3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma for an IPA, with citrus and pine. Flavor starts sweet with some metallic tinge. Finishes with pine/citrus bitterness. Pretty good effort from a brand new brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle purchased at RedStone Liquors, Stoneham, MA. The appearance has a light haze in a golden liquid, thin head that’s stayed most of the pint. Aroma is light pine, mild citrus and some pale malts.
The hops and bitterness comes from a mixture of citrus and pine and lasts of a short duration after the sip. A pretty large amount of sweetness from malt and it’s hard to know if that is intended or if the bottle has seen the shelf a tad to long. Like most breweries, no bottle dating.
Still good and nothing at all wrong with it but I prefer a little more hop punch in my IPA’s. If I ever see it on draft in MA, I would sample it again.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
An excellent IPA. ABV is a little on the high side, but it's an extremely drinkable and complex IPA. Definitely worth trying. It's a winner.

Nicely balanced iPa with some fruity notes and hoppiness upfront and a smooth finish. Better than your average iPa

Bottle. Clear medium yellow with beautiful soft head and sheets of lace. Light tropical fruit blossom and fresh light bread aromas. Flavor is simple light sweet and balanced clean bitterness, slightly vegetal and metallic. Soft texture with a silty touch. It its nice because it is easy and fresh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from Muckey’s. Pours out a crystal clear light golden color with a frothy white head. Honey-spice aromas. Flavor is crisp and clean. Lots of bitterness, balanced with just enough sweetness. Some spruce and grapefruit notes. Long bitterness at the end with a slighly sticky finish. Good effort from a new local brewer.
