Nice floral aroma and a spicy, slightly resiny hopping. A fairly bold IPA that clocks in at a reasonable 5.25%, very nice.

Great color, a bit cloudy. Smells fairly strong hop scents, but those smells don't follow through in the hop flavors. After taste is almost malty

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not bad for a session IPA. Great appearance with a large fluffy frothy long lasting head, and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy honey amber. Aroma is hops, pine resin, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, Bittersweet up front with a bit of carbonic tang, some off flavors in the finish. Body is a tad thin and carbonation a bit light. I recall having this before and it being better.

I have always understood that an IPA was, by definition, a higher ABV brew meant originally to withstand lengthy travel to India by ship, but here we have a low ABV ale calling itself an IPA. Odd. Never before seen this brand here in Massachusetts, so I gave it a shot. Poured into an English pub glass, it smells good, retains a head, tastes good enough and has a nice hoppy finish. Decent, but undistinguished APA. Might be tempted to buy this again if it was cheaper.
