Available at any bar in MA. Great goto IPA. Not too bitter for those who cant handle the stronger IPAs, but still a great flavor. Will enjoy many more times.

I drank this beer straight from the bottle. The aroma was quite hoppy and flowery. The flavor was very hoppy which was balanced out with some maltiness. This is a pretty good IPA. Nothing special.

12 bottle. Pours clear straw/golden. Malt flavor balances the hops nicely, as Iím drinking I think Iíd love it to be drier but with the same hop profile. You can smell the hops bitterness. The beer lingers a few seconds on the tongue and roof of the mouth, interesting sensation.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 One of the best IPAís around, this coming from a BIG IPA fan. For a real treat, try it from the brewery in South Boston during a "Harpoonfest", where the beer is yards away from where itís brewed.

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2002
Not the worlds best IPA. Lacks the true hop bite and has minimal head. I did enjoy the aroma and thought...Wondered, if the draft might be just a tad better. Still, any IPA is pretty darn good as far as Iím concerned. Makes me feel like getting out there and mowing the lawn, er, I donít really have a lawn yet but...Some day.

Golden color with a thin white lace head. Bold malt aroma with pine smelling hops in the backrgound. Sweet, very malty taste and a nice pine finish.

fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle. Smooth drinking. Nice orange color and aroma. Moderately bitter, but good with food as itís not overpowering. Not the first IPA Iíd grab, But not off-putting by any means.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Not bad, but just another average IPA. Nice color, fair head, and nice lacing with a taste and palate that suits a hot day where more than a few will do.

Aroma has a balanced smell of bread malt and piny hops. Flavor is hoppy with some citrus notes. Itís good!
