3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Comes in a medium copper color. Flavor is on the malty side at first but this one has lots of earthy-citrus bitterness on the back side. Very fresh tasting. Still can’t beat Cascades for a reliable hop profile.

Can from Brewtopia. Copper clear with small head. Caramel nuts peachy and citrus amber nuts grapefruit woody resin. Medium light. Definitely a throwback to 1995. Would have kicked ass then. Now, meh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg pour at Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is grassy, hay--all hops. Appearance is golden brown without sparkle, poor head retention and mild lacing. Taste is medium bitter. Palate is average carbonation with a little bit of a zing. Overall, there’s no complexity here, this is as advertised--"hoppy from start to finish." Since I’m not a huge fan of this (perhaps I’ve learned that I don’t really like Cascade hops), this beer wasn’t for me. But, if you like this sort of thing, you’re going to love this beer.

Pint at tavern. Came with little head, ok lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, taste is strong hop flavor of citrus, giving way to piney flavors that end in a grapefruit bitterness. Some very slight caramel malt flavors are in the background. Fin is is clean and crisp.

Tap at Milly’s in Manchester, NH. Decent enough IPA, but falls a bit short on character. Hops are a bit muted. Mild citrus hop and mild malt.

Draft @ brew pub. Nice amber with plenty of retention, leaves sheets of lace down the pint. Nose is caramel covered hops. Flavors of pine hops, caramel malt and a slightly lingering bitterness. The bitterness does stack up and get stronger as it warms. It was a great way to cap of my meal and brewer. Peter can sure brew some beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours an orange-brown with a small white head. Aroma of lots of caramel malt, very malty really with just a touch of hops. Flavor is also malty with some spicy bitter hops in the finish. Definitely good for a malt-forward IPA, although I’m always looking for the hops when I order an IPA...

Growler thanks to jcwattsrugger shared at the UFC Fight Night. Poured a nice orange/amber with hardly any head at all but great body. Aroma earth, dirty citrus rinds, slight alcohol. Smooth body with light carbonation. Flavor of earth, dirty caramel, and citrus.

I thought this was pretty solid for a local brew pub. Good citrus aroma, pleasant lingering bitterness and a clean finish. Pretty solid hop content and a refreshing palate. Try it if you’re in manchester!
