Fruity and grassy hops in the nose. Nice malty taste quickly followed by the dry bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve never heard of this Yank brewery before, but supposedly it’s well acclaimed and I can understand why. A very nice pale ale. Tastes absolutely nothing like an IPA (in the proper English non-bastardised sense), which it purports to be. Light amber in colour and very bitter sweet. Very spicy in taste - almost something of a Belgian there. Very enjoyable!

Orangey pour. Big rush of hops right off the bat, but the aromas seem to blow off over time. Mild malty backbone coated with piney hops. Thin bodied. Very similar to the Hopscotch, but the APA seemed fresher.

Have had bottled and on tap. No detailed notes - just had a couple at dinner and realized I hadn’t entered it yet. Decent enough.

Pours a grand orange amber whatever color, with a decent head and a fairly lively carbonation. The head didn't last long but it has a pleasing strawberry aroma with some hops. Tasty and very well balanced with a smooth finish. I didn't find it near as hoppy as the last couple IPA's I've tried, but I think this is a very refreshing and well made brew.
