A: Poured out a very flat beer with little head. Very hazy bronze amber color with minimal thin lacing.
S: A sweet malty almost saison style aroma. Lacking the typical IPA hoppy scent. Almost none to be found, interesting....
T: Taste follows the scent with a sweet toffee saision style beer like taste. Even more confused with a lack of hops in this one. Missing any sort of bite on the back end as it finishes with a vanilla note.
M: Very flat low on carbonation. Medium body nothing lingers too long, not much bitterness.
O: I have a very hard time calling this one an IPA so if you are looking for the traditional IPA, probably not the best choice. Now taking away the IPA name tag, I think it is a decent beer, as it has a sweet taste to it. Not what anywhere near what I expected but I was not completely disappointed. I think if it were named something different I may have liked it more. Not traditional, but still tasty.

3.55/5 rDev +5%

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.
