. Soft, citrus-floral aroma. Golden clear color. Starts with a nice, fruity bitterness and acidity. Moves into a citrus rind bitterness, then a HUGE wave of smooth malt with a touch of smokiness. Lingering citrus rind bitterness with sweet malt and a floral backing.

This is really nice. It's quite interesting in that it's very floral and fruity, but also very malty. I LOVE a Rauchbier, and this is very subtle on the smoke, but the cherry wood really adds a nice fruitiness with the floral hops and smokey acidity. I like it alot.

3.94/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Nice clean orange with a string of tiny bubbles, thin white cap, and oodles of lacing.

Smells lightly medicinal with a slap of peppermint toothpaste.

Slight malt, plenty of minty hops, tingly menthol, and a spearmint finish.

Crisp, clean, surprisingly enjoyable.

In theory, session IPA's are a fantastic idea....in practice they often suck. Furthermore has made an enjoyable, drinkable, non-shitty session IPA with enough hops to say good-day while not making you say good-night.
