Consumed 11/29/14

A: Pours remarkably crystal clear, a lovely burnt orange with some gold - medium size, slightly off-white head, fades to a wispy cap and leaves a nice web of lacing

S: Citrus, juicy citrus - fresh, ripe orange and tangerine flesh/juice - ruby red grapefruit - very floral - some soft pine - aromatic, but in a decidedly non-aggressive way, somewhat mild, does not punch you in the face with hops - some lightly bready malts underneath

T: Citrus juice - as suggested by the smell, this is not aggressive, but it is very citrusy - orange, tangerine, and ruby red grapefruit juice - mostly juice, although there is a hint of pith - medium level of bitterness - very floral - some touches of pine, particularly in the aftertaste, along with a vaguely spicy character - lightly resinous and slightly sticky - pale bread and lightly cooked biscuits

M: Medium body, adequate carbonation, mostly clean finish

O: Not exactly West Coast, but in a western direction, I suppose

Ipswich Ale seems to be emerging from the shadows of only producing a handful of beers (which range from good to great) to experimenting with new styles. Their Hop Harvest, which I failed to actually review, was lovely. I think this can is relatively fresh, but I may have to seek this out in the future to confirm. It's very non-aggressive, which wouldn't be a bad thing, but there is an odd stickiness that I do not really embrace.
