3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the brew Pub. House chalice shows a cloudy orange yellow color. Thin white with some lace. Nose is lemons, hops and light yeast. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit malt, lots of citrus hops, (grapefruit mango, lemons) with a crisp dry moderately bitter finish. Bitterness lingers just slightly. Overall it ok, not going to get you real excited but you shouldn’t be disappointed. It will get the job done if you want an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a one finger white head and good lace. Aroma is lemon rind and orange peel with a faint caramel malt backbone. Taste is predominately citrus. Slightly bitterness. Mildly bitter finish with an average body. Good, but not exceptional. Nice flavor, but one diminsional.

Had on tap at the source. Pours into Portsmouth tulip a a sandy golden orange with a lacy, trim whitish head. Smells instinctively of latté, fried rice, pilsener malt, hint of yeast, brief citrus zest, millet and hops. Tastes wonderfully, albeit not entirely altogether balanced, of American hops, kilned barley, wheat grain, lemon juice, leather and earth. Ends yeasty, flowery, and bitter with notes of tapioca, hard-boiled eggs, caramel and wine lees and more hops. Drinkable, and arguably the best Project X thus far, but still not a sensation.
