Bottle. Pure amber pour with but a thin head. It transmits a downright seductive aroma of a wet, piney forest. It drinks with a big mushy, mashy character ... Spruce, blood orange, bark. (#4917, 1/16/2013)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney hop with hints of citrus on the nose gives way to a stalwart malt profile to balance the big hops. Great for skiing where you want hops and a little extra malt for good measure.

The aroma is malty and yeasty with caramel and a huge floral citrus hop. The appearance is copper gold with a big foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter bread finish. The palate is average. Overall pretty good.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a little caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same, with nothing really to balance out the hops. Average texture. An average IPA.

Bottle. Cloudy golden with decent foamy head. Lots of bitterness but the malt is powerful. Not my favorite but a good ipa which is a little different.

A new arrival to NH, the notches on the side indicate July 2012, is that a bottled on or exp date?
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge white head that shows great retention and moderate lacing. The aroma is mostly garlic and green onions. Maybe there’s a hint of bready malt, but its really hard to find. The flavor follows the aroma really well. I get lots of vegetative onion and garlic hop flavor with just a hint of sweet bready malt that is struggling to find a voice. The finish holds a bit of licorice and more of the garlic long after every sip. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a light syrup resinous mouthfeel. Intense vegetative hop aroma and flavor, but this seems to lack any complexity. I could drink this, but wouldn’t seek it out.
