thanks to granger10 for the beer
Appearance: Pours a light amber/orange color with a thick, lasting white head. Lacing is ample to the point that thick rings are formed around the rim of the glass.
Aroma: Strong citrus aroma. Definitely grapefruit, with some orange character also peaking through. Maltiness is present, and reminiscent of honey.
Taste: Very well-hopped brew, especially in the aroma and flavor categories. Grapefruit initially, with tangerine coming through in the background. There is almost an orange-blossom honey like presence in the brew. Maltiness a little overshadowed, however.
Mouthfeel: No harsh bitterness. Body is leaning a little on the light side, but it's citrus characteristics make the brew refreshing. I seem to have felt the alcohol more, but I had the brew after a long run, so that could be swaying my judgement.
Drinkability: Very good IPA, would definitely like this as a session brew.
Serving type: bottle

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Citrus, grassy, floral, herbal, and resiny pine hops followed by pale, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Same as above with nice mild bitterness. TTaste great and liking the low ABV. More towards the English than American, but very balanced and hoppy at the same time with more effort on the bitter side.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, refreshing, and medium bodied.
Overall: I like this IPA a lot due to its hop characteristics and low ABV. Will be enjoying more of these now that they are readily available here in Massachusetts.
Serving type: on-tap
