Our I.P.A. has a fiery amber color and weighs in at 6.6% ABV. We use a blend of American hops to give it a citrus, almost tangerine aroma from the top of the glass. As you drink the beer you can taste the sweet creamy caramel malt roll over your tongue. At the end once again taste the big hop flavor that is a trademark of all I.P.A.’s, but yet, so smooth that it won’t make you pucker at the bitterness.

Single can from W&M Mansfield. Pours out a murky light amber with a frothy off-white head. Very strange aroma. Somewhat sweet, lemony and foul. Flavor is not much better. Dank and funky, in a bad way. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a drain pour. Very sad in this day and age that a brewery would attempt something like this.

Pour is clear copper color with a tight white head. Nose is rubber, notes of plastic, some caramel malt, and a light resin hop. Taste is metallic, burnt rubber, caramel, candied orange sugar. Creamy body, moderate carb, a bit syrupy, dry finish.

asheft (2761) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Lemony caramel aroma with some spicy toffee and faint butterscotch. Almost clear copper under a lasting, thin white sheet. Spicy and melony malt and hops combination that it’s more like an English IPA. Some late citrus and pine accents and a moderate to medium bitterness. Medium body, lingering bitter caramel finish, moderate carbonation.

rjplumer (723) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Tangerine aroma greets you first. Hazy mild amber color with off white head. Tangy citrus bitterness with a mild sweetness. Refreshing and not overwhelmingly bitter. Well done and quite a treat.

Jayb0 (1103) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2012
A decent IPA. Dark amber, nose of citrus and maybe dried apple. Good body, relatively thick. Great lacing is a highpoint, appetizing to look at. Taste is good although somewhat straightforward and not totally integrated. Still, totally drinkable.
