3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery: Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly floral, slight pine. Taste is more of the same, but is well balanced with the sweetness of the malt and the slight hop bitterness. This is a non-IPA drinkers IPA and is a pretty solid one. I like it better than the base Harpoon IPA. Light to medium body, decent beer!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Bright hay color, but virtually opaque. Thin but sticky top. The aroma is subtle and just hints at some fresh mown flowers. The beer is pretty tart, not unlike lemonade, with a bubbly, champagne-like consistency. Quite tart. (#5815, 10/13/2014)

12oz bottle pours a hazy golden/orange with a medium white head. Sweet malt aroma with some bug spray. Mild taste, light hop with caramel malt. Not offensive, forgettable but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Pours a slight hazy golden colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and foamy lace. Hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit and pine. Fruity taste with the citrus and mild bitterness creating some light dryness in the finish. A nice middle of the range IPA with a micro-feel.

On tap at The White Horse (oldest tavern in America, Est. 1673). The beer was actually labeled as their house beer 1673. Clear amber pour with a white head. Floral hop bouquet. Floral and mineral hop notes with a sturdy malt backbone. Average body and mouthfeel. Good balance. A solid session IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-21-12 -
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head faded slowly over time to leave a moderate level of lacing on the side of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of grapefruit citrus and pine hop and mixed with a biscuit smelling base.
Taste – The taste begins smooth and malty. This bready and caramel sweet flavor is soon meet with pine hop flavors that start out on the very subtle side and grow in strength as the taste moves on. As the pine grows stronger, other hop flavors of a light citrus and floral nature also some to the tongue. Overall the transitions are all very smooth and in the end leave a pleasant hop flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side for its strength, with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The creamier body helps the nice flavor transitions, as well as allows the hop flavors to really soak in.
Overall – This is a nice, more session like IPA with very smooth characteristics overall. Pretty good!!!

12 ounce bottle. Hazy golden color topped by a thick rocky white head. Fruity toasted malt aroma with a hint of citrus. Bitter toasted malt flavor upfront. Slightly peppery and citrusy hops in mid taste. Finish is dry with more citrus hops. Decent as American IPA’s go.
