4/5 rDev +5.5%
A: poured into a nonic pint to a deep yellow with a dense and rocky two finger head that retains well and has good lacing
S: smells of citrus, tropical fruit and a little pine oil. slight sweetness but mostly hops on the nose
T: taste is grassy and floral with some citrus and pine, slight tropical fruit and a hint of malt sweetness. swallow is piney and resinous oily hop goodness with a little citrus
M: this beer sits on the lighter side of medium on the palate with soft and adequate carbonation. the finish on this beer is oily from the hops but in a good IPA way
O: A delicious and well crafted IPA that hails from the wrong coast but could be mistaken as coming from the West.

3.91/5 rDev +3.2%
A - Creamy foam which dissipates to reveal a complex lacing on the glass. Darker orange color, but not thick.
S - Nothing overwhelming, but as the label advertises, "wildflowers and fresh cut grass" - meaning to me, a freshness that doesn't over power.
T - Certainly lives up to over stuff I've had from CBC. Very tasty. The mild carbonation eases off to a light finish, and though hoppy, the taste doesn't linger for too long.
M - The taste doesn't overwhelm, but this is a good thing. The I had mine not ice-cold, but a few minutes from the fridge and it tastes superb.
O - Great summer beer. Nothing heavy and very well rounded. I will drink this again.

Pours a hazy, gold color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, slight sweet malt, alcohol, slight earthy malt, hint of grass, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, earthy hops, floral hops, slight sweet malt, hint of yeast, and alcohol. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Cambridge Brewing Company - Spring Training IPA, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Look - Pours a pale mostly clear straw amber with a massive foamy head that retains well. Tons of chunky lacing.
Smell - Aroma is yeasty thin with some fruity hops on top.
Taste - Taste is creamy malt with piney but metallic bitter hops after. Not overly metallic but still not a selling point here.
Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Sits super bitter pine. Not boozy. Good drinkability.
Overall - Not horrible, but not great. Wish it was juicy rather than piney. Seems unfinished or rushed. I like CBC in general but this one wasn't my favorite.
