4.24/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

First had: on tap at Earth Eagle

Poured a hazy golden color with a small cap of white head that retained as a ringlet and left a few dots of lacing on the glass. Brilliant aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. I love Nelson Sauvin hops more the more I try them. Taste was crisp and fresh with hops, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, toasty pale wheat malts for a delicate balance, keeping the bitterness in check. Hop-dominant, but still clearly an APA and not an IPA. Very nice. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, and extremely drinkable. Quite possibly the best beer in Portsmouth (and maybe all of New Hampshire) right now.

Serving type: on-tap

3.43/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Slight haze in the copper, golden color.
Smells of piney, resiny hop with a slight sweetness.
Tastes similar to the nose. New Zealand hops are very present and leave a piney lingering aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is full and carb is appropriate.
Overall very drinkable and flavorful apa the new Ealand hops are a great addition and help this beer stand out from most EEB offerings.
