Bottle from the Beer Store Nashua
Fairly clear light golden color with a good sized frothy white head with great retention. Earthy piney rustic with hints of bread and faint phenol’s. Bitter smooth rustic somewhat like a hoppy saison with a bit of body, enjoyed!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2015 Golden medium bodied with floral nose, consistent lacing, and citrus flavor. I think the ambiguous ’American IPA’ leans more to an East Coast style IPA. This offering from Long Trail looked at home in an Oranjerboom glass.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine and More WOW! A big IPA. The ale poured a hazy light amber with an off white head and nice lacing down the glass. Floral hops and some pine resin greet you. The taste is more complex with hop bitterness in the upper mouth. This is nicely balanced IPA and one of the best I had recently. The invigorating sip comes to a perfectly timed close as the tongue-tingling bitterness scrubs the plate clean.

Typical IPA appearance, aroma is super floral hoppiness. Very balanced, smooth palate.

For people that like IPA I’m sure this is a good one, but I find it really too heavy, resin, sappy which makes it overpowering.

Bottle from variety pack. Yellow/orange and slightly cloudy. Two finger head. Nose is overwhelmingly piney hop. A little floral and a little spicy. Might be some orange peel too. Flavor is juicy hops, pine, funk, citrus zest. Decent stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Enjoyable brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle). Pours a clear light copper complexion with diminishing white head. Good glass lacing. Aroma is somewhat bready. The flavor is fairly simple. Well hopped without a high IBU bite. Not bad but kind of boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une bouteille. Une robe orangée. Un nez frais de fruits tropicaux. Une bouche qui goûte l’alcool, la poussière, le malt blond. Des saveurs des tropiques sont aussi au rendez-vous. Merci Vincent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz bottle with a bottling date of 07/13/15. Less than a month old. It pours an handsome looking amber-golden with a modest cream colored head. The nose brings out some feint caramel pale malts but then the tropical and floral hops take over and assume control. Light to medium body. Still smooth on the tongue. It exhibits the classic IPA characters with a nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops.
