Another nice brew found at "Plan B" in Milford. Clear copper coloring with a decent off-white head and a mess of lacing! The aroma is piney-citrus hop and yeasty malt. Taste is also pine and citrus hops over mildly butterscotch malt. Apple pumpkin and sweet vanilla. Solidly medium bodied with pleasant carbonation and a fairly luscious feel. Very beautifully balance with IPA qualities that are highly drinkable. Another bravo to SN!

Appearance: Pours a thick, tall cream/tan head. Beer is a perfectly clear amber.

Aroma: Lemon, citrus, hop resin, coriander, and light pepper.

Flavor: Lightly hoppped, malty ale. Beginning is sweet and then moves in a spicy pepper. It finishes then with some present, but subdued, hop bitterness.

MF: Medium bodied and very easy to drink.Bitterness is very lingering and coats the mouth very nicely.
