3.19/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Pours a deep cloudy and murky amber body with nice dense off-white head. Retention is really nice and lots of nice lacing.

S - Lots of citrus, orange and grapefruit. Also some spiciness.

T - Mild citrus hop upfront with some doughy malts. Flavors are surprisingly bland and disappear incredibly fast. No real lasting aftertaste.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat thin and in no way sticky.

O - The beer drinks very much like ok homebrew. I've never drank a beer with flavors that recede so quickly. And the flavors that are there lack character and punch. There's no off-flavors and the beer is definitely drinkable. It could just use some improvements. I want to like this more considering SoMe is local to me, but I don't dig it enough to justify a $7.50 price tag plus tax.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber with a thin white head and mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild citrus and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops.

Overall: Decent Imperial Pale, not the best I have had, but it is good and went down smooth.

Fantastic beer, pours a hazy orange, lots of lacing. Smells mostly of citrusy heaven with a bit of spice. Listed as that weird Imperial Pale Ale category that I wish they'd eliminate. it's a solid, go-to IPA. Crisp & bubbly, pretty great overall. This is a great flagship from a great new brewery.

Draught @ Brewery: Stopped as part of Granite State Growler Tour. This one pours a cloudy, dark amber color. There was almost no head or lacing on mine. The nose is decent. Some malts, but no overt sweetness. A bit of citrus, spice and pine also. The taste is good. It is a bit bitter, with citrus, a hint of pine and some spice. A good solid beer!
