Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - A warm honey color that yields a fizzy white head. Minimal lacing.

S - As far as IPAs go, not super fragrant. Oranges, fresh-cut grass, some green notes, and cereal grain.

T - Despite the unassuming nose, the taste is quite robust. The Amarillo hops yield a very enjoyable fresh citrus flavor, while the remainder of the hops contribute grassy, green, and piney notes. The malt is sweet and tasty - not unlike Honey-Nut Cheerios. The finish is bitter and hits the right balance between sweet and dry. Citrus and grass flavors linger on the tongue.

M - The medium mouthfeel and carbonation makes this beer easy to drink.

O - A solid entry into the New England IPA field. Very well balanced. Considering this beer was available (and reviewed) at a company conference, not bad!

I'm not a huge IPA fan. But this one was enjoyable. Plus a local brewery.

Look: Straw yellow to light golden in color. Transparent. Pours with almost no head; less than 1 finger of white foam on the surface of the beer that dies off quickly. Slightly better than a typical mass-produced commercial beer.

Smell: Nice. Mildly hoppy aroma, some malt, citrus/lemon. Made me want to take a drink.

Taste: Taste matches the smell. Nice mild hoppy flavor; but not too hoppy. Some malt/grain. Acidic/citrus/lemon. Ever to slight dry finish. Refreshing. Nice.

Feel: Kind of thin body. Mild fizziness from the carbonation. Slightly better than a good mass-produced commercial beer.

Overall: A nice lighter IPA that I found refreshing. While there are many that may be better, I would gladly drink this again. The fact that it is lighter, it went nicely with the pizza I was having at the time.
