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

22 oz (650mL) bottle

I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-sensitive.

APPEARANCE : Almost clear copper/golden orange with a thin head, not quite non-existent, but certainly nothing big. Lacing is present but doesn't seem like it'll stick around very long. Head fades away rather quickly, exposing the beer.

SMELL : First nose is pine and citrus with a warm background of malt. Second nose opens up a floral spectre of aromas that almost completely take over the hop profile and the malt. Third nose follows through with what the second nose was, with a touch more pine.

TASTE : I was expecting something a lot more intense. It really isn't bad, it's just definitely not what I though it would be. The nose was far more intense than the taste is. The pine and citrus fruits are almost gone, leaving all the room for the flowery aromas to shine in unison with the malt, which in itself is quite nice.

OVERALL : Glad I had this one. It was a surprise from not getting what I expected from the nose, but it was a nice experience. I wouldn't go out of my way to get a bottle of this, but if I should come across some by chance, I'd definitely buy a few more. A calm, laid back sort of IPA that's definitely nice when you don't want anything too intense, complex or brainy.

First had: on tap at Reservoir, Waterbury, VT

A coppery colored liquid, effervescent, capped with a foamy white head that coated the glass with lacing before settling to a ringlet. Aroma was nice, biscuity malts in the background, candied citrus and herbal hops, with a good display of the featured variety (one of my favs). The taste didn't quite live up to the aroma, but it was still good: tangerine, lemon pith, light herbal notes, grainy malt bill that seemed just a bit thinned out and unbalanced despite the pleasant hop profile. Light-medium body, dry, bitter aftertaste, a good brew overall.
