On Tap @ Saltgrass. Tasted on 11/12/14. It was a dark golden in color with a white medium head. The aroma was pretty strong with citrus, grapefruit & some pine. The flavor was slightly more subtle than the aroma was but had a similar flavor profile. Overall a pretty decent IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, clear amber hue, eggshell head, light to medium body, minimal hope aroma, not much to it as far as any distinct hop characteristic, but drinkable for what it is

Attractive label, making it seem like a slightly more cutting edge micro than the older but still somewhat nimble Sam Adams. Decent nose, but not as fresh as some IPAs. The flavor trundles along without a big wallop at the finish, and that was fine with me, but it sort of seems like another IPA. Bottle.

I drank this last time I ate at Saltgrass. It is a fragrant brew bursting with hop aroma. The color is a light amber and the body is medium. Not as bitter as might be expected from the thick aroma. The alcohol is not over present, rather it is well masked. A tasty brew with red meat.

Pretty impressive for SA! I mean this isn’t really a west coast IPA (still not enough over-the-top citrus presence), but it is really good, and I’d definitely order it if I saw it on tap at a chain restaurant or something.

Enjoyed a few of these at White Rock Pizza in Woodbury, Vermont. Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a white frothy-bubbly head, and sticky pacthy lacing. Aromas of citrus, honey and grass. Nice bitterness with wetness and a light dry finish. Mild grainy taste with light citrus zest. A pretty nice easy-going West Coast style IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very clean orange color with a modest, white creamy head. Aroma has a large grapefruit citrus nose with a moste orange and light pine kick at the end. Flavor is a strong grapefruit and orange combo with a nice bitterness at the finish. Body is light with a sharp carbonation feeling which helps to deliver the aroma nicely. Overall a good IPA.
