A = Distinctly amber, with a respectable head that leaves ample lacing.
S = Hoppy without hitting you in the face, and a sweet fruitiness to the malt.
T = A slightly maltier IPA, nothing too dry or too bitter. I like it!
M = Medium bodied, just the right amount of lingering on the tongue.

O = I'm not an IPA fan, but this one is nice. The hop/malt balance is just right, and the fruitiness is a nice surprise. The hops don't assault, rather they add admirably to the complexity of this brew. I think this would pair nicely with just about any food that is traditionally served at Fenway Park -- GO, Boston Redsox!!

Best by 2/28/14.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear dark amber with a finger thick white head which receded fairly quickly to sudsy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt.

t: Pine hops forward over medium malt base, bitter and at first slightly metallic aftertaste.

m; Light to moderate.

o: An ok stronger-than-average IPA, probably great at a Red Sox game in the summer. So I'm drinking it in the wrong season. But I like to change it up. I already had a malty winter beer earlier, and plan to have a stout later. This one does not seem to have a lot of flavor competing with the hop bite, but it is refreshing.
