A classic IPA from a great little brewery in Gloucester. It has a nice amber tint with a frothy head that is reminiscent of sea foam. As you sit outside at the Cape Ann Brewery's tap room looking out at the fishing boats come in an out of port, it just makes the beer taste even better. Nothing too extraordinary, but has some flavor with hoppy and floral notes. A great beer to drink outside near the ocean.

Nothing special, but not bad.

A: very hazy - almost murky; a dull burnt orange in color; 1 finger khaki head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: quite malty; citrus and earthy also;

T: a little more hop character here than in the aroma, but this is not a hop forward beer; what hop presence there is
is mostly citrus; finish is mild to moderately bitter;

M: medium bodied' moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: I would have scored this higher if they called it an English IPA, but as a West Coast IPA, it's not that good;

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on August 10, 2015.

A medium amber heady pour with yellow highlights. Good lacing.

Floral, fruity, and pine hop notes with a decent caramel malt ester under it all.

The body tends to fall into the medium range and it is smooth.

The taste exhibits a more fruity character but there are still underlying caramel roasted malts in there. Some lingering bitterness.

Cloudy Amber color with a half inch head. Fruity bubblegum aroma. Bubblegum aroma stays with a piney bitterness. Thin body.
Overall decent IPA. Drinkable beer.

Much more malty than hoppy. Not what I look for in an IPA.

Much better beer in my opinion than how its being rated on BA. I am drinking a draft. A tad sweet. Right amount of hops. Great ipa.
