3.88/5 rDev +12.8%
Poured beer out of the growler into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Nice citrus hops followed by caramel and bready malts.
Taste: Grapefruit and orange flavors balanced by the caramel and bready malts. Very tasty.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth, drinkable, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and easy to drink.
Overall: A nice IPA that I look forward to drinking more of from the brewery. Such a drinkable and enjoyable IPA.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a nonic tumbler. Pours a pretty clear golden copper color with 2.5 fingers of creamy white head, good retention and nice lacing. Fine looking brew.
Smells pretty citric hoppy. Lemon in particular. A bit of pale malt. Nice but not exciting.
Tastes good- very drinkable. Malts are pretty evenly balanced with the hops (for an IPA). Pale malt sweetness washes over the palate first, followed by a round hop-tang. Get more lemon towards the end and finishes relatively dry.
Mouthfeel is very nice- medium light body with light to moderate carbonation. Goes down pretty easy and very refreshing. Not bad for 4.49. Not the best IPA but good enough to drink for sure.

220z bottle, $4.95 from Andover Liquors.
Upon removal of the cap the beer lept out of the bottle revealing a giant puddle on the countertop, and a full pint of pure foam in the glass. About a half bottle loss.
After the settling, the beer is murky in the glass with a dense skim coat and strings of yeasty chunks on the walls of the glass.
Aromatics are disapointingly meek, with barely a trace of piney hops with grainy malt following through.
Medium bodied with a prickly, tacky mouthfeel.
Sweet malt with a lactic twang and hints of pine and grapefruit starts the palate. Grainy, husky malt follows through with a light bitterness.
Finishes with sweet malt, wet paper, and light tartness.
Infected beer and I'd like my money back please. Beyond that the base beer is subdued and stale.
I'll be done with Blue Hills.
