Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, caramel coloring with a frothy, foamy, off-white head that settles into a sparse surface coating. Aromas of spicy hops forward, with a toffee and caramel backbone, cedar notes, and a solid bitterness. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with toffee leading the charge, followed quickly by pepper spice, resiny cedar and bitterness, and a solid ribbon of tart grapefruit. Very well layered flavors. Robust and light bodied at the same time, with a very bitter, resiny aftertaste. This one gets big at the end. Bitter and slightly tart linger on a dry, resiny finish. This is a good IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Cute bottle art. Amber with a thin head that disperses into a rip curl of retention. Smells piney citrus with a hearty caramel malt foundation. Mellows out into a sweet floral theme as it warms.

Tastes piney citrus with caramel backing. The caramel is easier on the gusto than the olfactories which is good 'cause I don't like too much in my IPAs. Pine and bug spray hop flavor is shamefuly overshadowed by the unbalanced bitterness. Body is light for 6.5% and has some nice resin.

An appropriate beer to celebrate my Wildcat, Carter-Moriah traverse in which I bagged 6 official 4k'ers.

Pours a mostly clear amber, with minimal carbonation or head. Smells of hop/malt split, but there seems to be multiple distinct hop aromas. Moderately bitter taste that stays, surrounded by the malt/hop mix, accented by alcohol. Medium consistency to the mouthfeel, fairly easy to drink. It was not exactly what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It would be great if they could can this brew so it would be easy to bring a summit beer worthy of a 4000 foot New Hampshire peak.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are several other choices in the style that are better.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 9, 2013.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber with a carbonated head that tops its off for the entire session. Lingers.

The aroma is upfront sweet and malty with an earthy hop feel that tends to take over quickly. It seems to fit into the style well.

The body is clearly astringent and acidic but there is also an unusual creaminess that accompanies it, which is a but odd for an IPA - but not offensive.

The taste boasts a full hop bitterness with the malts and other sweet character played down. It finishes a tad dry in a satisfying fashion. Decent enough American IPA.
