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.

22oz bottle into .3l tulip
no bottle date - Batch 4.

Pours nicely, dirty body, little feathering of the color; somewhere mid-auburn with darker fingers. The head is exceptional, moderate pour yielded a full 1.5" head that left pillowsoft bubbles and a whole lot of sticky lacing.

There is a pleasant aroma, but not one I typically associate with an IPA. While there are floral hop notes and a slight burnt citrus note, there is an obvious vanilla bean note as well.

The taste just isn't here. There is a good bit of hops bitterness but there is no depth to the flavor. The vanillabean and the floral hops aren't at all. There is an unfortunate soapy taste at the finish.

Surprisingly nice mouthfeel. I could almost see giving it a 5 except that it is so bitter and the bitter sticks at the end leaving a sour finishing note.

May well be someone elses cup of tea, but not mine. If your IPA is going to be a one-trick bitter pony, fine, but I at least want it to be clean and leave the palate without a sticky bitter note at the end.

I don't know if I got a bad bottle but this beer was pretty darn awful (batch #3). I got this as a gift from my wife's godparents who live in Mass. The color is appropriate (amber) but it goes downhill after that. Smell is of wet horse blanket. Taste is bitter but downright strong overwhelming presence of wet horse. This is clearly contaminated probably by brettanomyces. If it were labeled as a funky belgian IPA it may fly but it's still pretty nasty in my mind. Bitter yes but no floral citrusy hop aromas. I guess I'll probably never know if it was a bad bottle....

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.

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!
