3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This APA poured a cloudy dark yellow colour with a minimal head. Scents include pineapple citrus hops, orange citrus hops and maybe a floral hop? First swig was smooth and a little watery. Hop level alot less than expected based on the scents. Flavours of lemon zest and citrus hop in general. Finish was mildly bitter with the citrus shining through.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, pours a cloudy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out astringent floral hops and crackery malt. Flavour is exactly the same, with wheaty dry hops and dry crackery malt. Not the most interesting beer from these dudes, but still decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. A lovely light copper gold with a nice filmy white head. A clean bready pine aroma. Impressively full bodied with a soft smooth round mouthfeel. The taste has a bitter earthy pine bark hit upfront then tons of fruitiness in the finish: †tangerines, peaches, mango. A wonderfully satisfying session ale.†

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml). From Sammy, thanks! Hazy yellow/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is of pineapple, mango, floral notes and almost no malt presence. Taste is also of pineapple, mango, peaches along floral notes, very light malt presence and very light bitterness. Light body (not watery though). Soft carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. A little depth would help, but this is dangerously drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy pale orange-yellow with a small white head that fades slowly and leaves some lace. Nose is lemon and grapefruit with light pine and some floral notes. Light sweet caramel and fruit start leading to a moderate bitter grapefruit and light spice middle and a dry finish. Mouth is the light side of medium but not watery with quite active carbonation. Excellent session PA.

500 mL bottle at the Ashburnham Ale House. Hazy yellow with a small, sticky white head. The aroma is quite striking, with pineapple/mango kinda thing going on. No malt in thd nose, but thatís okay. Taste is about as full as a 4.8% beer is going to be.All hops again, but not enouhh bitterness to be considered a session IPA. Very noce beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Tap sample at brewpub, Jul 3 2014) Pours a slightly hazy dark orangish gold with an average white head and some lace. Aroma has orange/grapefruit peel, peach, floral, bit of tropical fruit, smells pretty nice. On the palate, orange peel, floral, light pine, peach, pale malts are lightly sweet, bit of grain. The hops are moderate in intensity initially and trail off, but itís more watery than punchy and bitter on the finish. Kinda fizzles. Light body, moderate carb. Itís a decent session beer I suppose, but it tasted too "light" on the tongue for nearly 5% from my perspective. Iíve never tried it before because Iíve always gone for a full on IPA, and would again in the future. Would be great for many more casual beer drinkers though.
