Purchased can at the brewery about 2 weeks ago. No date on the can.

Poured into a Stemmed Ommegang glass.

Bright colored, not totally translucent but clearer than I expected. Still, this beer glows. Thin head, fades quickly.

Punches right to the nostrils with a big Citrus nose. Smells super juicy.

Taste follows the nose. This is an epic juicy beer. Tastes like a perfectly ripe grapefruit. Wow.

Thinner than I thought at first, but certainly lingers throughout.

Overall, this a special beer. If you can get your hands on a four pack, ask for a second. One of the best beers I’ve had in 2018, if not the best.

Assumed fresh can poured into tulip.
Golden yellow with orange highlights and white head. Tropical fruit, mango on the nose.
Dankness, pine, floral and big burst of tropical fruits. Slight grapefruit bitterness at finish. Medium body, right where it needs to be. Prefer more bitterness to the sweet but solid ipa.

Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip glass not sure when it was bottled. Pours a hazy orange with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves foamy rings of lace.

Smell is guava, papaya, tangerine, pineapple, and hints of grapefruit.

Taste follows tropical start to finish, with a little piny grapefruit in the very balanced finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, mild life, not dry, but a little sticky from all the fresh hops, and extremely drinkable.

Overall this a down right tasty IPA, absolutely would love to score this again.

Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a slightly hazy golden color, with about no head or lacing. The aroma is good. Tropical notes. Similar taste characteristics. A good beer.

I take a beercation from Jersey through Mass ( Treehouse - Trillium ) NH and finish in Portland ( Bissell bros - Foundation - Austin St - Battery Steele ) While in NH I always hit Stoneface ( best in NH - IMO ) - This trip I also made it to Great Rhythm and I'm glad I did. While not on Stoneface's level yet they are a up n coming brewery. This was one that I tried on tap and enjoyed it enough to bring some cans back to Jersey. Very smooth and drinkable. Good flavor - a really good warm weather brew - drinks light and easy. Well done.

16 oz can dated 7/20/17

Deep vibrant and cloudy gold color. half finger off-white head that settles to a film rather quickly.

Aroma has a more tropical slant with papaya notes over citrus and pine. I feel the citrus comes through a little too strongly in it.

Taste is similar to smell with a nice mellow sweetness behind it. A citrusy lime flavor takes over too quickly and overpowers the more delicate hops behind that. A light bitterness fades in at the finish and there is a little dank flavor at the end as well.

Feel is seltzery and smooth from the oated flakes.

[edit] - ok, I let this one warm up a bit and mellow out and it turns out to be actually a "dank" beer through and through. This does not come out when opened cold out of the fridge. lemon flavors still there but not as dominant.]

I like this one best from GR but this is not a NEIPA to me (as they claim it to be). It doesn't have that opaque thickness, and the hop flavor is "juicy" enough. This is just a hazy IPA with a little more vibrant hop profile. It misses the mark for me in terms of what they are going for BUT it is a pretty damn good beer and i would get it again. In fact I bought a 4 pack to bring home.

The best IPA coming out of New Hampshire at the moment. Wonderful tropical fruit notes within a nice complex, hazy, juicy NE IPA. And a real nice taproom at GR as well. Give this one a try, you won't be disappointed.

Undated can from a trade 4/8/17. Poured into Teku glass.

L: 3F head with good retention. Leaves spotty lacing. Beer is a mostly-clear copper orange.

S: Nice orange and lime peel. Light pine, not much dankness.

T: Orange, pink grapefruit, and lime peel. Light malts. Slightly piney finish, but not bitter or earthy.

F: Light bodied, light to medium carbonation. Soft flavors. Easy drinking.

O: More taste and complexity than the other Great Rhythm I had tried. Very nice IPA.
