4.28/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served from a 500ml growler into a LA teku. 4 days old.

Appearance- Hazy orange with two fingers of foamy white head that left nice lacing.

Smell- Tons of grapefruit, tangerine, peaches. Lots of floral/grassy notes. No real malt presence.

Taste- Mostly grapefruit, apple, grass, light pine. Mild hop bitterness. Reasonably balanced malt backbone. Doesn't deliver as much as the smell had.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with a lower than "normal" carbonation. Mild hop bitterness remains. Off-dry.

Overall- A Solid new NH ipa. After smelling it, I wanted more of that great aroma in the flavor, but it didn't quite deliver. Still good though.

Serving type: growler

4.83/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Ideal for a IPA fan who likes a low malt backbone. Piney, burnt orange nectar of the beer gods. My new favorite. Sadly up from New Orleans for vacation in Portsmouth and only a short while to enjoy. Get some if you can. Served in a short tulip glass at a perfect mid fifties temp. To-dye-for aroma. Made for high-IBU snobs (like me).

Serving type: on-tap

Wow, picked this over Maine Lunch in a blind tasting a few weeks ago and now am enjoying my first growler. Love the smell, not too dank not too crisp - perfect in my book. The taste is right there as well. I think this is now my second favorite brew behind Heady, it is that good! This stuff is the real deal.

Freshly filled growler, at the brewery 4 hours ago. Nice gold pour, two finger head. Some nice sticky lacing. Smell is pretty juicy with a subtle but apparent maltiness. A little bit of bitterness In the aroma as well. Right off the bat, this mouthfeel is awesome. The only word I can think of is "pillowy." It's so soft and creamy, a little sticky. Just way too easy to drink. There's great flavors here. Resinous pine, some citrus rind, absolutely nothing unpleasant about this at all. There's only a small amount of bitterness at the end. Nice aftertaste for this, as well. I really love this ipa. Their pale ale is decent, but I feel this in on another level. It's so easy to drink and a ton of flavor.

On tap at cask and vine
Pours a lightly hazy light golden color with a frothy white head that slowly recedes to a cap but puts lots of sticky lace on the sides, Huge resinous citrus hop aromas backed up by a solid bit of bready caramel. Resinous pine and citrus flavors backed up by just a bit of bready caramel. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very nice offering from a local brewery. In a blind tasting tonight I picked it over lunch. Its pretty damn tasty!
