2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Hazy, light copper-hued body with a whitish head.
Smell: Smells of pale malts, faint sweet-scented caramel, as well as floral and pith notes, though not particularly robust or aromatic.
Taste: Pale malts, a bit of modestly sweet caramel with a hint of toasted French bread. White grapefruit, lemon, and some slight florals, though, as with the aroma, it’s not quite bold, more ho-hum, really. Medium-plus bitterness. Very faintly resinous on the back end closing out with a flat, bitterish, lightly pithy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: An acceptable albeit very average IPA. Again with the low carbonation here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. A clean, dry, unostentatious but quite satisfying IPA. Bright orange pour with a billowy head. Fairly pungent nose, dry citrus rind and a kiss of flowers. Mouthfeel is - as per usual with ML’s beers, I came to realize - a bit insubstantial. But the beer is flavorful and refreshing and went down well on several occasions over a warm Halloween weekend.
