Grabbed some Cody's for some growlers to ride out the storm. It poured out golden in color with a think creamy head, which was funny because there didnt seem to be a whole lot of carbonation to it. The aroma was light but had hints of sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste was great, a bit of malt and caramel with citrus, as well as a spicy pine hop, which was different but had a great flavor. Over all a really good session IPA. Highly recommend.

Growler from Redstone Liquors. Brought fresh from the brewery today. (11/12)

Batch 3 59 IBU

A- Dark golden color, unfiltered. Very thin head and minimal lacing.

S- Piny hop aromas predominate.

T- Well hopped with piny bitterness, but balanced with a hit of malt sweetness.

M- medium bodied. carbonation is low. Could definitely use more here.

D- Nicely hopped, but not over the top. That combined with the 5.5 % make a nice hoppy session beer. This was very fresh and happy to see I can get local, fresh craft beer so close to my home.

Keep on truckin' Cody!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, floral hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a hearty malt character comes in followed by a hops presence that’s on the mild side for the style but creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, a nice tamer representation of style, it’s a solid IPA to drink for a while but don’t expect your typical hop bomb.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere localish.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" off-white head over the clear coppery golden brew. Head lasts well, with sticky lacing. Aroma is juicy citrus.

Taste is sweet upfront, a touch of citrus in the middle, and then comes on bitter and lemony through the close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good as well.

A: Poured out a cloudy, deep amber color. One finger of off white head. Low retention and little lacing.

S: Dank pine and pineapple scents.

T: A lot more than the nose would've implied. Dank pine, lemon, Slightly roasted caramel malt and earthy hops.

M: Medium-light body that is clean and crisp with a medium carb.

O: A pretty good "light IPA". A little bit more on the hoppy side of the balance. The lemony tartness and roasted flavor malt make this stand out from the pack of IPAs.

Picked up a bomber at a shop up in Salem, MA.

Nice amber/orange body with a huge fluffy head. Really amazing head on this beer, persists throughout and really opens up the aroma. Aroma is of big flower hops, slight biscuit, some pine. Flavor is florally sweet, slightly piney, caramel sweet, and well balanced. Somewhat bitter / astringent finish that leaves the mouth watering for more. Very drinkable, big flavors even at 5.5% abv. Glad I picked up a few beers by this brewery. Definitely will seek out again.

Picked this up today at The Liquor Shoppe, at $4.99 (plus dep) for a 22oz bomber. Brewed in 2010, at 5.50% ABV and 60 IBUs.

Nonic filled; medium copper colored, with a touch of haze. Carbo is slow and scattered, with a thin, off-white head of fine bubbles laying up top. Some lace is left behind, though not in abundance. Aroma is citrussy, with some sweeter, apricot-like notes present as well. Body is medium, solidly in the middle of the road, while the feel is rather smooth, overall.

Flavor has a subtle malt sweetness, with a little toastiness. In general, though, this is all about the hops. As with the nose, there are some apricot notes lending a touch of fruity sweetness. More hops come into play, with some grapefruit as well as rindy, pithy characteristics. I can almost pick up a hint of mint in there somewhere, though it may just be my imagination. There's lots of bitterness here, with the aforementioned rindy, pithy action lingering long on the palate. A decent IPA, all-in-all. There must be some consistency issues, as I see from other reviews that this can be a hit-or-miss bier. Me? I thought it was more hit than miss. Prosit!!

Pours a mild copper color with a frothy head into my glass. Middle of the road color but that is rarely as important.

Piney hop note with a touch of baked bread underneath. Mellow. Nothing too wild, too dull, etc.

Tasty with a good dose of pine on the tongue and some baked buttery bread. At least it nailed this part of the review.

Lingering buttered bread and pine hop notes make up the mouthfeel. Carbonation is weak but in this case, a welcome thing.

No nonsense IPA that will quench your thirst. I do hope that they have something more interesting to bottle as I can't see myself buying this again.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, dated 11/19/12. Pours a reddish orange, with a half inch white head, some lace. Smell is faint tangerine, cut grass, and pine. Taste is more aggressive, with some grapefruit and carmel coming into play. Body is medium, enough carbonation, a little dry, and very drinkable. This is pretty good for a sessionable IPA.

On tap. Sampled during a tasting on June 17, 2012. The color of the pour is medium amber with a thin head that diminishes fast and becomes a ring. The aroma is a collaboration of malts, yeast, citrus, and a slight hop distinction. The body was a bit under medium but smooth. Lingering hop bitterness is the key feature in the taste with a citrus, or more specific, grapefruit flavor. For a warm day it would be pleasant.

Poured a 1.5" off-white head. Hazy copper in color. Smell is medium fruity hops. Taste is same, not as stong as many other IPAS, and as it warmed there was malt coming across too. Finish was rather long and bitter. Acceptable but pretty much a mid-range IPA. And there's really no hint why this IPA in particular is "No Name".

22 oz bottle was poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: A nice orange amber color to the beer with haziness to it and tiny little bubbles coming up through the whole glass. Slight head has reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: nice sweet caramel and bready malts, subtle citrus/tangerine/grapefruit notes too.

Taste: bready and caramel malts are there, but the citrus is very subtle and bitterness follows in the end. Sorachi hops does give it a tart/lemony factor that is very flavorful. This beer is more of an English IPA than an east coast, but still tastey.

Mouthfeel: smooth, easy to drink, medium bodied, a little chewy, medium carbonation

Overall: This was a another good brew from Cody up on the North Shore. The mixture of hops makes this a easy IPA to drink and the mixture of well known hops makes this a keeper.

This beer was a hazy dark amber color. It had a good-sized light tan head that left abundant lace.

Caramel malt aroma, some pine, a little citrus. Not that aromatic.

Light caramel malt taste. A good amount of piney hops, with a late hit of citrus hops.

A smooth beer, certainly not a hop bomb. No lingering bitterness. An OK beer.

Poured a murky amber hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured sweet earthy cereal grains and a grassy hop.

The taste consisted of a grainy caramel, toastsed malts and a lingering grassy bitterness.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a decent balanced IPA.

No Name IPA pours a clear amber into the glass with a moderate sized, stiff white head on top. The foam leaves a lot of netted lace on the glass as it fades away.

The aroma is subtle. It has bready notes of caramel and toast with hints of pine mixed in.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy with light, effervescent carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, malty with light citrus and pine. Caramel, hints of bread and malt sweetness begin each sip. Towards the end some lemon citrus and a touch of pine appear. It finishes bitter with lingering caramel sweetness when gone.

An easy drinking IPA that could use a touch more hoppy flavor.
