2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mildly citric nose with cat pee and sweat sock traits. Malt is swampy, twangy, tastes a lot like a beginner homebrew IPA. Sweetish finish with not enough bittering hops. Hazy amber, dull, smallish head.

Murky amber color out of the bottle with a thin, whispy white head. Some perfumy and citrus hop notes in the nose. Strong malty backbone of stale bread with lots of grapefruit rind and applesauce flavors. Pretty standard IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Matunuck Oyster Bar - Matunuck, RI. Dank, rich, lemony aroma that nicely highlights the Amarillo and Simcoe in a way that I enjoy. Flavors are solid too, although I think the coarse Nugget bitterness comes on a little strong. This is very drinkable and surprised me. The hoppiness was at a flavor level that I would seek out and it wasn’t too sweet nor too flawed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of dank hoppiness along with a touch of sweet fruit. Pine/citrus and a little bit of toasted malt underneath with a little bit of orange peel as well. Lots of fruit and a bit of soft sweetness in addition to that. Chewy resinous flavour with a touch of fruit. Clean and chewy but a little bit of sweetness coming through on the back. Tasty stuff really.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber/orange with a 1/2" off white head that lasts. Aroma is earthy with pine resin and light grains. Flavor is initially quite bitter & astringent, but there is a nice semi sweet malt profile that makes itself known after the first couple sips. Smooth, moderate bodied palate. Nice, solid IPA, I’ll buy this again.
