3.4/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a nice dark amber, with a reasonable number of streams of bubbles rising from the bottom. Head was a foamy dirty white that sat nicely, but had no cling. Aroma was citrusy, primarily grapefruit that peaked around the hoppiness. Taste was primarily hoppy, but had a strange finish to it. Something not quite right, but I can't place the taste, almost a sour citrus soap. Felt great. Coated very well, not at all watery, with a nice amount of tingly from the carbonation. Overall a solid beer, but the strange flavor was detracting.

3.45/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very nice golden hue with a decent head into my glass. Not as pale as expected but acceptable.

That big 'ol pine bite denotes this as an east coast IPA. Other than that, it has a decent malt backbone.

Very crisp. Big lingering pine in the mouth, leaving little room for malt to shine through.

The mouthfeel is basically the same. Just lots of lingering flavor. Nothing to really set it apart though.

A decent IPA that would taste excellent on tap.

3.7/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Golden amber and a very even cloudiness, not an any way particulate. Decent head and some nice lacing.

S - Subtle with lemon

T - Malts add a bready smoothness under the lemon and pine hops which dominate. The after taste left behind a lot of heat and bitters. As the name would suggest, this is a hop forward beer. I've had other beers with higher IBUs that taste less hoppy than this.

M - Medium body and resinous. Maybe a little under carbonated.

O - I like this beer. Hoppy and crisp and with an ABV that leaves room for another drink. Glad to see good beer being brewed in my home state.

Pours a five finger khaki head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light pine hop nose, flavor is a pine hops with some caramel. Light lingering bitter aftertaste. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord. NH.
