Let's see how this new brewery is. Canned 11/27/17

Pours a decent fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, a bit of sticky lacing, crystal clear orange tan color

Nose brings nice hops, tropical notes, passion fruit, grapefruit, pink lemonade, some citrus, tart, touch of malty sweetness

Taste brings a bit of malty sweet cracker, malt extract like candy malt like character, then hops, herbal grassy and a bit spicy, touch of pine, little generic fruit, finishes a bit sweet sticky, lingering malt and herbal spicy hop.

Mouth is med bod, a decent carb

Overall started nice, but flavor fell off, more malty sweet syrupy, hops were kinda bland and nothing special,

Picked-up a single at Craft Beer Cellar in Plymouth for four dollars and twenty five cents. I have never heard of, or tried this brew before. Decent, but unremarkable brew...would be up for trying some of their higher ABV offerings.

My wife and I decided to meet a couple friends out at Solemn Oath's taproom and I noticed a plethora of interesting beers on the menu. This one happened to stand out to me so I gave it a shot.

This ber pours a clear, glowing amber hue that is light on carbonation and is topped with a frothy, almost creamy, head that is off white and dissipates slowly to a rocky layer that is retained. 4/5 The aroma is nice and hoppy with a good dose of pine resin that is backed up by a white bread maltiness. A bit of butter and caramel come out as the beer warms. 3.75/5 Light caramel and white bread kick things off in terms of the flavor profile before the pine resin quickly comes to the rescue. The white bread transitions to a grainy note while the caramel disappears entirely into the pine. Surprisingly, the malt is not overpowered by the malt, instead acting as a strong 2nd lead. Bitterness is mild and lingers lightly after swallowing. 3.75/5 This is a medium bodied IPA that is light on carbonation and is lightly drying with a light lingering dryness. It is actually a bit wetting before the dryness kicks in. 4/5 This is a good piney IPA that is fairly simple in terms of aroma and flavor, but this simpleness is what makes it so effective. I can't say that it is the most flavorful or most interesting IPA that I have ever had, but it is one of the most drinkable. 3.75/5
