Stopped by the brewery to pick up one each of their 22's. Right off the highway too.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Citrus, tangerine, clementine, grapefruit, some resiny pine, biscuity, and pale malts.

Taste: The hop flavors are more noticeable in the taste. Mild tingly bitterness and cracker notes and sweetness from the malts too.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light bodied, chewy, smooth, light bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice hoppiness to this pale ale. Biscuity and pale malts make thus a nicely balanced and enjoyable APA.

Bought from Craft Beer Cellar over in Nashua and poured from a bomber into a standard glass.

A- Thick white head, actually overflowed my glass. Nice bronze/amber coloring with good carbonation.

S- First thing I get is pine. Second thing I get is grapefruit. Finally, some more earthy notes with malt undertones.

T- Citrus all around with some pine notes. The malt is somewhat muted as the hops really shine on this one. I think that with a bit more of a malt backbone that this pale ale would really shine is it kind of blurs the line between American pale ale and American IPA.

M- Light, crisp, dry finish. Perfect after a night of canvassing in Goffstown.

O- My amazement over the quality that this tiny brewery can muster never ceases. This is a great pale ale, I will stop short of calling it amazing because I feel that the malts were not as forthcoming as I would like in an APA. But that is a personal preference and it certainly does not detract from the fact that this is a great beer. I hear that there is a new beer coming from these guys very soon, so very excited about that! Cheers!

Poured into a goblet. Color was a medium amber with a nice creamy thick head. Plenty of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma was a sweet floral hoppy smell, not overpoweringly so. Slight caramel aroma. Slightly hoppy piney flavor, with a bit of citrus. Small hint of malt poked through. Fairly well balanced. Coated nicely, plenty of tongue tingle as well. Overall a strong beer.

22 oz. bomber purchased from the brewery.

The beer leaps out of the bottle in a foamy cascade. It poured with a half-glass full of head that died down slowly into an orange haze.

Moderate scent of citrusy orange peel mirrored in taste. Light-bodied pale ale that has a biscuity malt character and a pronounced Cascade hop flavor. Well-balanced overall.

The over-carbonation definitely detracts from enjoyment of this beer. When I had it at the brewery, it had medium carbonation and the aromas and flavors popped out.

I will give it another try in the hopes that this was just an off bottle.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a light amber, with a one inch sticky white head that leaves loads of lace.

Smell is tangerine, caramel, pine, mango, and some grapefruit.

Taste follows perfectly, very tropical, with some malt and biscuit with a little grapefruit finish.

Body is close to medium, nice light carbonation, not dry, and very drinkable, but drinks larger than its abv says.

Overall another solid brew made in my state by a tiny brewery.
