2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of pineapple, starfruit, and bread. Pours hazy golden with a great head. Tastes like a homebrewed ipa after a week. Malt heavy with pineapple and biscuit.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of earthy and citrusy hops with a touch of sulfur and a solid shot of light caramel. The flavor is malty with some hops and a bunch of ethanol. Earthy citrus hop bite countered with bready caramel and a present enough shot of alcohol and astringency. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bitter mouthfeel. Mediocre IPA, nothing really wrong here, but nothing too exciting either.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A bland sweet blond IPA with
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed relatively fresh approximately one month after purchase from a New-Hampshire beer store.
The look: Clear blond body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose has a somewhat shy grassy/fruity hoppiness (by 8.5% IPA standards), the hopping has a dank character and sits over sweet pastry. Taste has sweet bready cereals like commercial white bread and refined white sugar. Dried fruits, candied fruits, sweet canned fruits. The fragile hopping is crushed by the sugary fruity flavors, there is a mild bitterness but it is just not enough. There isn’t anything offensive with this beer, it is just very very very boring. The first beer I buy from this brewery and I’m not impressed, I’ll be more careful from now on, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice sha… oooh cool, I just got an email from a Nigerian prince!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this in 22ozer at the squam lake inn in holderness. Pours a dark golden color. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, a hint of sweet malt and belgian yeast. There’s a bitterness but it’s cancelled by a sweet malt taste. The yeasty taste and sweetness take over, with a bit of bitter citrus hops at the end. An interesting combination of two styles, but I didn’t love it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 500 ml bottle. Second batch I believe. It pours a cloudy golden-amber tone with about a half inch of head that settles down after a few moments. It leaves a light lacing along the way. There are plenty of hops in the aroma but there are also fruity esters like banana and pear. Not much maltiness in the aroma. The body is pretty good and weighs in at about medium. The hops are noticeable from the first sip, to the tongue swirl, and down the throat. Yet the hops are not overwhelming to the point of pucker-up bitterness. The fruity esters of the aroma are more muted. There is a vague sweet maltiness but the overall flavor centers around the hops. Yet at the same time they do not take over the entire thing. A nicely balanced beer.
