On tap at the brewery. Barely any smell, somewhat neutral. Lean pale appearance. Some co2. Quick sharp and astringent at times. Same with finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Brew Topia. Hazy orangeish with lasting head and some lace. Overripe orange and spice aroma. Medium bad orange (the bitter kind with no juice) sweetness with strong mouthcoating spicy bitterness and toothpaste hints. Medium body. Normal carbo. Just bad tasting. Terrible White IPA. Bad IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Red Robin of all places. Hazy yellow pour not unlike a wheat ale. Dried citrus peel and grass-hay aroma. Astringent bitter with grainy wheat thin cracker sweetness. Dry papery body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased from The Farm (Eastman’s Corner/Kensington, NH) earlier today during its first Winterfest. $6.50 for the 650 mL bottle. Gambling at its most infantile.
Aromas of wheat cereal, American noble hops, cabbage, charred lemons (#likethatonebeeratMarths), (then again - the scent could be akin toasted lemons), (#whotoastslemons?) (Dude: plenty of people. wtf.), and cotton. Unspeakably bland.
Tastes the same with the addition of mineral water/tonic water, and underripe juniper berries. The flavor certainly has a livelier zestiness to its spirit but nothing would be able to save this. Not a wowingly terrible brew, but just not something I’m likely to buy a second time.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow with a thin white head. Grassy hop flavors without much aroma. Finish is slightly bitter but undeserving of the title IPA.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours murky light yellow with a white head that lingers. Smells of wheat beer with medium carbonation. Looks and smells like a typical wheat beer. The hops are prominent and leave just a mild wheat flavor. Limited complexity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance is a hazy golden caramel colored body with a two fingered white foamy head that once it dies, a nice clingy sort of thick lacing graces the sides of the glass, lacing forms fairly thick and clings soundly to the sides of the glass.
The smell has some strong earthy caramel malts up front, I’m not getting the expected amount of bitter hops I would get from an AIPA.
The taste has some earthy caramel taste comes back and some bitterness eventually does come in to assist in balancing it; strong caramel-like aftertaste; dry sweet finish.
The palate sits about a medium on the body, not as sessionable as I had hoped. Carbonation is pretty smooth and that can be a good thing, but almost not as harsh as I had hoped for an AIPA.
Overall, my bottle may have been just a bit too old, but hey I’m glad to have tried an IPA from a company I’ve never had and don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get again, if anything I wouldn’t mind trying this fresher because at the moment this could be construed more of an EIPA than an AIPA if anything, no worries.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly opaque yellowish orange pour. Smell is floral orange peel, grainy, bready malt. Taste is bitter orange, bread, crackers. Another easy drinker, middle of the road.

22oz bottle dated May 2013. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head. Middle of the road IPA that goes down easy. Having recently finished hiking all the 4000 footers in NH I found the label to be the best thing about this one.
