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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great head retention and cool color for an IPA, but sadly, the front of the mouth taste is lacking and the malt overpowers the hops, and not in the best way. Again, though, for a new brewery, they are off in the right direction. Hopefully they improve on this. Its drinkable but not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from can into a tulip: Pours golden with a one finger head. Aroma of resin, slightly sweet from the malts, and a little floral. Flavor is very thin, hop bite is minimal and so is the flavor. Thin body, not a lot going on with this beer, but not offensive either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can poured a copper amber color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has mild hops, some resins, and bits of citrus. Mouth feel is medium with good carbonation. Flavor has nice hops, resins, a fair bit of supporting malt, a bit of bitterness, and citrus.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
