3.45/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Amber honey with thin carbonation and a bit of lacing. Decent color but the rest is just ok.

Smell: Malty grass and a hint of pineapple. Very faint IPA qualities as well as a wine-like odor.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Resiny bubblegum with some sharp cheese. Mouthfeel is rather thin but not flat.

Overall Drinkability: Just an ok session.

Pours a orange-amber clear with good head and minimal lacing. aroma is quite light and has a touch of hops and sweetness. The taste is ok, The hop bitterness is large and in charge. Unlike some amazing ipas I have had, the hop bitterness is somewhat metallic in its taste. This is the second style of beer from Casco that has had a slightly metallic taste. Not that great

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, caramelized malts and citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness. Then some caramel and citrus sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time.

A - Comes out a slightly hazed gold color with a finger of soapy white head, medium on the lacing.
S - Some orange juice, grapefruit, slight papaya, light floral notes, big fresh bread aroma.
T - Extremely balanced flavors, good hop bitterness, crackery malt base with some good fruit notes of tropical and citrus, finishes with a nice bite.
M - Not too bitter, sweet, or dry, good feel.
O - I'm shocked that I'm really enjoying this, I picked it up at Shipyard just as something different to try, and didnt have much of expectations. I'd gladly pick this over some other breweries IPA's that are just lame. This isnt anything extraordinary, but its very well balanced in flavor and fee.
