3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light, fruity, hoppy aroma. The flavor is a bit too sweet for me. A bit syrupy. Overall not bad.

6-pack caché entre 2 lots de Bud dans un Sunoco du Vermont. À mi-chemin entre une ipa et une dia. Bien houblonné, amertume moyenne, goût sucré. Pas pire.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit hop nose, flavor is grapefruit hops and some caramel malt starts to balance. Not nearly as hoppy as their Profanity ale. Gift.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Right side of the neck of the bottle reads:
021715, I think that’s born on.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden orange with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a good minute. Light stringy lacing sticks and slides into the beer.
The smell takes a lemon zest to cross over a delicate grassy sweetness. Light caramel maltiness balances nicely.
The taste has a good balance of sweet to bitter to zest. There’s a nice sweet to zesty citrus aftertaste but no finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs moderately with a good bitterness pounding appropriately.
Overall, as an EIPA, its a bit different as the English side of the aroma doesn’t really show, but hey, I’m thinking more AIPA fans might like this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle, 4/13/15. Hazy amber, medium sized foamy off-white head. Good retention. Aroma of minty, herbal hops, eucalyptus, caramel malt. The taste is citrus hops, tea, minty notes, eucalytus, caramel, candied citrus. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, a bit medicinal. Definitely an odd one. 800th IPA rating!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had it straight from the bottle. The bottle looked pretty sharp. It had a nice hop aroma and taste. The flavor and mouth feel were nice and full. It distinguished itself from your everyday IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom NH. Aroma is herbs, piney hops with hint of natural gas smell and late fruit. Appearance on first pour is clear golden yellow pour with significant sparkling, one finger-width frothy-creamy head wiht good retention and nice lacing. Second pour yielded cloudiness from sediment (it is unfiltered, after all). Taste is mildly sweet fruity start and moderately bitter end. Palate is light-bodied with thin texture, pretty flat in terms of carbonation (how can this be with that much sparkle?) and faint lingering bitter finish. Overall, a nice-looking beer with somewhat interesting though not entirely pleasant aroma, average taste and forgettable palate.
