From the 650 ml. bottle dated 21 Jan 14. Sampled on March 15, 2014.

The pour is ridiculously heady but otherwise a handsome looking amber-copper color with good clarity.

The aroma is a mix of caramel malts, toffee, biscuit, and the hops are more earthy than floral or citrus-like.

Medium body with a smooth texture.

The taste is as balanced as the nose suggests with a toasted biscuit and caramel malt flavor quickly usurped by the earthy and mellow hop bitterness. This is very quaff-able too.

Poured from the bottle into a stemmed wine glass.

Khaki and yellow four finger swiss cheese forming head, with some good staying power. Unfiltered looking caramel brown and red body, almost like a sweet potato red color skin, and some dark orange. There some fine cola carbonation stuck to the sides of the glass, and some clumpy tops retention ans sticky lacing.

Nose is kind of odd. Sweet malts, and a little bit of brown sugar, followed by an odd perfume like sweetness, slightly floral. Really not getting a hop impression on this in any particular direction. Some slight toasty brown ale like grainy character also. Weird.

Palate is just bizarre. Weak bodied mouthfeel papery and wet. Candy cake like finish, with a strange icing sugar wet quality. Mid palate doesn't last or coat anywhere for flavor. Faint watery caramel and even a flat seltzery body like dead Perrier. Hops? Where? Who knows. Lifeless body and flavor.

You know when people say they don't like an IPA, usually it's cause they are comparing it against a multitude of amazing ones that many can't match up. Even some breweries make passable ones, but this is just not even getting to style let alone enjoyable.

Not a typical IPA in that there is not hoppy bite on the finish, but there is plenty of hops on the nose, and as the brewer explains, it is balanced with extra malt on purpose to avoid the over hopped finish. Solid flavor.

Another offering from my native New Hampshire. I liked their smoked porter quite a bit, and I am hoping that this one is good as well. Bought from Craft Beer Cellar in Nashua.

L- Light bronze/light amber color, nice foamy head that took a while to dissipate. (4.25)

S- Earthy slightly herbal hops, light brown sugar, sweet malts. Not a lot of citrus, I am guessing this is more of a British/Belgian IPA. Always up for something different! (4)

T- Malty, bready, the hops take a definite background in this one. Earthy, spicy, but not overly bitter for an IPA. There is an off-aftertaste that's somewhat off-putting; I don't want to say it's skunky, but it definitely has a somewhat acrid aftertaste. Maybe it's the hop selection. It detracts slightly from the overall taste but it definitely does not ruin the beer by any means. (3.5)

F- Light to medium, this is a good winter IPA as it is more warming than it is refreshing (if that makes any sense). (3.75)

O- Despite the somewhat off flavor in the finish, this is a good brew overall. Again I compare most IPA's to Sierra Nevada's Torpedo or Celebration Ale or even Lagunitas IPA, and this one is not as hoppy as the aforementioned brews. But, it is a rather pleasant and slightly different IPA that is bound to satisfy any beer connoisseur (3.75).

Bottle from Bert's First delivery from a newcomer to the NH beer scene.
Pours a crystal clear deep golden/ amber color with a huge frothy and bubbly milky white head that persists forever leaving lots of sticky lace on the way down the glass. Aromas of bready and caramel maltiness with plenty of grapefruit, citrus, and pine to counter. Very light almost Belgian like yeasty phenols round out the aroma. The flavor is quite malty with some bready brown sugar and caramel malts offset with a firm earthy pine hop flavor. Light to moderate level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice brew, a bit rough around the edges but quaffable just the same. Could benefit from a bit less crystal maltiness and more late hopping.

L - Poured a clear amber with a huge creamy white head. Way too foamy. I could only pour a couple inches into a pint glass before it foamed right to the top. Took a few minutes to dissipate.

S - Caramel malt and just a hint of floral hops.

T - Good malt backbone with some mineral bite. Not overly hoppy. Very much a traditional IPA.

F - Light/medium body. Light carbonation.

O - A tasty, classic IPA. Would drink again.

A - Crystal clear amber body with three fingers of light tan head. Really nice retention and lacing.

S - Citrus and some malt sweetness

T - Slight citrus hop, not too strong. More toasted malt and spices.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick and drinkable, not too sticky.

O - This was ok. Nothing too exciting. Definitely very drinkable and was enjoyable, but could use more complexity.

Very cloudy dark copper color with a full off-white head. Slight caramel aroma, with some pine and resin behind it. Roasted and caramel malt notes come through in the flavor, with a very strong bitter finish. The hop notes appear to be earthy and floral in nature. Full bodied, with a touch of slickness in the mouthfeel. This appears to be looking for a balance between an American IPA and an English one.
