look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

From the bottle to the glass a orange color with a 2nch head.

a: Orange color with a 2 finger head
s: Slight hint of citrus, and malty
t: Slight amount of citrus, significant malt presence, not much flavor, and has too high amount of carbonation.
m: Hard to drink due to high carbonation.
o: Not my type of IPA, and would not recommend it. Ended up pouring out the remaining bottle.

Glad I purchased a single bottle, so I do not have to suffer drinking the other five.. Will not buy any more.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Perfectly fine every day IPA. It's actually made under license in Saratoga Springs (as was the east coast version of Red Tail Ale). Cape Ann is not it's origin.

A: pours a hazed dark orange with a dense 2 figure head that produces great lacing. A looker 4

Smell: Weaker aroma, will let it warm. I can see the salt air here, and a long voyage, with caramel malts, floral hops and faint citrus. Not too hoppy, a bit mass produced in aroma? 3.25

Taste: Follows the smell but better, main stage is bready caramel, with very mild floral bitterness, citrus rind, and some creamy tea with honey. Like the finish, creamy. 3.5

Mouthfeel: lightly crisp to start to a medium bodied, creamy finish. Great food beer. Complementary, inviting, and I could drink another - though I'd not seek it out. 3.75

Drinkability: easy drinking, very much an APA, or an intro IPA, or maybe an English IPA. Malty. Good work, solid mid-tier beer.
