Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a soft golden amber color with a decent little white head. Stringy lace. The aroma had some heavy citrus bitter rind-like hops. Some cracker/bready malts and then a light resin/piney-ness. The flavor seems to lean more towards some orange pulpy sweetness, and some grapefruit and then some orange zest. Aftertaste is full of the citrus blend. Finishes slightly dry. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Good strength from the ABV. Overall, decent APA that I could have again.

From the tap, in a mason jar, citrus and grapefruit notes in the nose, yellow to honey in color, slightly opaque in clarity with a lingering finish.

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 10/18/18.
Look is semi-cloudy orange hue. Smell is sweet tropical fruit. Taste follows nose with little grapefruit bite at end. Feel is light. Overall, a very nice APA with great taste and easy to drink. Would buy again.

Really drinkable and nice pale ale. Balanced and a good option for when you don't want something too hoppy.

On-tap at the brewery. Should have started with this one, but oddly had it after Hobbit Juice, their DIPA. It was still seriously delicious, which is a testament to how good this beer is. Heavy juice bomb, also on the West Coast side of the style. Figured they’d be another brewery following the hazy trend but they’re killing it with the “old school” hoppy beers.

Lightly hazy, with a darker gold color. Lasting, small head with some light streaks.

The hop dominates with a biting earthiness of which I’m not a fan. Second whiff gives me a greater floral presence.

The pale malt is semi-dry and provides clean taste and mouthfeel—a touch lean body with an elevated carbonation level. The bittering hop cuts this but doesn’t overwhelm. The earthiness isn’t present in the taste. Moderate aftertaste.

Had two pints on draft at the Pillory Pub in Plymouth for about seven dollars. Was pleasantly surprised to see this, as I didn't know their beer made it to MA. Very solid, looking forward to trying their other offerings.

Bought a growler and liked it. Awesome nose, mouthfeel, and drinkability. Hoppy but not real bitter hoppy, much more citrus/floral hoppy. The only thing I didn't care for was the finish. Had a wheatish after-taste and I don't really care for wheat brews. Still very much worth a try.

My first brew from Beer'd Brewing!

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a very nice hazy dark golden orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a really nice citrus complex (oranges, grapefruit), nice little pine. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, really nice citrus complex (oranges, grapefruit), very nice little pine note. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a very tasty brew. I like their take on it, a little different. Glad I got a chance to try this. Thanks Mark!
