Pours a cloudy yellow straw color with visible carbonation. A generous frothy white head retains quite well, yielding sticky lacing and a thick creamy film throughout.
Fruit is predominant in the nose, mainly citrus, along with peach and pear. There is also a light grass, pine and floral aroma set against a background of cracker malt.
The taste features a dry crackery malt backbone set against a moderately bitter hops backdrop that evokes flavors of pine and grass. Furthermore, flavors of grapefruit pith and dry peach add a nice bit of juice. The palate is dry overall, as is the finish, which has a light peppery spice and clean bitterness to it.
The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It has a nice crispness to it and is quite drinkable.
A nice “little” IPA which is quite sessionable and flavorful for the low ABV.

Poured into a small chalice: color is straw gold, head is bright white with fine bubbles and head presents about 1/2 inch thick, head dissipates to thin top and some lacing.

Smell is very subdued with light malt, some herbal hop notes.

Taste adds flavor as it warms with very light toast, biscuit, herbal hops, some more citrus like qualities.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderate carbonation, good lingering bitterness.

Overall this brew starts very subdued but the qualities enhance with warming with fairly clean malt with toast notes and herbal and light citric hops.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some pine. Taste is pine, malts, some orange peels, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and decent beer, but not as hop forward as I expected.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dark yellow in color with an orangish hue and a murky, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a short, creamy, white foam with medium low retention. Medium light herbal and pine aromas with an underlying dankness and maltiness. Medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Fleeting creamy feel up front and light warmth toward the end. Medium malty flavor up front followed by herbal hop flavors that transition to pine. Medium hop bitterness through the middle followed by mellow dank hoppiness to the end. Finished semi dryly with light pine bitterness and bready malt flavors. Drank more like a pale ale than a IPA. Malt and hop characters were pretty evenly balanced. Aromas were a bit subdued and the feel was a bit thin for 6%. Solid malt flavors with tasty hop character. The lighy dankness makes this work. Tasty and easy drinking.

Undated can (I wish they'd date IPAs) into pint glass. Pours a hazy light amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is citrus, mango, pineapple, a little pine, with bready and caramel malts to balance things nicely. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is dry and ever so slightly bitter, but certainly not dominating. Pretty good IPA!

Maybe the only decent brewery in RI at the moment, I'm sure there are others, but this is the only one I know of. (And I know what you're going to say, they are consistently poor quality, consistency, and I've gotten quite a few infected beers from them. Their beers are sub par). So back to this beer from Grey Sail: Canning date smudged.

The pour quickly yields a huge frothy head that forces me to stop pouring very early, a large 3 finger head fades semi slowly, big pillowy lacing like a Belgian beer, with loads of lacing, a hazy slight sediment laden golden tan color

Nose is a bit on the lighter side, a bit of sweet toasty malt, malty mash porridge like aroma, decent but lighter hops, grassy, a bit floral, bit of lemon lime citrus, a bit of pine sap, some fruity almost candied stone fruit, touch of dank pine.

Taste brings cereal grains out front, more of that malty mash porridge, oatmeal almost, biscuity notes, hops bring a mild bitterness, fruity almost a fruity cereal for breakfast thing going on, mild stone fruit, sweet candied stone fruit, a touch of citrus, a bit of pine and earthy notes, maybe lemony too but hard to tell, a bit of dankness as well. Finishes drier, a bit of bitterness, pine and dank hop notes lingering.

Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb.

Overall meh, not quite my style of IPA, not really bad, just not a fan of the hops, and especially the combination with the malts. Although I will give them credit for an interesting combination attempt, and I thought Eureka would be a lot more pronounced so maybe this is a bit older than it should be, or the hops brought a bad batch as I get more pine and dankness than the nice fruit I expected.

A: The beer is rather hazy light yellow in color—to hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that faded away, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of herbal and grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with a bit of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell, starting off with flavors of orange and grapefruit citrus along with notes of herbal hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The use of Eureka! hops makes for interesting aromas and flavors in this IPA.

Serving type: can
