3.73/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Comes in a pretty red can that sorta looks like Coca-cola from far away. The beer itself is cloudy peach colored with a slightly bigger head that lasts slightly longer than most pales. As always extra points for cans.

Orange rind and fresh out of the bag mossy hop aroma. Caramel underneath. Tastes like it smells. Very well balanced. A bit fizzy in back.

Pale ales are like the anti-asshole/opinion analogy: all craft breweries have one but they're usually pretty good.

Never had or heard of Newburyport brewing before but after this I'd try their other offerings.

3.09/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Consumed 11/30/13

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-gold color - small, off-white head, fades to a small collar and leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Citrus and some pale malts, pretty standard for the style - floral and candy-like - candied oranges and grapefruits - citrus is kind of strange overall, seems oddly extract-based, almost artificial - some grass as well - pale, caramel, and what smells like a hint of amber malts

Taste: Bitter and hoppy, but the hop profile is rather strange - straight-up bitterness, oily orange and grapefruit rind - bitter, candied citrus pith - sticky, oily bitter aftertaste - malts are mostly caramel, with some lighter, paler notes and some more toasted notes - above-average sweetness, which doesn't work well with the bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, smooth at first, but the sticky, oily aftertaste is really not what I'm looking for in an APA

Overall: Yeat?

There are lot of charming, easy-drinking American Pale Ales out there. This isn't one of them. This tastes like it kind of wants to be an IPA, but the hops are oddly candy-like and inexplicably bitter. I think some may appreciate this unique profile, but it's not really what I'm looking for.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had on tap at the brewery on 10-18-13 served in a pintglass
Also includes notes from 11-28-13, can > sensory pils glass

A - Hazy gold one finger of foamy head, light lacing.
S - Outstanding aroma, juicy clementine, some pear, pineapple, pale malt.
T - Taste doesnt really highlight those good fruity notes as well, but you get them in front, then a light biscuit and pale malt, mild floral bitterness.
M - Clean and light, a little chewy.
O - Great pale ale, NBPT is a really solid brewery, I hope they get to expand and distribute out of state so I can have their beers more often.

Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass, no canning date

A- Hazy burnt orange with a high off white head that dissipates slowly

S- Slight citrus and pine with a light toasty malt character

T- Similar to aroma but with some bitterness and bready malt

M- Light to medium with an easy drinkability

O- An okay pale ale not much depth or big flavors to speak of really, good for having with food. This was sent to me as an extra in a trade and always happy to taste something outside my area.
