3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Delaney’s in New Haven, CT. Nice amber color. One-dimensional in it’s Cascade-y hoppiness, but that’s what I’m looking for in a quaffable IPA and this fits the bill perfectly.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a translucent copper amber with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is a little understated, some light maltiness, crackers, lemons and some orange zest. The hops come through better in the flavor, a little piney, some lemons, with a strong malt back bone, caramel, sweet dough, some toasted grains, nice sweet malts. Finish is medium bodied and smooth. Kick a little more into the nose and you’d have something very very nice. Even as is, I think this is underrated.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly, leaving some lace. Cloudy brown/amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Piney hops and paint thinner nose. Flavor starts with sweet malt but quickly goes to hop and finishes with a paint thinner aftertaste. IPAs are not my favorite but this one needs a lot of work. Overpriced at $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.
