Extremely bitter. I am fairly new to drinking craft beers, spent years drinking domestics. I get excited each time I get a new bottle. I had the 312 and thought it was pretty good. I couldn’t wait to try this one out. Upon opening I was teased with a great aroma and then when I poured I was even more excited because it was a beautiful color, like ginger ale with a hint of orange. When I tasted I was shocked, bitter as hell and not good at all. Has a hint of orange flavor. Could not get this down, dumped it.

On draft at the airport in Tampa. Smells wonderful. Bright beautiful hops. Citrus, grass, and orange rhine. Appears golden orange with a white lacy top. Tastes fresh for a draft beer. Very surprised. Great ipa

On draft. Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Smells of cascade hops and a touch of caramel. Thin, but not light mouthfeel. Decent hop flavor with a malt finish. Not a bad IPA.

This is a pretty good beer overall. Not much for aroma and look but it is a crisp hoppy brew. Finished great. Good IPA not great.

Berard (309) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft. Pours orange with thin white head that is thin but dissipates. Medium carbonation with mild hop aroma. Mildish ipa hop flavor with little complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
