Nice IPA, a little on the sweet side in my opinion. I wonder if they are using an english ale yeast. Try it, you will like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mayflower Compact Variety Pack, bought in P-Town, drank at home. Pours a hazy golden amber with a huge fluffy head. Aroma of pineapple juice. The taste is sweet with dank earthy hops. Plenty of tropical fruit flavors as well. Lightly hopped, barely enough to be categorized an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized yellow tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again. Quite quaffable it is.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into my Founders snifter. Got this as an extra in a trade, Thanks Gushue!
A: Poured a perfect amber with great clarity. Pinkish tones come through when held to the light. Even after a light pour a close to three finger head still sprung up. Off white with good retention. Slowly bubbled away leaving a wonderful webbing along the glass.
S: Some pine-like citrus hits the nose. Some caramel pokes through the malts that are through the middle.
T: Some nice grassy hops with a nice caramel backbone. The malts are present with a nice mix of bitter citrus.
M: Light to medium bodied nice oily mouth. Highly carbonated.
O: More malty than I expected, but still a decent IPA.

Draft at Roo bar in Plymouth, MA killing time prior to a wedding. Pours copper with fluffy head and nice hoppy citrus nose. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, malt, caramel, grass, and floral. Medium bodied and we’ll carbonated, a nice straightforward ipa with 7% abv as a bonus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Tiny bit of a gusher. Pours a hazy orange color with a large creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big caramel malts with floral hops. The taste is floral, minty and tropical hops with a caramel malt backbone and strong notes of candied citrus. Medium bodied, very slight lingering bitterness. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. It pours a medium amber with a kind of bronze tone and a moderate head. On the nose the brief note of malts gives way to a floral hop character. The body is medium and has a creamy texture. The taste ends with a bountiful bitterness that is balance and non-distracting. Nice beer.

Draft at KJ’s in Newport, RI. Soft, creamy, with a few tastes of pine an citrus thrown into the mix. A favorite in Newport, I’m happy to have made friends with it before I had to leave.

Caramel, fruit, and some flowery hops in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and malty, with fruit, pine, and spicy hops in the finish. I love IPAs that start with a nice base beer and don’t overwhelm you with hops in the finish, and this certainly fits the bill.
