blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - MAY 28, 2010
On tap at brewpub in Granby, CT. Pours a light orange-copper color with a sweet fruity aroma. Balanced blend of hops and malt. Smooth finish with minimal aftertaste.

On tap at CBH. Very floral citrus. Similar to pale ale. Clean finishing. Not so much a big IPA but nice flavor.

bellco33 (295) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Poured from bottle into pint glass (6 month old bottle...damnit): pours golden red with a huge white head. Aroma malty and nutty. Taste pretty malty with a decent amount of hops, definitely tastes like an old IPA. Little piney, little boozy. Medium to full body. I think on tap this would be much better.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Sharp resinous hop aroma, certainly east coast style if not old world. Dark orange color. Not very bitter at all, instead you find a saccharine sweetness. Thicker, for IPA anyway, body, sticks around on the palate for awhile. Somewhere between the average pale ale and the older pre-hop-craze IPAs.

mkgrenwel (567) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Somewhat dark amber color. Muddy but opaque. White fluffy head with solid lacing. Aroma is lightly estery, slight hops. Malt is a bit nutty and overly sweet. Not really overpowering or too much malt, but just too sweet. Seems to be an overuse of crystal malt. Hop finish is faint and forgettable. To be fair, they do make it clear this is an English style IPA, and it lives up to that expectation. Itís just not an exciting beer. That sweetness does just keep coming and become almost cloying. Almost a cinnamon type spice that comes with it at times. Not my favorite IPA and really not something Iíd attempt to acquire again.

BroSpud (1684) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Large bottle with Cambridge House IPA "The Original" label, brewed in Williamsburg, MA. This is a pretty decent IPA but Iím confused, is it from MA or CT? Pours a light amber with a white head and alot of lacing.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden/orange color with a super thick white head. The head is thick with plenty of bubbles forming throughout the snifter. Aroma is of hops, spices, wood, some citrus, soap, malt, and grain. Thicker palate with a nice carbonation feel. Flavors include hops, grain, earthiness, orange peels, caramel, and malts. Leaves an earthy malt and hop finish. Very impressive brew. I might have to try some more from these guys.

blklab2007 (1951) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle poured a light brown in color with a big thick one finger tan head that held on very well. Aroma has resins, pine, light citrus and malts. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation fairly high. Flavor has quite a bit of a malted side, mild bitterness, resins, and light citrus. Born on date reads 0401 but this beer just arived at the store this week and had a big end cap with their bottled offerings. Perhaps that is why it was priced so low.

johnnnniee (2293) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Comes to the table a hazy gold with a small white head that leaves lots of lace. Nice sweet caramel and light fruit with aromas of resinous pine and grapefruit pith. The flavor is sweet caramel, light fruits and a touch of diacytyl. Before the resinous citrus pith onslaught commences. Its a touch bitter at times. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. English American IPA hybrid that does neither very well.

LilBeerDoctor (3441) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear dirty orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale bready malts, floral hops, citrus. Flavor of toasted malt, garlicky hops, earthy hops, and bitterness in the finish. Simple, but nice. Hops are subtle, but still powerful. Good IPA. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Clear copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and roast malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
