3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the Harvard location.
Color is a pretty nice orange color with an off white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is pretty plain with some light citrus hops and a bit of pine. The taste is similar with some light citrus and pine and doesnít really bring much; a slight bready taste as well. Feel has some very slight bitterness. Drinks fairly well, but not all that much involved.
Serving type: on-tap

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught@Cambridge location (late August). This was a somewhat subdued IPA, by American standards anyway. Lots of grainy malt notes come through immediately, and linger all the way to the finish. Light caramel flavours as well. Finish shows some earthy hop notes, lightly floral and lightly piney, kept waiting for the hops to come out, but they never really did. More in the English style I thought, while use of American aroma hops was obvious enough. Not bad.
