4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spicy hay with a hint of citrus on the nose. Light malt with touch of caramel and firm bitter and minerally hop grip. East coast style IPA or leaning towards an aggressive British IPA I guess.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
FROM NOTES: November 1, ’13.
A: Strong citrus and pine hop notes, with an equally strong bready aroma.
A: Pours a clear and bright copper-amber under a sudsy head that leaves behind a nice lacing.
T: Initially watery and flavorless, but copious amounts of butter cracker and slight caramel malts come into play before the herbal hops add some bitterness on the finish.
P: Medium body and moderate carbonation.
O: Fits the East coast IPA stereotype, more English style than American.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: At the Oyster Club in Mystic, 7/13/13
Aroma: The nose is subtle and decent, some floral hops, caramel malts, and doughy notes
Appearance: The pour is a mostly clear orange color with a small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, balanced and a little dull, mild hops for the style
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a pretty good drinkability
This was a decent beer, but really, this was an unimpressive IPA. It is drinkable, and not really anything more than that.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft on the New London ferry. Pours gold amber with foamy off white head. Aroma- sweetish grapefruit and grass hops, slightly bitter. Taste-medium sour grapefruit into sweet grapefruit and grass with sour bitter finish with some dirt that peaks but doesn’t last long. For not preferring grapefruit and dirt, this is mild and drinkable but still has taste.
