2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Relatively subdued aroma for an IPA. Below average hop flavor and mouth feel for an IPA. Slightly bitter finish. There are much better IPAs out there, both micro and microbreweries.
Tap. Aroma pine and citrus notes but not as pungent as some beers with west coast hops. Pours amber gold with thin white top and broken lace. Initial taste is lightly sweet with some background saltiness. There is a pleasant malt backbone here that textures the shift to a medium bitter finish. medium body, soft carbonation, thin feel, mean that it is a good IPA that I won’t remember Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2016

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is strong malty base with fruit, hints of pine and herbs. Appearance is cloudy golden yellow (large bits of sediment in suspension) with 1/2 finger-width white head with poor retention and small sudsy lacing. Taste is front half sweet malt, pine, fruit, and 2nd half light bitter. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with slick texture, average to lively carbonation with bitter finish. Overall, above average except for the appearance. Mariobiron (22) - St-Mathias-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Bonne IPA Americaine; bien meilleure fraîche "on tap" car les houblons et les aromates d’agrumes sont beaucoup plus présente. bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bright yellow, almost chartreuse! Excellent head off the draft that dissipates quickly leaving behind beautiful lacing footprint.
Floral hop, through & through.
FLAVOR- exactly what you’d expect from the first whiff. Flavorful and well balanced, but focusing on the floral/citrus hop varieties.
Good, but not unique. Solid drinker. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Like their porter, this is just a good solid example of the style. No surprises, but that's ok.
