3.58/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from bottle into a pub glass. Poured a "TV beer" with great color, great head, with decent lacing. The smell is of sweet hops with a slight malt back bone. The taste is very average, not much hop bitterness, not much malt sweetness, not much dank, not much of any out shining taste. Easy to drink because it is so well balanced, not in a good way. Would prefer more bite, bitterness, and sweetness from my IPAs, this one had not much of any of these. Will not seek this beer out again, but if its my only IPA choice at a ballpark, will drink plenty of them.

3.71/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A = Distinctly amber, with a respectable head that leaves ample lacing.
S = Hoppy without hitting you in the face, and a sweet fruitiness to the malt.
T = A slightly maltier IPA, nothing too dry or too bitter. I like it!
M = Medium bodied, just the right amount of lingering on the tongue.

O = I'm not an IPA fan, but this one is nice. The hop/malt balance is just right, and the fruitiness is a nice surprise. The hops don't assault, rather they add admirably to the complexity of this brew. I think this would pair nicely with just about any food that is traditionally served at Fenway Park -- GO, Boston Redsox!!

Best by 2/28/14.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear dark amber with a finger thick white head which receded fairly quickly to sudsy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt.

t: Pine hops forward over medium malt base, bitter and at first slightly metallic aftertaste.

m; Light to moderate.

o: An ok stronger-than-average IPA, probably great at a Red Sox game in the summer. So I'm drinking it in the wrong season. But I like to change it up. I already had a malty winter beer earlier, and plan to have a stout later. This one does not seem to have a lot of flavor competing with the hop bite, but it is refreshing.
