a : Golden amber, with a light fluffy head. The head dissipated quickly with very little lacing.
s : Flowery, citrus, with some pine hoppiness. I got a slight smell brown sugar.
t : Really not much going on here. Some bittering hops, and a touch of malt. Leaves a slight hint of pine after you swallow. Kind of lacking.
m : Thin and slightly watery.
d : I actually think that this beer is quite drinkable. It is well balanced and goes down smooth. It also gives you the nice flowery bitter taste you would expect from an IPA.
While, in my opinion, not the best IPA I have had it really is balanced and drinkable. I could sit down at a bar and order a few of these during a happy hour and be fine with it.

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.
