Pours a hazy light straw color into a tapered pint glass. There is a small off-white head.

The aroma yields melon and pine. I can tell I'm going to like this by the aroma.

The taste has some mild malty notes in the start, but not much as this is very light in body. The dominant flavor is the pinyness towards the finish. This has a very clean taste; not much bitterness in the aftertaste.

This is light and drinkable; a great summer beer. I would gladly grab a growler of this.

Bottled 7/19/13.
A great session beer.

Yellow gold color with a thick white head. Ample lace.

Pine and citrus aroma. Sweet malt.

Grapefruit taste, a bit of lemon also. Pine resin. Biscuit.

A crisp, refreshing beer. The bomber went down easily. Wish I had another.

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

Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1/4 inch head, clear, golden in color

Smell: grass and citrus hops

Taste: grass, citrus hops, and pale malt

Mouthfeel: light body, moderate-high carbonation, slightly bitter with some sweetness at the end

Overall: A decent and above average, sessionable, slightly hoppy pale ale. I would get this again due to the cause, but I wish the beer was more memorable.

Hands down one of the BEST APAs I've ever had the privilege of drinking. Closer to a subtle IPA in my honest opinion. Very citrusy and refreshing. My cousin works for the brewery ad I can wait to see him over the holidays. I only wish you could buy it somewhere else besides New England.

Pours a bright clear yellow with nice head formation. Dissipates to nice fine lacing. Nose is full of bright pine and citrus. Very clean and nice. Taste is similar. A very nice, simple yet clean pale ale. I get a bit more pine than citrus in the taste. Nice easy drinking mouth feel and one that can be consumed in quantity without feeling guilty. Brought back a case from recent trip thru New England. Would buy again next time thru.
