Fruity without a harsh bitter aftertaste. Nice hoppiness (dry hopped), without too many IBUís.

12 oz bottle. Pours yellow color, typical pale alt with decent head. I found this more malty than hoppy. I found it to very bland for an IPA.

Appearance- Pours amber gold, single finger head dissipates quickly. Aroma- floral bouquet and light citrus. Taste- Orange peel with a rounded light hops bitterness. Palate- Thin and relatively smooth for an IPA Overall- Meh, decent offering but pretty tame. Easy drinking starter IPA maybe.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. Iíve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Tasted at Harpoon tap takeover at Pony Bar in NYC. Good floral aroma and dark gold appearance, but very disappointing, underwhelming taste. No bite on the hops and not much depth. Tasted watered-down.

Super hoppy. The epitome of hop. Good for what it is, but itís not my deal.

Clean, refined hoppy nose - not too overpowering but enough to give your tastebuds a heads-up as to whatís coming. Perfect golden color with a hint of cloudiness. Nice head that lasts until the glass is emptied. Flavor is pure, clean hops. Medium bodied with a nice soft texture and a (what else?) quick hop finish. This is a New England favorite, found on draft in many a bar íround these parts. Itís obvious why!

More of a golden than a copper color. IPAís have grown on me, so maybe after trying a few more Iíll have to re-rate this one. I like the sensation after taking a good size sip.

This is a much better offering than the UFO. Pours a copper-reddish head with a thin white head. Smells of hops and citrus. Tastes like fruit and hops that has a bit of a bite but not like your typical IPA. Good but not great.
