2008-10-22. Orange-amber body with a modest off white head. (3+) Aroma is a bit odd, dilute grainy character. Mild hops. Flavour is similar, dilute grains, touch astringent, muted citrus hops. Average palate. Do not care for it over all. Bottle shared by Blankboy

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of toasty grainy malts and a touch of peppery citrusy hops. Body starts with average fullness and mild malty sweetness with a good bittering hop balance before a drier, peppery bittersweet finish. An ok IPA, but could use more of an assertive fresh hop character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (22oz). Shared by blankboy with me garthicus, jerc and mabel. Clear light copper, average off-white frothy head. Dry, leafy, slightly burnt caramel malt. Taste follows - slightly herbal, oddly sweet - a bit like an over-hopped bitter. Slick, average carbonation, a little weak.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Pours a three-fingered thick cream head that slowly fades to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Flavor is a typical IPA, hints of caramel but quickly to hoppy bitterness at finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Overpriced at $10.99 for a 22oz bottle from Barb’s Beer Emporium Concord, NH.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle poured a medium amber color with a thin off white head. aroma has fresh grass, herbs, light pine hops, faint citrus, and something odd that must be the rye. mouth feel is lighter with low carbonation. flavor has the bitter side of the hops, minerals, again the rye that seems misplaced, and that herbal grass. seems light on the sweetness and the citrus falls short. perhaps this is an old bottle but they just made it to Connecticut recently, although the stout they sent here was already a year old so who knows.

22. Thanks, 46er3498! Pours crystal clear dark amber with a thick, pillowy platinum blonde head. CO2, aluminum, and DMS on the nose, along with some mild herbal hop and rye sour. Medium body, active carb though not much of it. Bready, biscuity mid-palate with a bit of piney resin near the end.

Bomber. Pours a dark copper brown with a thin white head. Smells of pine resin, citrus. Tastes earthy with some mild bitterness. This is the only beer of their I haven’t enjoyed.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber. Pale orange beer with a thin white head. Aroma is very lightly hoppy but this is mostly pale malt on the nose. A lightly crackery maltiness and a touch of sweet amber malts as well. There is just a hint of earthy hops and a touch of fruit. Flavour is quite bland and not all that interesting at all. These guys can do much better than this.
