3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: Nice and pretty well made, but noting all that special. Decent balance and fairly easy to drink. Packed with flavor for a fairly low ABV beer. Not complex, but pretty well put together. Really hope the start can more of their styles.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear at first and then hazy by the bottom of the can, light brownish orange with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma wasn’t as intense as the flavor. It had very light caramel and grain; moderate citrus hops; and lighter pine hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, moderate to heavily bitter and lightly acidic with an average to long duration. There was citrus hops, ceramel malt, pine hops, grapefruit, lemon and orange hops. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and sticky on the lips with moderately fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly metallic finish.

Tap at the brewery. Medium amber body with a pillowy beige head that quickly dissipates into specks of foam littered about the top. Aroma of cascade hops. Flavor is great; just the right amount of hops balanced by some doughy malts. With so many brewers trying to be the most extreme, this beer is a wonderful reminder that one need not be wild to make a great beer. It is sublimely satisfying and superbly drinkable. A true winner!

On tap-at the Brewery. Clear copper color w/a slight off white head. Nice aroma of hops w/a little bit of roasted malt. Had a nice flavor of hops without being overpowering. Had some roasted malt flavor as well. Only a slight metalic aftertast kept it from being rated higher. Long finish.

On tap at washington street ale house. Poured a light copper color with small white head. Aroma was hops and a roastedness to it. Well balanced, had a bizarre funk in the finish.

On tap at Cromwells. Red/amber color, generous frothy head and very nice lacing. Citrusy hops aroma. Strong orange flavors dominate up front, with roasted malts in the background. Resiny hops win out in the end with a crisp and dry finish. Preferred this to the pilsener.

Darft @ Cromwell’s Tavern. Pours a golden/copper color with a huge frothy white head. The aroma citrusy hops with some mild grassiness. Flavors are sweet clemetine oranges, with some light malts and a light, resiny hop finish. A solid APA.

Pours a cloudy orange brown with a big white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste are of earthy hops and bready malts. Nicely balanced and solid for sure, but not something I'd seek out.

Yellow-orange in color, clear, has a creamy white head. Hoppy aroma with a light malt balance. Smooth and sessionable; enjoyable yet forgettable. The style doesn’t do much for me.
