3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Gold Amber mix. Light Grapefruit and pine. A little caramel. Very very drinkable. More of a pale ale than an ipa. Not bad.

Pours a orange golden color with a finger of white foam. Lots of caramel malt on the palate with sticky mouthfeel and a hint of cardboard. Pine and citrus hop profile that has moments of focus but gets a bit astringent on the finish.

Brattleboro Food Coop: pours copper with a nice white head. Aroma is some citrus, maybe a hint of pine, but overall not a powerful aroma. Taste is lightly bitter with hints of sweetness. Not a very powerful ipa but easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (bomber) shared by Minderbinder, thanks a lot bro! Pours a glowing golden with a thin white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nose is of fruits (tropical or not) and resin. Taste is of slight caramel (not too much), bitterness is moderately high and it is lightly sweet so I say that balance is good. Flavors include some soap, fruits and perfume. Body was medium, carbonation medium-high and there was some alcohol in the finish. Overall a nice surprise, I didn’t expect much from this little known brewery and it was actually solid!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Been waiting to find this on draft and haven’t been able to so... I picked up a 22 oz. bottle for $5.99 at my local Market Basket. No bottle date or label marker anywhere, like always. Cloudy gold color with light head retention. Aroma is grain, bready malt and light pine hops.
Flavor is a damn near copy of the aroma. With a light hint of women’s perfume with Dried straw. Bitterness is mild with a lighter side of medium in body. Overall, it’s drinkable for sure but I still hope to see this on draft in the better beer bars in NH.
