Medium pale, medium head. Medium everything. The beer does nothing exciting, but its pleasant and has no noticable flaws. Easy drinking, plenty of hop flavor and aroma, good bitterness level. Clean finish. Just a touch watery on the body - I was thinking this was a PA of about 5% ABV before I saw this page.

Pours a three-fingered white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts and finishes hoppy, true to style, lingering hoppy aftertaste. Forced to buy since it is brewed in NH. $1.50 for a 12 oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.

Tap. Amber colour, thin whtie head. Aroma is quite frsh Woody/spicy hops, some orange marmalade citrus character as well. Earthy malts, with a touch of sulphur and light yeastiness. Fresh British hops, orange, spicy hops and earthy malts. A bit of breadiness as well. More English pale than IPA, but itís a decent, easy-drinking pale ale.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Not a very good IPA...the hops werenít right and the smell was pretty putrid. The pour was a hazy gold with a grapefruitiness to the flavor.

Hazy golden pour with a white head. Mild aroma of hops. Ordinary and unremarkable flavor of hops.

Something isnít quite right in this IPA -- thereís an off flavor, but Iím not sure quite what it is. The bitterness is there, and lingers, but is strange. Nice appearance otherwise.

@ brewpub. Good nose, citrusy. Grapefruit/lemon/orange. Ok head that faded to nothing. Clean brownish orange color. Bitter flavors. Grapefruit with some rind. Medium body, sticky syrupy mouthfeel, bitter,grapefruit, finish Its a bitter one. Call it one dimensional, but in a way I like.
