1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I rated this beer very low because I was expecting an IPA and it just isnít one. If it had been labeled belgium ale, I would say itís a good on. The taste is a mix of sweet and floral without a hint of bitterness. The head is thick and foamy, and it rose about 2 inches over the rim of the glass without spilling a bit. Really a shame that the guys at Blue Hill donít know what they made. If it was sold to me as a belgium ale I would think itís quite good. reminds me of a chimay with a little more character

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler picked up at a packy in Pittsfield, MA. Pours a pleasant robust dark orange brown, no visibiltiy though. Head is medium solid and leaves a 3cm hovering over the brew after the inital setteling. Aroma is not exploding with hops as I would have thought, more malt based with hops coming in second, then some ripe citurs, grass, and herbs. Taste is frontal hoppy, bitter, and organically fresh. this would probally benefit more if tasted fresh from the brewery rather than making the 200mile trek to Pittsfield, but its still very appealing for a dipa, it that it carries a solid abv which is an after thought, and the hops are a nice whirlwind of fun while ingesting. Just was looking for a little more bite to this one. But still solid.

22oz bottle from DeBucas. Pours out a hazy medium amber with a light tan head. Lightly sweet and floral-spice aromas. Flavor is well balance sweet and hoppy with spice and floral notes. Malty-bitter finish. Goes down smoothly. Not bad overall.
