On tap at the source
Mostly clear light golden color with a huge bubbly head. Earthy pine with a very slight Belgian yeasty or plastic phenol. Wicked carbonic bite on the tongue. Decent but seems way over carbonated as did the other beer I tried today.

750 mL growler. Thanks He Who Shall Not Be Named.

Pours a clear light amber golden color with a thin, light white head that fades to a ring of bubbles; no lace. Grassy and lemon aroma with a touch of citrus sweetness, light bready malt. Medium thick body, well carbonated. Flavor is a nice balance of biscuit malt, grassy hops, lemon rind, pine and biscuit. More of a blonde, than APA but refreshing and easy to drink.

T - Bready malt base with a really nice citrus taste, some spicy rye on the end.
M - Refreshing a tad sticky
O - Great APA, tons of flavor, well balanced.

Served on-tap at Blue Lobster Brewing in Hampton.

The appearance is a nice gold color with a finger of white head. Its` nose contains grapefruit, sweetness, citra hops and grass. The taste is full of citrus fruits, pine, a subdued malt profile, light spice too. Mouthfeel is very low key, some bitterness in the finish. All in all, a very good pale ale. My only wish is that New Hampshire was not so far away !
