look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on tap at the brewery.
Servers of bright sunshine glowing yellow one finger of foamy head.
Aromas are light levels of floral hops and biscuit backbone.
Flavors are nice but a bit subdued. Amarillo has more subtle qualities as a hop.
Mouthfeel was really nice.
Overall, enjoyed the beer. It's light.

On tap at the brewery.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a murky to hazy semi-burnt orange color with a bar pour's worth of a finger's white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Some sliding slightly speckled lace ran here and there.
The aroma had a superb crisp sweet to bitter grassy to wild onion smoothness rolling over some light citrus and piney to smoothed out earthy hop contour.
The flavor was moderately bitter with a substantial sweetness from the onion, citrus and grassiness. Seemed to really come together in the aftertaste with a slight acceptable boozy effect.
The mouthfeel was almost medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Finishes fairly grassy and dry.
Overall, pretty nice IPA that I could come back to. New England styled? I'd say - it's on the cusp of those marks.

On tap at Burlington Beer Company in Williston, VT.

This one pours a very hazy and ugly orange- with a small white head, and lots of lacing.

This smells super grainy, with wheat and overripe orange.

This isn't very good at all. It's kinda grassy and very grainy, with onion and vegetal. It's almost a big zero when it comes to flavor.

This is creamy, with a weird grainy aftertaste that sits heavy on the palate.

This is definitely a swing and a miss.

vegetal, herbaceous, grassy, hint of citrus and bready notes. almost like chalky and toothpaste at times lol ... some onion garlic and cattyness going on, not the best.

This beer pours a murky golden burnt orange with a two finger, frothy bright white head. Retention is average and there are many hanging rings of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is very green and vegetal with a hint of citrus.

Taste is the same. There is more hop bitterness than actual flavor. As it warms a bit more citrus comes through, but still lacks in flavor.

Feel is light, smooth and easy drinking (maybe from a lack of flavor).

Overall this beer is ok. Comes off as a session NEIPA, and I don't really care for sessions. I've had some great beers by BBCO, but this is not something I would revisit.

Canned 1/31/18.

Amarillo for days. Dank cannabis aroma, which you don't get from the more stone fruit-centric hops. Those who don't enjoy this just don't enjoy OG Amarillo ;)
