3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly clear copper to hazelnut pour with a 1 finger, off white head. Aroma is sweet fruity and floral citrus, light pine, light grapefruit, toast, caramel, toffee, grass and biscuit. Flavor is deep caramel, some toffee and biscuit up front giving way to hay, planty hops, lots of sweet and bitter citrus, grass, pine, toast and fruity yeast. Medium body, off dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Good stuff, nice example of a complex, but citrus and caramel forward IPA.

Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Good hoppy pale ale.

Pours a copper color with a thick, lasting head. Aroma is minimal with just hints of bread and citrus. Taste has more of a bitter start that I expected from the aroma. The malt and citrus bring some sweetness to balance the hops before a nice, bitter finish. Overall a pretty classic English / East coast IPA profile with a touch of citrus added just like the label says.

Tap at New Bohemia. Really attractive copper color with a limited amount of head. Very fresh taste. Sweeter than expected bit with ample hops. Surprisingly not as citrusy as I thought. A smooth option with a pretty solid finish. Kind of your standard IPA. If nothing better on your way to the US on some old school pilgrim boat, this is OK.

On tap at The Free House Pub. Amber color. White head. Citrus and floral aroma and taste. A good mix of orange and pine hops with enough malt to keep things drinkable. Dry and bitter finish. Lingering hop flavor.

Pours a unique peach tinged light amber, with a brief white head. Aroma is slightly citrus. Flavor is also unique... IPA with orange peel instead of grapefruit. Dry, slightly bitter and bright. Pleasant surprise. (What food to pair?)

Amber pour with a nice off-white head. Nice citrus nose. Big citrus hops in the taste with a huge bitter citrus finish. This is an excellent way to prevent scurvy.
