burg326 (5594) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle shared at RBWG, poured an orangish color with aromas of citrus, malt, pine and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are the same light pine and citrus hops, light bitter aftertaste, nice beer overall.

DiarmaidBHK (5668) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Sampler at brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Notes of citrus and pine on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not spectacular.

MaBeer1972 (2143) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Can from Julio’s. Pours out slightly hazy light golden color. Frothy white head settles to a medium lace. Flavor is spicy and earthy with subtle fruity notes. I suspect a Belgian yeast. Quite dry with decent bitterness.

Niko100 (2981) - Chicago, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Hazy amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of malt, floral/herbal hops, & citrus; Flavor of caramel malt, pine hops, grain/grass, and citrus; Finish is fairly bitter; Not bad.

malrubius (2984) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Can from Table and Vine. Gold with chill haze and dense head and lace. Spicy herbal orange aroma with grass and toffee. Fruity peach apricot grassy nutty sweetness with very spicy hop finish fairly dry with lingering mouth tingling piney spiciness that sits on the lively carbo. Medium body. Slightly old school with the assertive bitterness but well made/balanced and pretty tasty.

thornecb (6020) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with medium retention recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Sour caramel aromas. Soft and thin with sour caramel and toffee upfront turning to warming, bitter earth and resin in the lasting finish. Slightly unpleasant.

John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Can. Clear dark gold/amber. Pine with astringent bitterness throughout. Not bad, nothing special. Solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

migwell (366) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2015
A new brew from a new brewery which has several products appearing in coolers here in WMass. Pretty drinkable, poured from the can into a Lagunitas jar. It’s a fairly ordinary IPA, average looking, sufficiently hoppy and orangey with a moderate ABV. Unfortunately, for me, it has a lingering bitter and astringent aftertaste which will keep it off my good list going forward. Sheffield, where the brewery is located, has a population of 3,276. The rule of thumb here in rural Western Massachusetts is... good water plus low rent on an old mill equals prime new brewery territory. They are popping up like mushrooms!

3.5
Scopey (15431) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Can. I imagine it pours golden - amber with a decent white head, but who knows. The nose is fresh, juicy, lemon sherbet, grassy, lemonade and limeade. The taste is crisp, bitter, piney varnish, lemon sherbet, sweet lime, earth, pepper and some alcohol boost with a dry finish. Pretty alright IPA.

3.6
bnokk (539) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can. Mission, Pittsfield, MA. APPEARANCE - golden color, clear but not fully see through. Nice foamy white head at the start. NOSE - slight pine scents with a hint of floralness. FLAVOR - well balanced pine flavors, come out at the beginning and linger Ling after the sip.
