On draft at The Mooring in Newport, Rhode Island. Hoppy and somewhat fragrant, though citrus notes missing. Excellent local craft IPA to enjoy with lobster on a beautiful sunny day in Newport.

A: Hazy Golden Straw/Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Decent Lacing S: Malty, Mild Piney T: Crackers, Bread, Piney M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Dry, Bitter Overall, an average IPA, somewhat weak nose and the taste starts malty and the hops creep up on you in the back end. Drinkable but not mind blowing.

Solid flagship. Nice hop and alcohol edge. Well crafted but lacking when stood up against dogfish and the other biggies.

A: Very light floral and citrus notes, this beer does not offer much in in the aroma department. A: Hazy gold with a frothy finger-width head. T: Strong resinous notes, medium bitterness, light grapefruit and hint of lemon. The taste is definitely surprising given the lack of this beerís aroma. P: Medium body, sticky texture with lively carbonation. Finish is long and quite bitter. Overall: This would be a good IPA for someone who is unaccustomed to the style (my girlfriend avoids hoppy beers like vampires avoid the sun but I got her to try this one... she tolerated it). I enjoyed it but I prefer much stronger, fuller-bodied double IPAs like SNís Hoptimum. I ate rosemary sourdough with humboldt fog cheese while drinking this beer and I realize that these flavors are not compatible with this style. Iíll give it another chance in the near future with a lighter summery meal.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at the source. Hazy golden colir, thick white gead, solid lacing. Aroma of flowers, pine, grass. Taste us citrus, tropical fruits, subtle scallions. Tasty.

bbbeer (543) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Hazy orange-brown with small off white head. Aroma citrus, pine, malt. Medium body. On the maltier side. Grapefruit hops in the finish. Good balance, not overly interesting but decent IPA.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Caramel, grass, citrus, and flower in the aroma. Taste starts sweet then finishes with citrus, pine, and hop bitterness. Nothing extraordinary, but a nice summer beer with more flavor than most.
