On draft at Paddy's in West Newton MA. 4 pints so I really field-tested (and enjoyed!) this one. Similar taste profile of their celebrated Greenhead IPA. hoppy, maybe a tad more balanced. A well-crafted brew.

Golden colored ale with a moderate amount of malt, fruit flavoring and hops. A bit bitter but enjoyable all the same. Overall, a decent beer and one of the stronger offerings from NPBC

From can
L - Cloudy amber color with thick, carbonated off-white head which disipated fairly quickly. Minimal lacing.
S - Slight citrus smell with malt mix.
T - Kind of a stiff malt taste but otherwise okay.
F - Medium mouth feel.
O - Not too bad. Feel kind of weird giving it all 3.5's, but it seemed an average type beer.

From the can. Spring 2015 I presume. No date. Sampled on August 15, 2015.

The pour is a cloudy looking light to medium amber with a big off-white colored head.

A little light toast in the aroma along with a mild citrus character.

Light to medium mouthfeel.

The taste begins with a similar toasted braded flavor and the citrus notes flutter around in there too. The bitterness is mild to moderate.
