3.83/5 rDev +13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz brown bottle.
Pours a nice copper color, small head which doesn't last long, but leaves nice lacing.
This has a nice aroma to it. Floral, fruity, and sweet. I smell something similar to raisins. Some malt aromas also. Good hop aroma.
The taste has a nice bitterness up front, some light sweetness, there is a taste that is like black grapes. Some bready/malty flavors . Nice hoppy bitterness on the finish. The bitterness lingers a bit. Overall pretty good.
This one seems pretty good all around. Trying the local stuff around the Boston Metro area I couldn't get/find when I lived in Charlotte.

3.55/5 rDev +5%
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.
