2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from a coworker. Poured a reddish amber body with a few large bubbles and a small to average sized foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, grains, toffee and a touch of citrus rind. The body is painfully thin with bubbly carbonation and a very watery feel. Flavor similar to the aroma minus the citrus rind, basically all malt. This one actually gets better once you get used to the watery body but still not that good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle (thanks again to Pam). Pretty similar fair to their amber here. The pour was a bit nicer with a more enticing soapy white head, and bright orange-red body. A fairly hoppy aroma with some woody notes and mixed citrus. Also, some cereal grains, light caramel, and that same slightly off motor oil note. Some carbonation in the body of this one, but it has a fairly soapy feel overall. Citrus, toasted cereal grains, and herbal notes in the flavor. Again, average.

This is a lighter pale ale, but in a good way. Some brief decent hop up front, then a light clean beer after that. Done look for this as a Stone alternative, it doesn’t have the balls or body to it, but it’s a light refreshing beer that has some good hop to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a translucent amber/orange. Nose is buttery and slightly fruity. The initial butterscotch burst unmasks a grapefruit like dry hop bite. Has a toasted biscuit flavor as well. The combined flavor work really well together. This is like a pale ale/ IPA hybrid. This beer has its own unique character which I like!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz brown screwtop bottle from the local Hannaford. Pours a nearly translucent amber-red body with an impressive somewhat rocky inch-thick head that dissipates after not too long. Grassy, piney, somewhat citrussy hops dominate the aroma with some caramel and butterscotch in the background. Hops bombard the mouth at first, piney and grassy more than anything else, with a presence of butterscotch and biscuit to help counterbalance the hops. Moderate in both body and carbonation, this beer is a fairly easy drinker. Not the best IPA I’ve had but a good one and definitely a solid choice for sure, and one I may get again.
