Grabbed in a sampler pack from Lakefront at THE Heritage liquor
Look: pours a dark Amber with a white head. Not a big fan of the color

Smell: the smell is pretty excellent. I'm picking up pine and grapefruit mainly but with some sweetness as well

Taste: An initial fruity taste with a bite at the end of pine

Feel: good carbonation throughout the beer not a terribly dry finish and a medium mouth feel

Overall: I would buy this again and possibly seek it out. Considering it's a session IPA, it's surprisingly tasty

This beer pours a slightly hazy goldne straw color with a decent head. The aromas are primarily tropical. The flavor also leads with a burst of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, back up by a solid swet bread malt. The mouthfeel is middling, neither thick nor thin, in fact it is more full bodied than most sessions. Overall this is a very enjoayble session brew, perfect for when you want a full flavored beer with less ABV.

poured out of bottle into wine glass

look - clear, coppery
smell - not much, little malts
taste - watery, malts watery, very drinkable
feel - water (theme) little effervescence
overall - drinkable,I know the watery review sounds negative but honestly a much better version of some crappier light beers I drink. I'd consider putting it into a summertime rotation on a long day of drinking.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is bright lemon and grapefruit.
The taste has a moderate bitterness, the middle is a bit of a crash of bitter and sweet, but still fine.
The texture is crisp.
Enjoyable.

L: Pours hazy gold producing a 1” cream colored foam collar that takes 3” to fully integrate itself back into the beer leaving a thin, lacy film. S: a herbal biscuit scent with some floral notes mixed with fresh mown grass and a little pine rise form the glass. T: The palate features light melon, bery and citrus flavors in balance with a grassier, herbal hop bitterness. It all rides on a backbone of lightly sweet malt that dries out by the finish. F: Very creamy with a medium light body, medium carbonation. O: This is a very full flavored sessionable beer that is well worth repeating.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pineapple, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is an excellent session IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Time for a session ale!

A : Nice dark iced tea color with 80% opacity. The head is voluminous and fluffy and creates a beautiful cap about 2 fingers tall. It sticks to the side of the glass as it recedes, clinging on for dear life.

S : The smell is faint but I'm getting cling peach, fresh roses, some moldy bread, and sourdough.

T : I can taste unbuttered, unsalted popcorn among sharp pine-noted hop. Fruit peels as well as a faint banana note and moldy peach accompany it. Cantaloupe rind. Slight herbal dank.

F : A pucker in the mouthfeel wraps it up at the end. The front is semi-dry and heavily carbonated.

O : For a "session" ale it's a bit on the strong side, but most of the flavors here while unique are also somewhat unremarkable. The popcorn is both unique and off-putting.

A good strong citrus aroma. Falls into the criteria of a session IPA perfectly, with a nice and restrained bitterness to it. This would be a good introduction IPA for beginners.
