Pours deep amber into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Soft with dark caramel and mango upfront turning to citrus and resin in the lasting finish.

Mini-growler from Leary’s in Newburyport. A clear golden color. Thin white head. Good carbonation. Clean malty-spice aromas and flavors. Drinks more like a Pale Ale than a true IPA. Some pine, some citrus, with a light lingering bitterness.

Draught @ Michael’s Harborside: This one pours a clear, golden color. There was a thin white head that left some lacing. It has a fairly typical IPA nose: pine and grapefruit hops. They weren’t overpowering. Not much else coming thru. The taste is good. Sharp, but not overly bitter. Grapefruit hop taste is predominant. Could be a touch smoother, but not bad at all.

Dark pour. Amberish, but more brown than red. Golden highlights. Creamy off white head. Fresh dry hopped aroma. Pine and orange peel. Taste is on the malty side. Tons of caramel and pine. Good balance. This is just OK. Dime a dozen.

Had on tap at the Grog earlier today. $5.50 for the full pint. Pours urine pale yellow with which a trim, whitish-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of cabbage, lime meat, cherry tomatoes, minerals, and aged hops. Musty and weird. Uninteresting, but drinkable. Meh: I’ve had worse.

Growler from WillRunForBeer... thanks! Pours a clean straw color with nice foamy white head with good lacing. Awesome juicy citrus/grapefruit aroma... similar to sucks. Medium mouthfeel, pine up front with a mouthcoating resiny mouthfeel. Fairly bitter finish. Really appreciate the chance to try this one.

Taster at the source. Pours orange gold with a frothy off white head. Aroma screams grapefruit, tangerine hops. Some grass in there too. Flavor does not dissapoint. Lots of juicy hop, not too bitter. Finish leaves oily resin bitterness on the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Amesbury Ale House. Nose of floral hops, fresh grass and pine. This brew is a nicely done classic IPA. What I smell is exactly what the flavor reveals. Light bitterness and a somewhat long duration. Nice balance of ingredients. Malts and hops play off each other nearly perfect. Dough malt, grassy hops and notes of pine. Nothing like a local fresh IPA on draft. Very nicely done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super Fresh sample from the Brewery. Aroma is pine, sweet grass, and a pop of juicy citrus. Dry and crisp, this is a nice refreshing ale. Flavor is a continuation of the aroma, citrus punchiness with underlying bitter pine sap. Pretty good - especially so fresh.
