From the 650 ml. bottle brewed in 2014. Sampled on June 22, 2014. Fairly fresh I expect.

The pour is copper to pale yellow with a slight haze. No sediments. Huge cream colored head that stays forever.

The pine and floral hops greet my nose first but the caramel malt sweetness shoves some of those hops aside to get in there as well. There is a roasted sweetness and floral bitterness in the aroma.

The body is medium to full but also very smooth and pleasant on my tongue.

With the caramel sweetness in the taste at first I am thinking pale ale but those hops do burst into the picture like the malts did on the nose to take control. It is not super bitter but there is a bitterness to be savored. Not a lingering one but one to remember. This was a tasty IPA but probably not bitter enough for some craft beer fans. I found it to be highly drinkable and one I would easily have again...perhaps if they knock a buck or two off the retail price.

A - Hazy gold body. Thick white head that lasts and leaves moderate lacing.
S - Floral hops, caramel sweetness.
T - Malt, fresh biscuit, quickly interrupted by hops. Floral and earthy dominate. BItterness lingers. This is a well-balanced IPA.
M - Medium/think body, medium carb.
O - A great IPA. East coast style for sure. My first beer from Great Rhythm. I'll certainly seek out more offerings.

Bought this one from Hannaford's in Hudson and poured into a glass Sam Adams mug.

L- Nice color, light bronze with a thin white head.

S- Good citrus hop aroma with floral notes, very appealing!

T- Nice citrus (grapefruit mainly) up front with sweet caramel malts providing a malty backbone that the hops play nicely off of. The hops are not overwhelming and enjoyable. Bitterness in the back of the throat lingers a bit more than I'd prefer, but it does not detract at all from the beer.

F- Crisp, medium-light body, very nice.

O-A nice IPA from Great Rhythm! I enjoyed their Resonation and this one was even more enjoyable. I am not a huge fan of overly bitter and hoppy IPA's and this one is right in my sweet spot!

Bottle from Londonderry.
Pours a deep golden color with a huge creamy off white head that persists forever. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, tangerine, and orange with bits of bready caramel to back it up. The flavor is more pine and resin than citrus but bits of grapefruit pith do come through especially in the finish. Light bready sweet malty background notes round it out nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice Ipa, I could drink these, but for the price point I would probably grab something else first.

ACBF pour. Poured a light copper. Aroma is citrusy and floral. Flavor is similar in its hoppiness. Some bready and paler malt as well. Grapefruit and hop petals. It's a decent IPA but one that falls far short from being memorable in an increasingly bloated beer style.

A - Pale hazy orange body with three fingers of dense white head. Retention is great and nice foamy lacing clings all the way down the glass.

S - Citrus lime and grapefruit with slight maltiness.

T - Citrus hops upfront with nice earthy malts. Alcohol not apparent.

M - Medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Somewhat sticky and syrupy.

O - Not a bad brew, very well balanced. Maybe this isn't the most complex but the flavors are nice and very drinkable. I'm also very happy to see more craft brew coming out of my home town of Portsmouth, NH. Portsmouth has a long brewing history and I'm glad to see more and more brewers popping up in town and making contributions during this new era of brewing.

Tasty brew. As it warmed the flavors popped a little better.
