3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy and fruity hops aroma with tropical fruit and a bit of pine. Clear light bronze under a dense, off-white foam. Dry and moderately bitter taste that is biscuity and with plenty of bitter grapefruit peel hops. Also some apricot/peach notes. Light body, medium to high carbonation plays off the dry feel to make this very hoppy beer pretty refreshing, lingering grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish.

Bottle from Albany, best before 2/23/13. Pours golden amber capped by a slight cream colored head that quickly reduces to a light lacing cap. Addition amounts of lacing coat my glass. Nose of cracker, flowers, and resin. A solid malt body holds together the bitterness well. Hop flavor is a bit muddled and takes a back seat to the overall malt and bitterness. Body is medium but feels a bit thin at times.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Tap pours golden yellow with white foam. The aroma is light floral fruity hops and golden malts. The flavor is grainy pale malt, maybe a touch of pilsner with a bold golden bittering resinous dried flower and light orange citrus hopped kick. Not a lot of depth but a decent brew.

Light floral aroma, like a spring meadow or some poetic crap. Slightly hazy deep orange. Bluntly bitter taste, sweet mango kick on finish. Ringing yet almost sessionable. Old school bitter-type IPA.

12 ounce bottle from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops with a toffee malt backbone. The taste is citrus, tea, pale caramel malts. Lemon finish. Medium bodied. Interesting, different, pretty good.
