This is an example of a beer I bought due to the label - I was always a big fan of Alice in Wonderland (Disney version). Great label all around.
This beer has a nice copper color, a bit of head that leaves a nice ring of lace. It's medium-bodied and quite drinkable - it's not a hop bomb by any means but very well balanced. There is a solid malt presence here, nicely balanced by an earthy hop flavor. There is some bitterness on the back end but nothing too overpowering.
All the craze these days are "West Coast IPAs" - this is definitely in the East Coast/British category, but I'm equally a fan of this style. Worth a shot.

4.06/5 rDev +6.6%

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
