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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, from 6 pack, somewhere around $7-8ish, poured into 16oz tulip glass
Aroma: light citrus, piney hops
Appearance: Golden to orange, big white head, cloudy, with floaties
Taste: Medium bitter
Palate: light body, dry finish, sticky texture
Overall: Not bad for an IPA, but nothing special either. Easy to drink with an American IPA type of hop selection. Some citrus with some pine. Nice dry finish. Just feels like it’s lacking something.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a cloudy orange with eggshell head and some ultra-fine sediment at the bottom. Smells of bitter hops with a big bittersweet malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad.
