Appearance: hazy medium gold with one fat finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, orchard fruit, light pine, crackery malt, floral. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (4/5)

Yet another new local(ish) brewery, and a really decent NE/IPA. I knew nothing about these guys prior to buying this beer, other than that they were local, and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed. I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more offerings from this brewery. (16/20)
