4.44/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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. Slightly boozy.

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

Poured from a bottle (bottles sold 1-4pm weekdays, otherwise growler fills) in a tulip, three day old bottling. I had it on draft with a fresh keg the day before and I am not tasting too large a difference. Just a fantastic IPA. Beautiful nose, citrus, grapefruit, 2 finger lacey head that dissipates. Nice color, goes down well for 7.2% ABV, no bitter after taste. I am pretty pumped to be so close to the brewery. I'll be back to purchase a log.

Pure awesomeness. Enjoyed this IPA immensely. This new brewery really knows what they're doing. Delicious to drink, and leaves you wanting more. Well done!

Pint from Portsmouth Gas Light Co. First sip was very bitter without much else going on, but as expected as it warmed up it developed a great citrus juicy character and lovely billowy hop burst on swishing. Still very strong on the bitter end, in my opinion overly so. Without a doubt an excellent IPA as it warms.

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).
