Bottle that Brian brought back from Cape cod and had in his fridge last 4 months. Pours a dark amber color with a white head with spotty lace. The aroma is hoppy, with pine and resin. The taste is pine and citrus hops with some bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. It was good after a run.

"Not bad, not great. Nicely balanced caramel and biscuit malt, and citrus and piney hops. nothing really pops, but itís pleasant to drink. perhaps a well made starter ipa?"

It pours a nice cloudy golden ale color. A mellow and balanced hop profile match the malty body for a well rounded IPA. Obviously not a west coast IPA but rather a Massachusetts hop ale to hold its own.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber, tall head.
Medium body, well balanced mouthfeel, rich, intense but simple flavor, long palate.
Very bitter and dry, despite maltyness,
Hoppy but not in an American way, malty, floral, herbal, hint of grapefruit.
A balanced and intense IPA, just not a lot of personality.

This is a nice IPA. Pours a light mahogany, somewhat amber color with off white head and very little lacing. Lemon, straw, citrus notes on the head. Pine, resin, hints of caramel, mild bitterness make for a really nice beer. Itís actually less hoppy than I expected, making this IPA unlike other hopped up ales.

The aroma is hoppy with much less citrus than one might expect. The beer has a smooth start and an acidic finish in the mouth. The taste is similar with some good balance starting out finished by what I find excessive bitters.

Light hop aroma, dark amber, somewhere between a regular IPA and an imperial. Smooth and malty like an imperial but a little bitter and not as full bodied, like a regular IPA. -March madness 2014

Pours a hazy orange with a smallish head. Nice aromas of caramel and orange. It has a nice balance, but the finish is a bit off.
