4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is an amazing piece of New England Artwork. It is billed as an American Pale Ale, but loaded with generous amounts of Cascade, Centennial, and Willamette hops in the entire brewing process. This beer is for hopheads. Make no mistake about it. I had it out of the bottle (bomber as we call it) and it was great. To have it out of the tap, it must be fantastic!!

Had on tap in Hampton after Blue Lobstering it an hour earlier. Iíll make this as short as I can: crisp and grainy, like white rice, with some noble hoppiness playing around the main concept of vague citrus, yeast, and maize. Not bad.

Pours a barely hazy deep golden color with a monstrous bone white head that slowly recedes to sticky lace on the sides of the glass. Nice hoppy aroma! Lots of citrus and pine with a hint of bready malt and earth. The flavor is mild caramel and bready malts with a fair amount of earthy pine hop flavor. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Nice easy drinking pale ale, and from NH to boot. I canít wait to see what they come out with next!

Pours gold into a Sam glass. White conglomerate head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Sweet tropical fruit and resin aromas. Soft with tropical fruit and resin front to back. Dry lasting nutty resin finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad pale ale. Pours with a nice copper color. Great mouthfeel that betrays its quite low ABV. Hoppy and bitter, but slightly unbalanced, with the latter overwhelming the former to some extent. An IPA-lite? Overall, though, good!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Garys Beverage, Portsmouth, NH. Hazy gold color with thin soapy Head. Nose was bready mal and light Earthy pine. Taste is subtle pine hops with a moderate bitterness toward the finish. Malt balances it just right. Medium body and moderate carbonation giving a light prickle on the tongue. Overall this is a nice drinker, anyone could down this real easily.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Poured into a pint glass. Pours hazy amber/orange with a 1/2" white head. Spotty lace. Mild floral aroma with biscuits & honey. In other words bready and sweet. Flavor followed suit. Mildly hoppy and mildly sweet. Smooth, somewhat creamy palate. Ez to drink. Not outstanding, but certainly good and worth trying.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Another gem brewed & bottled at Mercury in Ipswich, MA. Bomber poured into a wide mouthed snifter. Hazy orange in color. I was hoping that the snifter would help circulate more of the scent. Light nose of sweet, resiny hops and light pine needles, nonetheless. Light, crisp mouthfeel, low carbonation. Grapefruit peels up front. Mild bitterness of resiny hops on the finish. This is one delicious beer, not ground breaking, but Iíd love to drink this all day!
