2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours gold into a shaker. White head quickly recedes to hog rim. Butterscotch and resin aromas. Crisp with upfront sour malt and butterscotch turning to sour grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle picked up at SL. Decent aroma of some bitters hops. Light red-ish/orange color. Taste is...meh... Chlorine like, a harsh bitterness to it. I wanted to like this beer, but its not that good. I didnt finish the bottle. Overall sad to waste an IPA but the one wasnt for me..

Bottle.Pours a perfect amber/yellow color with a quickly dissapating white head.Nose is floral hops galore!Taste is citrus and pine hops that are mouthwatering but light to no malts to back them up.This reminds me of some of the Mikkeller IPA’s.Not a bad beer at all(I have heard sooo many bad things about this beer)Not to shabby actually....

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another wierd organic ale reminiscent of Wolavers organic but not quite. Smells of good generic beer(ale). Perfumy hops(like cheap generic perfume, this beer give my three favorite hop varietys a bad name?)) some slightly sweaty malt(a lil crystal, & lots o pale) not a bad ale, just screaming meh! Packs the 7.1% buzz otherwise it’s decent at best ,but pretty good and homegrown-like

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, best by 2/10. Medium creamy white head that leaves nice lacing, atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, orange, some orange blossom. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some catty, orange, lightly lemon sour in the finish. Medium body, some chewiness. Ironic to find myself drinking this in a Willimantic Brewing glass, because this reminds me of a couple of their IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. Bottle: Gusher! Aroma of Earthy hops, raw dough, Ringwood yeast, slight honey, and some sweeter malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a large, rocky, fluffy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of caramel malt, hops, Earth, and a little diacetyl from Shipyard’s Ringwood yeast obsession. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Earthy hop and slight caramel finish is heavily bitter, lingering, and dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Camp: Pours a pretty nice looking light amber with a frothy white head that lasts long enough for me to enjoy its presence. Aroma has definite floral hop notes, along with the obvious citrus element. Beer itself is moderately hoppy, yet very smooth. A bunch of citrus (lemon methinks) along with floral undertones. Easy drinking, and the high alcohol content is definitely a plus when ordering it at a bar and paying 6 bucks (fortunately my bartender fed me a few free ones... hehe). Solid beer, although the ’organic’ in the name is kind of pretentious.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, BBE November 2009, from Supreme Liquors, Cambridge MA, drunk on 24 October 2009. Marginally hazy amber colour. Loose off-white head. Distinct grassy hop aroma - moist and a touch clammy. Sweetish touches initially on the palate followed by a developing bitterness. Hops are grapefruit accented. Some balancing biscuity malt. Bitterness lingers into the finish and aftertaste. Light, slightly sharp mouthfeel. Not a blockbuster IPA but a good, clean, sraightforward drinking beer.
