Sampled at Northgate Andover beer tasting. This was punchy, green, and bitter. All good things for a session IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can purchased at Saint Anthony Village Wine & Spirits in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is a slight haze golden copper with a one inch off white head. The aroma is pine resin, biscuity malt and some citrus grass. The taste is the nose with the resin more than the pine, orange citrus, and biscuit malt. Bit of a citrus peel flavor as well. The palate is light bodied with low carbonation and a soft bitter finish. Easy drinking.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light copper with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a combination of grass, light pine and bread notes. Flavor has more of a hop profile with bigger pine and grass notes backed by light bread and a touch of biscuit.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brewery. First visit. Interesting corporate office building outside leading into a pretty cool interior. Bar itself seems much better than the tables. Real pint pour which is appreciated. Golden color with quality lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a little floral action and grapefruit to boot. Bitterness and citrus rind are the taste headlines. Relatively thin mouthfeel. Fits the sessionable category well as it?s pretty easy to drink. Bitterness lingers which deters me from actually wanting to drink again despite the ease. Not one of my favorites.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Northgate. Clear light golden pour with a clingy white head. Nice aroma of English malt and light fruit. Fairly light on the palate but that’s to be expected for this style. Lightly dry on the tongue. Not bad.
