3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at Fenway. Really cold, really great coloring with thick cask-like head. Aroma of instant peach plus heavy flower, really bitter hop and mineral. Flavor focuses on the bitterness of the lupulus. Kind of one-note and seriously carbonated.

I got the cask conditioned version of this beer. It has an amber color and an off-white head that lasts for a little bit. Piny hops and burnt sugar are what I got out of the nose. Rather hoppy taste at the front that drops off and reveals some of the malty undertones. The finish is then bitter and lingers a little in the aftertaste. Not overly complex but certainly full of flavour. No complaints really for me.

seemed too light in color from the keg this ale is nicely hopped and complex and in competition with it’s own quality malt flavor. a hop and barley mash fragrance it has a sour off flavor weaving in and out only making it more interesting and genuine. solid yet not overpowering with a craftsmans mix of grapefruit and infused pine flavors. good finish clean and not abrupt with well matched alcohol. i like brews like this that are wholly satisfying but yet quite drinkable. i say, a bit of a treat!

On tap at brewpub. This is the definition of a solid American IPA. Great color, taste, and smell. Big hops bring out a nice drinkable bitter finish.

From a growler . Pours a deep copper color with a 1/2" off white head. Nose was very hoppy as you would expect. Huge hop flavor with a good, strong malty backbone. Strong, bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at fenway. Decent IPA. Pours a medium copper with a thin lasting head and some streaky spotty lace. Aroma is nice- modest use of hops- citrus, light orange zest, some hints of pine. Light crisp clean pale malts, zesty clean hops - citrus and light resin, with a good clean bitter finish.

On tap: This was a well made IPA that had nice balance and a dry/bitterness especially in the finish. That said, it was quite similar to many other IPA’s as there was little memorable with it.

From the Fenway location - Poured a golden amber in color with a small white head that faded to a rim around the glass. Aroma was fairly strong of citrus and pine hops. Flavor was nice and hoppy with a medium bitterness. Some malty sweetness on the finish. Clean, drinkable... I liked it!

draught at Canal St brewpub. a decent IPA, with tons of hop flavour packed into a strong pale base. aroma is grass and citrus. dangerously easy to drink too
