Bottled in August.

This was a clear coppery golden color, it poured with a small fizzy head.

The malt base was very much caramel forward with a little sugar cookie sweetness as well. There was a nice grassy lemon hop bite that tasted very fresh. Top notch IPA, thanks to my brother-in-law for sharing.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits/Sturbridge.

Poured into Pioneer Stein #42, formed a 1" light beige head over the cloudy golden amber brew. Frothy head sticks like glue, with sporadic lacing. Aroma is spicy hops.

Taste is sweet pale malt to start, citrus in the middle, and spicy bitterness through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Maybe leaning more English style IPA than American, but an enjoyable brew that I'd drink again.

A: clear; honey colored; 1 finger white head that receded slowly to a thin film; nice lacing;

S: really nice; floral with a little cat pee in the background;

T: earthy up front; floral comes in mid-palate; grapefruit rind bitterness in the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: hops are dominant; would have liked more floral hoppiness in the flavor than the earthy notes I got;
