look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a lightly hazy light to medium golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass as well as some faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy white head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit and floral hops over lighter aromas of caramel malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit and floral hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Almost creamy.

O: This is a very enjoyable beer which is an excellent example of the style. Wonderful flavors and aromas from the hops. Definitely a beer I would recommend grabbing if you get the opportunity.

My first Buzzards Bay beer.Poured into a becker a medium golden with just a tinge of deep orange,a great looking one and a half finger frothy head atop.Fruity hops and toasted grain in the nose but both are pretty mild.I like the mouthfeel it's almost creamy and quite full.Leafy and herbal hops on the palate with dryer malt base with light crispness,seems almost English in nature.Not bad but not anything really to write home about,good looks and texture but lacking a little in the smell and taste category.

Horseneck Golden IPA has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a golden-orange appearance with bubble streams and big, gray-white sediment chunks suspended throughout, and lots of thick lacing left down the sides of the glass. The aroma is full and odd- slight citrus, sugary sweetness, bread, and cream cheese cake frosting. The taste is of the same elements with a touch of peaches in cling syrup and a moderate hop bitterness in the after-taste. Mouthfeel is medium, soft, and slick. Horseneck Golden IPA finishes semi-dry, very refreshing, and highly drinkable. This is outstanding!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong piney hops bitterness that is followed by some citrus and caramel sweetness that strengthens as you drink the beer. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and provides a good balance. The after-taste is sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very poundable IPA worth drinking for a long time.

Here's an interesting one for my neck of the woods. Not sure how these made it to Florida, but seems like it'll be worth a shot. Horseneck Goldenipa pours out a slightly hazy golden color with a smaller head. The aroma is nice, it's got a delicate floral and fruity hop thing going on that carries over to the taste, which provides a pretty pure hop flavor experience without smacking you in the face. All I get are the nice floral, citrus, and light fruit aspects from the hops used in this beer, and then nothing. The mouthfeel is light and moderately carbonated, and the drinkability is exceptional. Overall, Horseneck is an interestingly delicate IPA experience.
