A - Hazy pale body with dense white foam. Really nice retention and lots of lacing.

S - Lots of doughy malts.

T - Doughy malt upfront followed by slight citrus, but more strongly, pine and floral hops. Hops linger in the aftertase.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and washes away clean, not sticky.

O - This was great. I could definitely make this a routine beer. Very drinkable. And I'm happy to support a local brewery.

States to be an IPA. Not a traditional American IPA for sure. No real hop signature. Tastes of weak tea. Shame really. Appearance was promising. Nice copper color with a head that sustains while drinking. Mouthfeel is a bit murky, smooth enough but not enjoyable.

From the 650 ml bottle dated 8/24/13. Sampled on May 31, 2014. I can buy this fresher than that but I picked it up off a clearance rack.

The pour is a murky looking copper color with a modest off-white head that leaves lacing along the way.

The aroma is less grainy and more malty but that could well be due to the age of this bottle. Yeasty even. Sweet caramel malts.

The body is actually rather nice in the medium range.

The taste is sweet and malty rather that rye-like and grainy. Again, the bottle is 10 months old and this is a style hat should be consumed fresh. It had some nice elements to it but next time I will try a fresher bottle.

I would revisit this ale more often if not for the hefty price tag, given its " slightly above okayness." If the price point dropped, it might be more of a staple in my household. I think I paid nearly $9.00 for 24 oz. bottle. Living in New Hampshire, however, I will do my best to support this local brew, just not with any great frequency.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Light orange color with a quickly dissipating head with little lacing
Smell is a bit sweet and yeasty
Taste starts sweet and transforms to a strong bitter, almost like an IPA without the citrus. Lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is good with a bit of carbonation
Overall it would be good on a hot summer day, if I was looking for something more than a pale ale but less than an IPA.
