look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Poures a finger of off white foamy eggshell head, color of the body is a gorgeous hazy oranged amber, lots of carbonation continually rises within the body, great lacing that nearly covers the interior of the glass.
Smell - Light citrus, floral hops, bready malts, tropical fruits.
Taste - Green meadowy hops, dry slightly bitter floral hops, touch of juniper, bready malt flavors, slight chalky dryness, finishes with tart dry grapefruit pith.
Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, medium carb that is very smooth and a bit foaming, but has some nice crisp edges at the sides and back of the tongue, very drinkable and thirst quenching, dry and slightly chalky finish.
Overall - Pretty nice nose, but flavors are all about pale malts and hops. Decent complexity and really nice balance. A good ipa but drinks more like an apa imho. A good, slightly bitter and dry ale. Extremely sessionable at 5.25%.

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

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.
