i try to be as objectional about english ipa’s as possible, and most american english-style ipa’s are really good up front, its the second half of the pint that gets a little annoying. once your palate gets used to the hops, its the malts that start to get that sickly sweet, almost nutrisweet flavor that is in no way appetizing or satisfying, it just tastes artificial.

On tap at the Kennebunk location. Pours yellow/gold with a 1" off white head. Head slowly recedes leaving subtle rings of lace. Aroma is solid grapefruit giving way to citrus hops. Soft on the palate and finishes dry. Flavor is grapefruit with some bitterness. A nice solid IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice slightly cloudy orange/copper coloured body with a dense, thick tan head that leaves a pretty ugly lace. Aroma of fresh grassy and piney hops with a touch of grapefruit, pineapple and resin. Medium-bodied; Assertive piney and floral hoppiness with some light malt to support and a touch of light apricot sweetness, but mostly an unabashed hoppiness - which is okay. Aftertaste is mild, only some light bitterness shows through - fairly one-dimensional. Overall, a decent IPA, not great, but showing some good hoppy notes and a touch of other character. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Colonial Spirits in Acton, Massachusetts on 23-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 30-November-2010.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma and flavor a little bland and too bitter for this style. I like hops but this combination just doesn’t work as well as most IPAs. Still better than a lot of beers though.
