"Hampton Edition"

A-Pours mostly clear and the body is beautifully illuminated. Big, dense head retains itself excellently. Rather cheap with its lacing.

S-Exotic fruits and dankness. A big of green onion. Hints of pineapple and mango. Tangy grapefruit. Very subtle malt bill. Its all about the hops here. The aroma doesn't jump out of the glass but it is pretty heavy when you sniff.

T-A big, juicy and ripe hop-bomb. Starts off all grapefruit and other fruit then it turns into a focused charge of pine and grassy bitterness. The malt adds a chewy aspect as well. A bit dank in its hoppiness too. I love the balance between herbal/catty/hempy and exotic fruity. Way cool.

M-Big body. Soft carbonation. Long, deep, lingering bitterness. But it still somehow remains very drinkable. The flavor really clings to the palate in the best way.

O/D-One hell of a DIPA. The hop expression is very unique. It reaches mostly every edge of the overall hop flavor profile. Complex and bold. Definitely a neat brew. Blue Lobster's got some serious talent in their brewhouse.

Growler schlepped back from the seacoast by my brother in law, thanks for the opportunity Dave!
Pours a deep amber color with a decent white head that slowly recedes before leaving some spotty lace on the sides. Smells of pine and resin with a hint of green onion. Bits of bread and caramel peak out of the nose as well as a fleeting hint of alcohol when swirled in the glass. The flavor starts off with a solid bready caramel malt backbone that quickly surrenders to an assault of resinous dankness. Moderate bitterness fly's in midway to finish and lingers long after every sip. Medium body with a light level of carbonation and a bitter resinous mouthfeel. This is a nice double IPA, I enjoyed it. The bitterness is at times harsh, that could be dialed down a little bit, but I'd buy a glass of this.

I finally got a chance to run up to Hampton and get some growlers filled at Blue Lobster. When I got home my friends and I split A Town Called Earth. The beer pours a hazy dark amber with a small creamy head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma has malty notes of caramel and hoppy notes of orange & grapefruit citrus. I thought it leaned more to the malty side.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is smooth and creamy with light carbonation. The flavor begins malty with tastes of caramel and pale malt. In the middle orange & grapefruit citrus move it. There's a touch of pine and a little peppery spice mixed in there as well. It finishes moderately bitter with a slight grassy flavor. Once gone the citrus flavor lingers on the palate.

This is a very tasty, well balanced easy drinking beer. However I felt the aroma was a little funky.
