3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I enjoyed a couple pints of this beer on tap in Delaware. The beer had a dark, rich amber color with low visibility and a good-sized, white, semi-creamy head that had good retention, along with great cling and good lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of zesty citrus and pine hops along with some floral components and lighter earthy notes. The taste was fairly bitter with citrus flavors along with a very light sweet malt flavor and touches of lemon and straw. Its body was just a touch creamy and full with a good dense mouthfeel along with medium carbonation and good fizz.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose is beery and actually surprisingly wheat-like. There are no strong malty aromas. The nose is lightly piney, but less so than you’d expect from an IPA. Subtle floral dimension to the nose, maybe carnations.
The palate is nutty and malty with hazelnuts, almonds and some nice toasty flavors. There is some wheat toast, some multigrain toast, some graham cracker richness and sweetness. Hop presence is pronounced, but less so than you might expect from an American IPA. There are some resinous, piney flavors.
The finish is lightly bitter and brief.
I liked this one but not as much as the 90 minute.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear medium amber with a small white head that doesn’t last and leaves some sparse lace. Nose is fairly muted pine, citrus, grass and bready malts. Light toffee sweetness and a medium- bitterness. Mouth is medium slick with average carbonation and a dry finish. Very balanced and drinkable but no outstanding character.

Vom Fass in der Brauerei in Milton, DE. Helles kastanienfarbenes Bier mit feinem hohem Schaum. Fruchtig-malziges Arom. Grapefruit, Aprikose, Kräuter, etwas Baumharz. Sehr runder und vollmundiger Geschmack. Jeder Schluck eine Freude. Langer bitterer Abgang. Ein echter Craftbeer Klassiker!

I love this beer. Hate to use the term ’well rounded’ but this has it all. Earthy, grassy and even wheat notes. A subtle creaminess to it. Flavoursome. Lovely in the mouth, even better going down. Great on its own or with food. Very versatile IPA that deserves it notable credibility.
