Not the best ipa ever, but a decent beer overall. Pretty typical in terms of bitterness. A little less alcohol than most ipa’s.

This is a very mild IPA, but a refreshing change from some of the extreme hop heavy beers out there.

A good IPA. I had this one from the keg last night. Well hopped, but with an aftertaste from the hops that made you drink more to kill the aftertaste. Nice aroma. A overall good IPA. Not the best IPA out there, but I wouldn"t hesitate to drink it again.

Not a bad IPA, refreshing and crisp, several of these goes down easy. Nice aroma of hops, but not overpowering. A little malt body but not too sweet. Quite tasty

Poured into pint glass, white head, very floral scent, taste of floral hops. Pretty simple IPA, not incredibally hoppy but a nice bitterness.

Pours light amber color with a small white head. Aroma is bready with a little bit of citrus hop present. Flavor is bready malts, citrus, and a bitter finish. Not very complex, but easy drinkability. Medium to light bodied.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice gold with a decent head. A very nice citrus/floral/hoppy aroma. Flavor was bitter, with a touch of sweetness. A dry/bitter finish. One of my recent favs.

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 I’m drinking I think I’d 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.
