Slightly piney, slightly citrus aroma with some caramel malt hints. Nothing that really grabs your nose though. Pours a hazy cider color with an off-white head. A little too murky for an IPA. Exquisitely bitter and hoppy to finish. Very grapefruity. Some citrus to start. Subdued grainiess. This is a really chewy and grainy IPA. It’s a decent change from the typical C-hopped west coasters.

Cloudy amber color,small off white head that had a good hangtime then faded to a small lace.Nice malty hoppy aroma with a little grapefruit and maybe some caramel but little else.Nice fruity flavor up front and kind of sweet as well,then a quick change to a bitter grapefruit taste and hops abound.very nice brew and thanks to Oldgrowth for sending this fine brew my way.

Straight forward New England IPA that is earthy and well rounded. A pint after pint IPA.

Medium hop aroma but also had an off aroma that didn't belong there. Poured with a huge head that lasted for some time. This beer had lots of floaters. This was an old oxidized beer, the hop flavors were stale I'll need to try this fresh and rate it again.

Thick bottom layer gives "interesting" haze in orange-amber ale; miscellaneous yellow-amber head. Hop flowers, opened hopbail nose, flowery - nearly perfumey. Very bitter indeed, hop-oil like, near bile taste. There's (coloured) malt underneath, but it's gotten completely overwhelmed by this bitter onslaught. Medium-bodied only. Oily mouthfeel, probably due to the hop(...). Yeast deposit gives more creamy feeling. Hopbitterness, indeed, but this one is totally without any subtelty. Nice nose, but the total unbalance ruins it.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Petty solid IPA, more toward an English IPA, but that is what I expect from the East Coast. Bronze colored, small head. Very balanced. Moderate amount of hops, probably a crystal malt, not over the top on either. Very good beer, Thanks Oldgrowth

OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Bottle: Ok nose,floral & flowery. Brownish orange color. Tad hazy. Decent head. Bitter sweet hops, grapefruit, buttery. Bitter, medium bodied. Leaves nice bitter dryish finish. I like it alot, though this is another of those beers that use to seem big but now seems regular. Glad it's back in Ipswich again.

Hazy amber in color with a small white head.Floral hops with a slight citrus dominate the aroma.Bitter and hoppy,slightly off blanced but a good IPA none the less.

<b.12oz Bottle, no freshness date This is an ale that nearly 13 or more years ago was a regular of mine. One could almost always find a couple of growlers in my fridge back then.A dark golden honey color that is slightly chill hazed with a small but tight dense head. Aroma is grassy and floral. Aroma reminding me of Heavy Handed IPA. Body is medium and smooth. Flavor is not how I remember this one but it has been a long time since I've had it and things at this brewery have changed a few times since then. Grassy hop flavor that is slightly sweet backed up by a decent grainy malt flavor. Finishes slightly bitter. Again, not what it used to be but not too bad anyway.
