A-Pours orange. Hard to tell much due to the sample size.

S-Citrusy hops. Balanced. Not as aggressively hopped in the nose as some others. Smells quite fresh. Bright and balanced.

T-Citrus and floral hops with some green hops. A balancing sweetness. More hop forward than the nose lead me to believe. I get the unique Citra flavor here that I didn't pick up in the nose.

M-Medium bodied. Medium bitterness.

O-An above average IPA.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a slightly hazy, caramel brown coloring with a thin, filmy, white surface coating of head. Aromas of heavy cedar and oregano spiced hops, with a citrus backbone. Flavors are a blast of fresh hops, both resiny and rich, with a citrus blending throughout. Very balanced and delicious. The aftertaste is bitter and citrus tart, but very palate-friendly. Smooth, clean, slightly dry finish. Very good brew.

Stopped by Flying Goose after hiking Mt. Sunapee.

Hazy honey orange color with a white snow cap head. Fair retention and a few drips of lace clung to the glass. Flying Goose has nice glasses.

Aroma is mainly citrus with a mildly floral flair. General "light malt" malt accompaniment.

Definitely leans toward the hoppy side of balance but not by much. Juicy grapefruit hops and more general light malt extract type malt. Big, unfiltered body.

Good stuff, it hit the spot after a wintery hike.

Reviewing this as an American IPA as it's incorrectly categorized here.

A: Pours hazy orange with just over an inch of white head, decent retention and a little lacing.

S: American C Hops: Very citrusy and dank.

T: Dank citrusy hops fairly strong upfront, good bit of floral notes as well. Grapefruit, fairly bitter. Touch of sweetness. Malt bill isn't too clean or defined. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste with perfume and a little pine.

M: Medium body, decent carbonation though not crisp. It becomes too creamy too quickly instead of having a nice crisp finish.

O: I was actually a little impressed by this. I very much enjoyed the hop character. Sure it has it's flaws, mostly that it has a very 'dirty' and raw tasting/malt character and could use better carbonation. It's pretty solid.

Poured growler into a 13oz tulip glass. Pours a a hazey amber orange. A beautiful sticky white head, lots of lacing with a aggressive pour. A nice citrusy orange smell, with some pine in the background. Smell similar, with a little more bitterness then the smell. Great mouthfeel, on the heavy side, wish it had a little more carbonation. This is a very good beer, from a brewery that got my attention many years ago.

Before someone deletes this review -- this beer is being brewed again. Rick the Brewmaster poured it for me himself. I sampled it from one of the growlers they had for sale on September 16, 2010. The recipe has been modified a bit and the changes he's made are all good. It pours a deep copper-amber with a thin but consistant head. The aroma is full of inviting floral hops. The taste also has a fine bitter hoppiness with citrsu notes on the back side. I thought this was a very well done beer.

16oz pint glass on-tap at the brewpub. Growlers also sampled. A dark orange-amber ale with fine bubble carbonation, a good looking 1/4 inch head of different sized bubbles, and good lacing til the end of the glass. First aromas are of piney hops and alcohol. A sweet malt aroma is underneath. Taste is of piney, minty, sprucey floral hops and alcohol heat to start, then the sweet malt back-bone comes through. The malt is not in balance with the hops and alcohol, but it comes late and lingers in the aftertaste. The big flavors are less brash because of the one-two punch and this big beer has a refined finish. Flying Goose ales have a near perfect mouthfeel when fresh. The alcohol is listed on the beer menu as 6.7%abv, but the brewer indicated that the percentage was actually higher in their stronger beers. The drinkability is high for a big beer like this and I compare it with big hoppy ales from California and Colorado. A rare style and a great local find.

On-tap at the brewpub in New London, NH. Two finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Almost clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts and finishes hoppy, brewer is right - "hoppier and more bitter than the IPA". The ABV is 6.77%.

This beer is a good strong ale. Arrives in a pint glass as a nice dark amber/copper color. There is a rather small head, which is unfortunate. Smell is nice and hoppy. Taste is nicely bitter in nature. A very enjoyable beer. Give this one a try if you visit the brewpub. Enjoy!

This brew pours an almost clear straw color with a white head that does not stick around for the duration. A nice lace is left hanging to the side of the glass. The faint smell of alcohol and hops hit the nose but not over bearing. I think this should be the ESB and a strong ale. A strong hop flavor carries through the entire glass, and gets stronger toward the end. Nice brew but not quite a strong ale.

Cheers

This was an interesting bier that I just could not quite figure out. Poured a medium golden color, with a short, thin, white head, and a touch o' lace. Found malt in the nose, along with some hoppiness, and something I couldn't exactly finger. The taste also had a mystery flavor. I found some malt and lots of hoppy flavor. It was somewhat fruity, yet I couldn't identify the "other" component. Alewife suggested a smoky factor, but I was not so sure. I guess I'll have to try more, and/or rely on other BA's to bail me out on this one.
