3.73/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

bottle into pint glass

appearance: dark copper cloudy orange with half finger white head

smell: lemon, clementines, grapefruit, sweet malts, clove, herbal

taste: so smooth for an IPA, by the smell you would think it's a really bitter hop bomb, but the finish almost cuts off, there's hardly any bitterness in the aftertaste. You're left with a sort of watery, resinous, citrusy finish that is pretty satisfying. Remarkable balance; this is such a smooth beer.

mouthfeel: not much carbonation, rather thin feel

overall: a great IPA when fresh, but after a few weeks the hoppiness drops off very quick. a smooth IPA. Will buy again.

4.06/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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

3.54/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly hazy copper, a finger of off white head, decent lacing

Smell is a big dose of caramel, toasty and bready malt, some pine and grapefruit and a little floral hop

Taste is grapefruit, huge floral hop, big biscuity and bready malt, a light pine bitterness in the finish, sweet malt in the finish

Mouthfeel is medium, heavy carbonation, slightly dry

Decent beer here, nothing i will revisit for any reason, drinks more like a APA then A IPA, really balanced almost overly so.
