A balanced American IPA. Smooth, light maltiness, with a touch of honey and granola. Hops are vibrant and bracing, yet light on the palate. Lemon peel, tropical fruit, and spruce dominate the bouquet.

Bottle was either infected or was one of the last bottles in the run. There was a thick stripe of yellow going up the side of the bottle and it was caked on the inside of the cap.

Grapefruit nose and matching citrus followthrough, had this on tap close to the source at Springvale Publick House. This is the type of IPA that really works for me. Well balanced and smooth.

Pint on draft at Dahlia's in Biddeford, Maine, an ill restaurant you should eat at.

Appearance: Pours a relatively clear yellow/gold with a two-inch white head that recedes to film and then sticks around for the duration.

Aroma: Though slightly muted for an IPA, the nose has apricot, grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Malt is pretty far in the background.

Taste: This is a hop-forward beer with a nice lemon and grapefruit taste. It's refreshing and smooth.

Mouthfeel: Very easy on the palate. Not a "big" beer, but a good one.

Overall: People tend to get fussy about the term "session IPA," but that's basically what this is, and it's quite decent. I had it with a Field Roast reuben and it was a great pairing. I definitely want more beers from Banded Horn, whose logo is awesome.

Small head that settles to rim bubbles. Some spots for lace. Cloudy, dirty gold color. 3.75/5

Pleasant floral hop aroma 4/5

A bit of pineapple and white pepper in the swallow. Long, bitter aftertaste. Short, mild toast upfront from the malt. 3.75/5 Above average body with an elevated carbonation level. 3.75/5 pretty smooth overall. 4/5
