A very solid IPA. Draft pint at Logan Theater. Ripe tropical melon with a bready backbone and floral notes. The hops are the star here, and this beer allows them to take control without leaving the beer unbalanced. At 6%+ this is very sessionable.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Crystal clear new copper with a big white head. Lots of carbonation and tons of lacing. Lots of pine, spice, floral, apricot and grapefruit in the aroma. The flavor is just as great, with really nice balance and lingering pine and spice hop character. High carbonation lends a soft mouthfeel. Was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Hazy golden orange; lots of carbonation. Big fluffy head, two fingers-worth.
Beautiful hop aroma; very oily pine scent. The malt scent is bready and gives the perfect balance. I could seriously inhale this baby all day.
The taste is absolutely terrific: rounded piney hops, soft malts, a minty finish.
The feel is smooth and medium-bodied. Itís really a wonderful beer; a prototype IPA. Keep it fresh.

This has a handsome pour,m and amber body with a touch of gold topped by a thick ecru head. This aroma is resinous and has touches of grapefruit (pink?) and zest. The malt is quiet in the flavor, a bit of soft caramel sweetness, while the hop tastes, reflective of the nose, fill the mouth. The 50 IBUs provide a sturdy bitterness that begins midway and lasts into the prolonged dry finish. Nice. Simple and nice.

Nice fruity hop aroma. Fresh and strong. Nice hazy orange color with a tall tan head. Outstanding malt backbone out of the gate. Rich sweetness with roasty caramel notes, then layered with sharp, bitterness from the hops. Peppery and smooth, bitterness balances nicely with the malt. Hidden in there is citrusy notes of orange. Finishes with a bitter end that lingers. Solid IPA

On tap. Pours a clear orangish gold with a with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grapefruit and earthy pine with an earthy grain back bone. Flavor has much more of a grapefruit and onion combination with a bit of earthy grain backing.

[Tap] Hazy deep golden pour with a large cap of white head. Looks more like an unfiltered wheat beer than an IPA. Grapefruit, tangerine and light floral aromas. Taste is more resinous and includes pine sap, citrus, orange zest, grapefruit and lighter bready malts. Excellent balance and nice palate. A great beer!
