3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from...Whole Foods? Veiled orange with a low white collar. Unusual aroma for a US IPA with banana and lemon candy; grass, coriandered perfume, green herb. Some rocket leaves and pissed-on bridleway . White candy sugar Belgian banana and pepper flavour; sappy hop, grass, marmalade. Good brew, bizarrely Belgian-accented with the impression of spicing or lowlands yeast and hops. Neat cordial. Doesn’t fit any template of US IPA yet encountered, but a ringer for no end of tangy Belgians.

Out of the bottle, apparently past it’s date, carbonation is moderate and the first few sips carried a citrusy taste but past that all I get is bitter hoppy flavor. Fans of hops may enjoy this, but I’m not.

Bottle. Pours orange, mostly clear. Smells very faintly of the forest. Taste follows with that pine flavor. A little bubbly but a nice smooth IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a hazy orange colored body with a one finger white head that died within thirty seconds. There was barely any lacing left and very little carbonation was seen rising.
The smell has some light pine and hops but there really wasn’t much there.
The taste has a sweet yet spicy blend that tingled in my mouth, not bad. The pine and hops came out with some lighter fruits in the taste.
On the palate, she sits about medium with a good smoothness. It had a moderate carbonation in the mouth.
Overall, this was a decent brew. I might have it again.

Pours a hazy golden/amber with a small, but frothy head. Nice balance and a solid IPA, but not complex.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, light fruits, light citrus, apple skins. Flavor of pale malts, light fruits, bitter hops. This is an English IPA, so not as hoppy, but it’s definitely a solid beer.

Aroma is quite subdued out of the bottle. The palate is stern, but not robust. Not a memorable IPA, but not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Was on tap at Spatz in Providence. Earthy, dirty, bland, herbs, lacking citrus. Definitely a British style attempt, but even knowing that, it seems pretty bland to me.
