my first beer from these guys is a neat one. a lighter bodied pale ale with a unique hop profile and a curious berry complex mid palate that i cannot explain. gentle malt base, mid range on the abv, and bright and fresh. heady in the glass with a fruity hop aroma that at some point in the taste turns into an almost raspberry flash of sweetness out of nowhere. i dont dislike it, but its an odd feature of a hop forward brew. its light and fluffy in feel with great carbonation, and is rather refreshing as a result. far less bitter than most, much more balanced pale ale, old school in that way. a great summer drink i think, not quite as sturdy as i prefer in the fall, but something different here because of that berry feature. im curious for more.

Can as a thank you gift from NERBC
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head that shows moderate retention and lace. Aromas of earthy citrus toffee mineral water and diacetyl. The flavor is rich and malty with lots of toffee, caramel, and burnt butterscotch. Light earthy citrus rounds out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Drinkable beer, but not my favorite pale ale. More English inspired than American imho.

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

Appearance: Pours a very hazy amber color; the head foams to about two inches and leaves a few swaths behind

Smell: Very fruit, with stone fruit tones forward, though the floral, piney tones build, particularly as the beer warms; some caramel underneath, as well

Taste: The caramel tones hit the sweet taste receptors, up front, with the stone fruit developing; as the liquid sloshes over the back and sides of the tongue, the piney hops grow bold; after the swallow, the bitterness dominates, overpowering but not obliterating the malt

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A thoughtfully crafted beer but not one that hits my APA buttons; to my palate, the hops and the malts clash rather than complement and I cannot say I am a fan of the choices for either component

Thanks, Ljudsignal, for the opportunity

This is a very good - great IPA. Very drinkable and very hoppy - pine taste. Very smooth. Great bargain for the prince in the Eastern MA market.
