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

A- Pours a medium golden amber with a good white head. The head lasts a while with strong lacing on the sides. This is a well carbonated beer and it is slightly cloudy and opaque.

S- A fairly strong pleas tent hoppy aroma. I detect strong citrus and other floral notes.

T- A nicely hoppy IPA with strong citrus and floral taste. The citrus taste is more orange up front but the finish tends more to a grapefruit like bite and bitterness. I also detect some earthy, piney tones. This beer is slightly sweet, but any malt flavors are very subtle. I moderate hoppy bitterness lasts on the tongue.

M- A fairly light bodied beer with good carbonation. Every so slightly oily, a pleasant mouthfeel.

O- I think that this is a great early offering from the Newburyport Brewing Company. The are making a name for themselves locally right out of the gate. Not a world class IPA, but at the price I think it is one of the best deals out there. An excellent choice for an everyday IPA. I look forward to Newburyport's future offerings. I hope to visit this brewery soon.

On tap at the brewery, review from notes on 10-18-13
Also includes notes from can poured into a sensory pilsner glass on 11-28-13.

A - Lightly cloudy gold color with a finger of foamy white head, light scattered lacing.
S - Awesome dank aroma, lots of grass, pine, some fresh herbs, lemon, grapefruit.
T - An underlying sweet caramel malt with some orange traits lays way for that big dank flavor to come out, nice fresh bitter bite, a bit dry on the end.
M - Medium bodied, perfect bitterness, fairly bitter
O - Excellent IPA, from the can it still pretty fresh as compared to having it at the brewery. Its a very dank, floral, and grassy IPA.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong grassy hops bitterness that is quickly followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a while but there a lot of better alternatives in the style.
