look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Golden in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Light in flavor. Pine, grapefruit pith and orange zest. Lower in sweetness. Light bodied. The boardslide was a way better apa than this.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a burnt golden color with a slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen ever so slightly rising to fill a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Not much lace. The aroma had some sweet danky onion, light citrus and a little bit of sharp bitter pine. Low malt quality - really subtle. The flavor was moderately sweet through the previously mentioned aromas. Bitterness did find it’s way into the overall taste fairly nice. The aftertaste was fully blended. Finish was danky sweet and bitter pine. The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps slightly under with a clean sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, pretty nice APA worthy of having again.

Can poured into stemless wine glass. Hazy yellow straw with thick foamy head, just off-white, settles slowly into thin cap.

Citrus, grassy hops and a bit of grapefruit pith in the aroma.

Flavor is floral, citrus and light fruit. Some grassy and earthy hops but overall smooth and not aggressive. Light bitterness balances the hint of sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and lighter than medium body. Clean and refreshing.

A nice easy going brew, nothing really wrong with it. I could sip on a few in a row and be content. I think I would like in the summer as a beach beer.

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..

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 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.
