3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Lightly hazed yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Pretty good retention. The aroma is a delicate blend of toffee, honey, grapefruit and Mandarin orange. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and radiant carbonation. Leans slightly on the sweet side of balance. Some mashy and toffee aspects. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter, then sort of dries out and fades away. Bottle provided by brokephibroke!

Tap @ brewery. Golden yellow orange appearance with a white head that disappears pretty quickly. Bushy hoppy nose. Pretty bitter hoppy flavor. The hoppiness is a mild bushy, piney flavor. Pretty mild yet refreshing IPA.

"another solid beer in the "regulars" of the NB line. lively but light hoppy aroma and flavor, with the honey sweetness coming out just enough - a little more in the flavor. great summer beer."
