2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Six pack of cans. Pours out a murky golden color. Bready-spice aromas. Flavor is muddled and bitter, but not very good at all. Reminds me of the crap everyone was making about 12 years ago. This does nothing for me. A waste of my hard-earned cash.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from a six pack purchased at local stop and shop (supermarket). Smells, pours and tastes like a Bud with a tiny bit more hops. Really unimpressive.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of floral, piney, and lightly citrusy hops, some caramel and pale malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a good amount of bitter hops. Average texture. A standard IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from Brewery: This one pours a fairly clear coppery color. There was a small off white head that left some lacing. Nice hop nose. Pine and citrus dominate. The taste is very good. It has a good hop bite. Mainly citrus and pine flavors, with a decent malt body behind it. Nicely balanced.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had my hopes up for this one, brewery is right down the road. English style IPA that doesn’t deliver on the promise of being a heavily hopped beer. This is a miss.

12 oz. can. Pour is hazy golden orange. White head with good lacing. Smell is citrus, grapefruit, heavy bittering hops and pine.
