Purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont, MA, enjoyed at my quaint B&B in Boston. Happy to have finally found a place that had a CT beer! Appearance is a slightly cloudy gold with a thin frothy white head. Aroma has a light pine hop smell with a crisp malt backing, smells nice. Taste is pretty good, goes down slightly crisp but also with a good bitterness. There's nothing exceptional about this, but it's pretty solid.

Bottle. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bitter flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Draft at the brewpub. Reddish tinged amber beer. Drinks with a metallic hoppiness, finishing with that funky, mushiness you get in some homebrews. Improves as it warms, but my least favorite here so far. (#4902, 1/14/2013)

Tap. Deep amber with small head. Sweet with substantial malt base and hoppy bite. Pretty big ipa, but not crazy about the hops.

Poured amber color out of a bottle. Interesting packaging. Nice hoppy citrus smell. Flavor was very bitter and didnít have enough balance for me but i look for more malty overtones in my beers.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty standard IPA.

On draft at the brewery. Meh, way too malty, if youíre not gonna drop bank on hops then drop the abv. How hard is that?

For those who love a good all american IPA this beer is excellent. Bitter but not too crazy, and no complaints whatsoever!

Bottle. Pours medium orange with a large white head. The nose is light sweet grain, some orange peel and herbal hops. The taste is bitter orange peel and sweet cereal. Hot alcohol flavors have a real presence on the finish of this beer, and dominate the residual tastes left in your mouth. It drinks above itís 7.2%, not a great thing in my book. I talked to a few locals while I was drinking this, and they informed me that this is usually much better on draft. Perhaps a flawed batch? Anyway, not a great IPA.
