12 oz. can poured into my IPA glass.

Appearance: Poured a medium hazy golden orange with a large three finger foamy white head that fades to a nice lace on the sides of my IPA glass.

Smell: Citrus forward, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit followed by west coast hops. Pine, resin and grass. A bit of caramel malt and faint bubblegum. Solid smelling IPA.

Taste: Up front with sweet citrus, some lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and more tropical fruit. Good balance from the hops with a bunch of pine, grass, and earth. Good hop character characteristic of a West Coast IPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with decent carbonation and good hop bitterness. Creamy presence with a crisp finish.

Overall: This is a fantastic IPA from a relatively new brewery that I'm glad I got to try. Seek this out if you can!

12oz can
A) Pours with a two finger head that settles to a thin, creamy lacing on the top. Dark bronze color. Hazy body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Piney. Orange.
T) Hop bite up front that sticks all the way through. Slight peppery notes. Spruce. Grapefruit. Subtle caramel and buttery notes in the mix but not as pronounced as the hops.
M) Medium body. Tannic. Crisp carbonation at first then has a creamy finish.
O) A well done IPA. Definitely West Coast influenced. I'd have another one.

A - The beer arrived with a finger's worth of dense head. The beer is an absolutely gorgeous burnt orange, with a fairly thick haziness to it. The head recedes slowly and leaves thick lacing on the glass.

S - Honestly not much here. Something of a murky smell.

T - Not good. It tastes like bitter pond water to me. Very murky, with pronounced bitterness. I can even taste the alcohol. At 7.2% it's not exactly a light weight, but I don't typically taste the alcohol at this level.

M - Medium bodied with a bit of a thrill on the tongue and a nice resinous feel. Unfortunately I did not like the flavor, so this wasn't necessarily a good thing for me.

O - This beer is all over the map, which may be expected from a new brewery. That said, I won't be seeking this one out in the future. I would try other beers from these guys, because it seems to be brewed well, I just didn't find this interpretation of an IPA very appealing.

Appearance: Very slight chill haze on a rich copper color. Head is off-white and drops to a tiny cap. Some notches and splotches of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Big caramel malt over some sweet bready notes. Hops run a bit floral with some herbal notes. Sweet with a slight hop spiciness. Caramelized and cooked. Some esters add apple and a minor hint of oxidation. Nice and clean.

Taste: Spicy and floral hop. Sweet caramel malt. Biscuit. Some herbal and earthy elements as well. Lingering bitterness on the back of the sip. Nice balance between the cooked sweet caramel malt and the earthy spicy hops. Some light toasted elements.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Relatively clean finish.

Overall: A fitting take on the town.

Good, not great. Like Newburyport, it's good every so often, but loses it's novelty quickly. Eight that said, it's a solid drinking IPA with bonus points for the can format.
