Slightly hazy orange yellow color with thick white lacing. Floral aroma with a slight grapefruit feel. Medium mouthful with a lingering floral hop feel. Good cooler weather beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From BOtM club. Golden color, slightly hazy, nice looking frothy white head. Faint citrus floral pine aroma. Hops right up front but finish is very earthy and green and grassy. Malt is fairly subdued. The start of the flavor is pretty promising but the finish is not crisp. The overall approach to this IPA is on the lighter side.

Pours golden in color with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma. Pretty generic. Medium body, short finish. Forgettable.

Draught. Golden copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of pepper and piney hops. Nice even, medium bodied taste of pine, pepper, malt and faint citrus with a decent bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A- Body is a very cloudy translucent burnt orange hue. Pours with a sticky, foamy 1-2 finger off white head. Head has perfect retention at 1/2 finger and tons of lacing is left all the way down the glass.
S- Nose is very mild and somewhat dull. Its hard for me to discern anything but herbal and earthy hops.
T- Earthy hops are the highlight of the flavor upfront with a mild pale malt backbone. The finish is slightly herbal and a hint of pine resin sneaks in as well before a mild, but long-lasting hop bitterness kick in.
P-Medium tingly carbonation and a medium weight body that is rich, smooth, slightly oily, and creamy.
O-I’m sure this has faded somewhat from what it was fresh...this brew is one of the best looking IPAs I have seen in awhile and the mouthfeel is excellent. Flavor is above average-but nothing exceptional. Its certainly smooth and very drinkable but only somewhat enjoyable. Great to try a NE local IPA
