A: Got a growler at the source in MIlford and poured it into a pint glass. Color is amber brown with a nice sticky 1-finger white head. A bit of lacing on the sides as the beer goes down, and a great clarity lend this beer some pretty good-looking bonafides.
S: A light and sweet nose that is fairly nondescript, with malted barley being the most dominant note. A touch of grassy hops on the end, but mostly it's a sweet malty smell with caramel, bread, and a touch of hay.
T: Pretty much tastes like it smells: malt-forward with a bit of dryness on the swallow. Notes of fresh-cut grass, wet basement, caramel malts are present in-mouth with a dry, hollow taste lingering after the swallow. I would compare it to a much more traditional English IPA than any big, bold American IPA. Akin to Davidson Brothers' offering.
M: Substantial enough without being overbearing in the mouth. The feel is a bit sticky, but fresh, and none-too-syrupy. Bone-dry afterfeel.
O: It's a decent offering from a nice local brewery. For an English-style IPA it's right on the mark, though it may not be what you expect.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours light gold, hazy, thick white foam. Heavy at times. Sticks everywhere=. Caramel malty nose with a grassy hint. Light malt taste, tiny hop bitter. Builds as the beer warms. Overall on the lighter side, but still tasty.
