Moderate piney bitterness that doesn’t outlast its welcome. Nice drinkability. Its different, which is a good thing..

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is just bursting with lovely hops, pine and citrus fruit, very fresh and a little leafy, some nice tropical hints without showing off. Clear golden pour with a sudsy white head. Taste is medium-bitter with light but persistent sweetness, no tang; somewhat dry and lightly resinous with more volume, medium body with a lightly soapy hop cleanse, everything very clean and not overly aggressive for an IPA. Pine and caramel are backed off but there’s still a nice balance struck. Really solid all-around.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grapefruit, pine hop aroma. Appearance is gold and it's crystal clear with a white head with good head retention and lacing. Grapefruit hop flavor is upfront with a light caramel note on the end. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Hop resin coats the mouth on the end leading to a dryness. Overall, it tastes like an old school ipa. Nothing special

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very pale, almost straw golden with a thinner eggshell head that settles to a ring and leaves some clingy, soapy lace. Nose involves some grapefruit, a touch of pine resin, lightly toasted malt, some spice, some tropical fruit. Fairly sweet, pretty bitter. Lighter bodied, a bit oily, juicy, pretty active, with a drying hoppy bitter finish. A nice IPA, somewhat subtle, but very drinkable and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt and bready. Some hops too but not excessive. Bready malt aroma dominates. Taste is malty with a bit of a hop balance. Cannot taste a dominant HO flavor. Not overly hoppy. Malt dominates. Light carbonation. Pretty good and I would drink it again, but for the amount if malt I feel like there could be more hop to balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share at Proof. Pale gold with some white head and a good collar. Faint aroma of lemon, a touch of malty sweetness too. Light malt and some clean/spicy hop presence. Medium body and carbonation. Enjoyable but nothing I’d give another shot; sad because some Captain Lawrence brews are among my favorite.
