3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a pale golden color with a small head that fades quickly to a film. Good lacing. The aroma is good, but not outstanding. Hops are have a floral aroma. Not sure what kind of hops are used, but the aroma does not seem to match the taste. The beer has a fruity sweetness. Bitter, yes, but not overly bitter and certainly not raspy like some of the continental hops. The combination is unique. Flavor is soft and pillowy compared to a lot of American IPAs. I like it, but it is certainly not typical. This makes the second IPA this week I have tried with unconventional taste/aroma. The other was Great Divide . The beer is immensely drinkable. Accessible for those just getting to know IPAs; but different enough to be interesting to the initiated. The texture is medium. Lower carbonation keeps it soft in the mouth as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Union Bar in Boston with commonshawn and samadouche. Pint glass. Clear golden with a hint of orange. Lacing is strong but minimal head. This bartender is quintessential Boston. Aroma is mild but hops at the forefront. Malty aspects come through more than expected. Light in body and pretty easy to drink. Feels like a standard IPA that is definitely approachable to the masses. Some citrus present. This isn’t going to blow you away with originality but you won’t be unhappy either.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrus pine aroma in a golden pour. Hop forward balance with a restrained fruity body that leads to a sustained bitter finish. A pleasant brew - but one that doesn’t stand out from the crowded field.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy amber, white head, some lacing. Nose is mildy fruity with floral notes - not too much alpha acid here - very mild. Flavor is very nice with a great blend of soft barley malt and lightly piquant hop resin. Very good for an old-school US IPA.
