12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 11/8/21, so 6 weeks old.

Looks pretty good in the glass. Crystal clear pale golden yellow body. Small white head shrinks to a ring and covering, and leaves a sheet of lacing.

Piney resinous aroma, and something a little off.

On tasting, slightly bitter, nice pine notes, maybe a hint of grapefruit at the end.

Mouth above medium, finish bitter.

Overall, decent enough beer. There was something a little off in the aroma and finish, but only a little. Couldn't figure out what.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchased from a variety pack. Pours golden yellow with initial foamy head though no retention. Good hops taste up front = though very subtle = with a bitter but pleasant after taste on the rear. No malt balance but not overpowering. Good.

Picked-up a twelve pack at Luke's in Plymouth for about eighteen dollars. My eighth brew reviewed from these guys. Canned on date on 9/21/21. Just ok, strange taste.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 10/13/21. Sampled Dec 11, 2021.

Attractive golden pour with a tremendous and lingering cream colored head. Nice clarity.

Pine and floral hop sensations greet the nose immediately and there is a bread and biscuit character on the malt side. Smells balanced and clean.

Medium or better mouthfeel. Smooth.

Th taste starts out sweet and then those bitter pine and floral hops storm in and linger at the finish. Balanced. Nice. Easy to drink.

Bottle. Beautiful CLEAR bright golden copper with lasting small head and lace. Piney hop aroma with hints of fruit and melon. Medium sweet grainy honey peach apricot sweetness with medium piney resiny bitterness. Medium body, fine carbo accentuates hops. Personally, my favorite IPAs are midwest - CLEAR with some tropical fruitiness and a little pine. Excellent. New ENgland IPAs are gross.

Pours a translucent honey /orange color with a healthy creamy/foamy head. Smell is mostly an herbal spiciness most like pine.fresh hop smell. Taste is initially bitter with a nice hop blend and some delicious caramel malts to round it out. Feels well carbonated and leans towards a thin body. Lets face it there are thousands of IPA's but this one is really good.
