sampler at the pub. clear, golden color with a slight white head. Light citrus, hoppy aroma. Bitter up front. Still a bit light, could use a boost in the malt department. Decent, but not great

Draft in framingham. Pours a light gold/amber color. Nose is light hopps with some sweet and floral notes. Taste was watery and bland. there is little hopps to be found and more lager qualities arise.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the Framingham location, 5/27/2005. Light yellow-gold appearance with hints of light amber and a small white head that quickly recedes to a bubbly film, no lacing, slight chill haze. Aroma has bits of sweaty hay, light grainy vienna-like malt (not that that’s actually in there) and some floral/perfumey hops. Almost smells more like a pilsener than an IPA. The flavor, though, was quite solid, I thought. A good body provided by lightly doughy malt (white bread, honey, light biscuits). Low hops bitterness, but a moderate hops flavor of light lemon, tangerines and grassiness. Herbal finish, with light pale malts and a medium body overall, touch of wateriness, but a pretty solid, low carbonated mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

At the brewpub, shared a sampler of five with my wife. None of the beers really impressed me much. This wasn’t the worst o fthe bunch, wasn’t the best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Allright so I was told this was an IPA when I ordered it, but very clearly, both in appearance and aroma, such was not the case. Light golden amber color. Has a slightly hopped cirtus aroma. Fairly well balanced pale ale, again on the light side, crisp sweet bready malts, some hop bitterness. Pleasant but standard beer.

This golden APA starts with a nice aroma, unfortunately the flavor is completely unbalanced with hop bitterness dominating any trace of malt.
