12-oz. can dated 10/16/18 needed an average pour for a finger sized frothy white head with long retention and streaky lace. Slightly hazy golden straw color appears yellow in front of light.
Big smell of bright piney and floral hops with some citrus and malt sweetness.
Taste begins bitter and semi-dry as caramel malt changes the middle to semi-bitter and semi-sweet with light citrus. Bitterness returns for the quick dry finish as the malt richness fades, the bright hops from the smell plus peppery spice linger on the palate for a while. Medium bitterness overall.
Medium body, above average carbonation. Smooth despite the big hop flavors and bitterness.
Nice balance of hop bite and semi-sweet malt. True to style, difficult to find any fault with this beer.

Canned 10/08/18
Pours a nice foamy bubbly 1 finger head nice retention and lacing, hazy tangerine orange color

Nose little cracker malt, grassy citrus hops, little spicy, fairly light

Taste brings fair hops, grassy citrus, rind, pithy, little tangerine orange and grapefruit, mild cracker toasty malt, mild bitterness esp for an APA, drier finish

Mouth is med bod, decent carb

Overall meh, pretty light all around, nose was super light, taste was ok but not much going on and not even close to enough bitterness for APA

All I can say is I'm happy that a RI craft brewery is making very very solid beer. This is good stuff that smells like sunshine.

12 oz can into IPA glass.
Look is cloudy golden yellow. Smell is tropical fruit/orange/papaya. Taste follows nose very nice citrus top and smooth ending. Feel is nice easy drink. This is a very good APA. Well balanced and a really good drink.

Sharply hopped, light golden ale. Not much nuance here, just a bitter bite and then gone. Not sure how this beer received an Exceptional rating. It's rather one-note and unexceptional, in fact..

Great APA. Perfect baseball, bbq, summertime hot dog and pizza beer.

I tried this at Mews Tavern in Rhode Island. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.
