On draft at NBBC. This is a nicely done APA. It hits you with a great hoppy aroma, and backs it up with a good flavor. This was very solid.

By far my favorite beer from the sampler. Friends at our table didn’t finish their full pint of this, so I got to enjoy even more. Aroma is of fresh hops, appearance is copper with a frothy head. Tastes like a good IPA should (surprisingly labeled as just a pale ale, especially considering that it is dry hopped). Really delicious smooth bitter finish.

Clear golden-amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel. Taste is medium sweet, caramel and grapefruit up top, finishing strong grapefruit. Decent bitterness but does not linger much. Medium body.

Draft at the brewpub.
Light copper pour with a fizzy white head. Hops are very present in this beer, aroma and flavor, very nice for a pale ale. Flavor lingered on the tongue for quite a bit, overall very good and very drinkable.

Beer number two on my flight at the brewpub on 11th March 2014. Comes a clear and good looking amber, white head. The aroma was leaning towards a citrus base with some toasted maltiness, as was the taste. Easy to drink and my second favourite of the eight beers I sampled while sitting in the sun outside the place with my wife and daughter.

Dark gold pour. Floral nose with slight citrus notes. Big "C" hop bite. This is your standard big hopped up west coast ipa.

Very solid for an APA, decent hop aroma and solid flavor - however it doesn’t linger long enough. Good for a sunny day in Newport.

On tap at NBBC. The best pale ale I have had in a while. Color was dark gold with an off white head. Aroma was nice with a good amount of citrus and flowers. Flavor was nicely balanced with flowers and citrus again in the finish. Nicely hopped for the style, and the dry hopping was not that pronounced. Sessionable and good.
