Tasty but nothing to brag about. Very nice brewing facility with a good staff though!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A- Dark straw color, great clarity. White head retains at 1/4". Some lacing around the glass.

S- Citrus, pine, floral, fruity hop aroma. Biscuity pale malt background.

T- Well balanced. Malt lends subtle sweetness, with pine hop flavor.

M- Medium body. Bitterness is strong, but not overwhelming. Finish is long.

O- Pleasantly surprised. Well balanced, just tipping slightly to the bitter side. Expected more of an English style, but this has some American hops, and some piney, citrus juiciness.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is golden-yellow with a 1+ finger fluffy whitish head on top. Plenty of particulate in suspension.

S: Strong malt scents, primarily of cereal grains and husky grain. Also surprisingly sweet.

T: Starts out on the sweet, malty side - biscuit and grainy malt lays the foundation - but then it finishes with an earthy, herbal bitterness that has a touch of pine and grass and even some citrus (orange peel comes to mind). Some spicy heat on the palate, but the warmth from the (moderate) ABV is predominantly felt in the belly.

M: A wee bit oily in feel, could use a better bite of carbonation.

O: A mixed bag. Clearly an English-style IPA with that heavy malt bill, but the hops do a decent job of showing up at the end and providing some bitterness for balance. Not my favorite flavoring hop profile - too earthy/leafy/herbal and not enough citrus/tropical fruit/pine for my taste buds - but your mileage may vary.

Had to pour it into a little plastic glass at the hotel in Plymouth. Soapy head sort of creamy probably the glass. Very drinkable and refreshing IPA. I prefer more hop but this will do. Decent all around brew. Will try their porter soon.
