Pours a hazy light orange with fine, soapy head.

Smell is juicy and a bit floral with notes of rose water, orange, grapefruit, nectarine and melon.

Taste is juicy and hoppy. Slightly boozy with notes of apricot, dank melon, nectarine and grapefruit. Some floral and herbal hints and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, sof and well carbonated.

Overall, a nice, balanced NE IPA, which was be excellent if the booziness was lower.

This was yet another beer that I traded for a while ago as the date on the bottom of the can read 7/14/17 with DDH EL DORADO, AMARILLO, MOSA written underneath that. Never had a beer from Battery Steele before and since this was from Maine, I got the impression that this would be an easily enjoyable, nicely crafted New England IPA, which is exactly what this turned out to be!

Nice, golden hue to this beer that was cloudy and topped off with plenty of somewhat-quickly settling head. Only a few thin rings of lacing stuck around along the back side of my pint glass as I sipped this. Apricot, stone fruit, nectar, dank hops, and subtle flora notes came through in the aroma as the taste was balanced, doughy, and oddly reminiscent of wet dew. Lots going on here but nothing overpowered everything else as the aftertaste was tingly and minty on my teeth, with a bit of gumdrop keeping things sweet and lively.

This felt stronger than it was in actuality because the alcohol complemented the flavors and the hops that were present, especially the Mosaic. Plenty to proverbially and literally chew on here even though this didn't break any new ground. If you love the style or IPA's in general, this would easily suffice but it's not one that would anybody over to it from what's preferable...

Not for me. There’s a super bitter hop the burns the throat a bit.
