3.88/5 rDev +6.3%
Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle
A - Very light in color with a head that pours thin but sticks around for the entire beer..
S - Not a huge hop nose by any means. A clean, crisp, citrusy hop smell is apparent but faint.
T - Great tasting single IPA. At 5.9% it has a great flavor and abv that is light enough for a heavy session and tasty enough to know your drinking a quality beer. Citrusy hop taste with a little bit of maltyness on the back end.
M - Good carbonation with a slightly dry finish. Feels light in your mouth and doesn't leave you with that sweet, wet aftertaste higher abv brews do.
O - Great, easy drinking IPA. This beer is good at what its trying to be.

3.34/5 rDev -8.5%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
A- pours a golden, almost honey color with a one finger, off-white head, which dissipated fairly quickly leaving minimal lacing.
S-Several smells come through: I detected a peppery/spice aroma along with some lemon and faint floral hoppiness. A distinct malt aroma is present as the beer warms up toward the bottom of the glass.
T- The lemon, or some citrus, comes through, and there is a pepper note that is present. There is a pine or floral flavor present too; I assume it is from the hops. But at any rate, it has a nice hoppy bitterness that is expected in the IPA style.
M- The lemon and bitter hops sit on your tongue, but it is not too heavy. The mouthfeel is medium but nice. The carbonation is balanced and not too overbearing.
O- I enjoy this offering. It is a middle of the road IPA, but it has a nice mix of bitterness to go with the flavors. It is an IPA that would go well at a summer cookout or a tailgate.

Poured into a nonic a clear medium golden with a sticky half finger white head that left a broken thick ring of lace behind as it settled very slowly.Lighter leafy and citric hops in the nose,more leafy than anything,a bit of toast and caramel malt as well.I really like the subtle hop complexity to this beer,almost every quality of a a hop comes through in the flavor profile.Apricot and mango notes along with leafy/minty flavors that meld into a grapefruit rind flavor,all over top of a caramel biscuit base,it's even a little boozy for how "small" iot is.A pretty solid IPA from the commonwealth to the north,pretty complex and flavorful.

S: Orange and fruity hops, resiny sweetness, some toasty malt character behind the hops.
L: Crystal clear, golden yellow, white creamy head that dissipates. Good lacing.
T: Resiny and citrus hops with a slightly sweet, toasty malt character. Medium bitterness, fairly smooth but present. Dryness follows leading to a dry, hoppy finish. Smooth, resiny, almost spicy hop flavor.
M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation, fairly light.
Really solid IPA. I enjoyed the malt character which wasn't too head and complemented the hops nicely.
