look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Leftovers Cafe. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Orange body, mostly clear. Nice white head and some lacing inside the glass.

Smell - Citrus, grapefruit, and a bit of an oniony hop aroma. Simcoe maybe. Some grain.

Taste - Citrus and grapefruit hop. Very grainy. Bitterness builds quickly. Pithy bitterness. Resiny in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light and over bitter. Drinkable for sure, but a little abrasive.

Overall - I'm enjoying all of these session IPAs. Glad to see a return to sensible styles here.

Served at the brewery.

Very pale, lightly hazy. It smells tropical - mango and pineapple. It tastes divine, explosions of bitter fruit. Cleanish finish. No lingering bitterness. Excellently sessionable, and definitely enjoyable. Highly recommended; perhaps my second favorite hop.

Looks clean and bright. Clear, light golden. Not a ton of head. Smell is heavy tropical fruits and citrus.
Really nice punchy hop presence, but crazy dry, easy drinking finish, with the slightest of grain sweetness. A favorite in the session IPA category.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On-tap 8/26/13 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains piney hops, some citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts with a strong burst of hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid IPA to drink for a long time.
