3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This IPA pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus with a touch of sweetness. A medium to lighter bodied IPA. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are floral and citrusy. Mildly bitter IPA. Perhaps a little thin but a very decent IPA. It’s a little mild in comparison to most PNW IPAs but not bad. Aroma is soft and full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. This is a decent IPA - very sessionable. Good safe balance of hops and malts. Middle-of-the-road in a good way.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Squatters. Clear orange pour with white foam. Grass and orange peel hop aromas at first. Kind of sweet and peachy, too. There’s a nice bit of bread, a hint of caramel, and some light pine. It’s not bad, but sweeter than I usually like in an IPA...still, good citrus qualities and some nice hints of fruit in there. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange-brown pour with a two finger, creamy off white head that has great retention and leaves some grainy lacing. Aroma is caramel, toast, light nutty notes, bright, sweet citrus notes and light berry notes. Flavor is caramel, toast, husky grain, spicy and citrus hops and mineral notes. A little pine and light medicinal notes come out as it warms. Light to medium body, medium, sharp carbonation, fairly dry feel throughout with a surprising hop acid bite, despite not tasting or smelling all that hoppy, or being all that bitter. Decent overall.
