Can (12 oz). Thanks to Tom! Hazy orange with a frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is fruity with citrus (orange, grapefruits, apricots) and piney notes. Taste is moderately malty with citrus (same as aroma), caramel, slight sweet/sugary notes and pine. Moderate but sticky bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Refreshing and drinkable. Very good.

Dark orange color..can pour..slight white head..fairly hazy with small suspended particles..just picked up in ct..pretty fresh..canned it looks like 1/13...aroma is quite remarkable with mango..nectarine..apricot..bit of pine as well..bit of wet grass/ hay..taste is more of the same..a good representation of the nose..nectarine..fresh squeezed citrus dominant..rounded out by some sweet caramel notes..moderate amount of bitterness that lingers some on finish but isn’t overpowering..finish is really solid..absolutely no trace of the high abv..this is extremely smooth and deserves the kudos it gets for one of the better 2ipas out there..east coast..west coast..doesn’t matter this is quite well done from New England brewing..

A peaceful DIPA know for its respect of women with in the Indian (ding dong not feathers) community. Pours golden with a thin off white head. Nose of pine, citrus, and resin. Ample but not overpowering bitterness keeps to the pacifist ways. This one is a tad thin like the man... For a beer of this style, it sure does not make a stand or wage war on your taste buds. Kashmir is ours.

Mild head retention, awesome fresh smell, beautiful burnt orange color, slight alcohol burn, huge hop flavor with a slight citrus finish but balanced perfectly to avoid too much bitterness from the hop profile.

Thanks to a trader for giving me 2 of these in a trade. Enjoyed at 40 Degrees F in a wine glass.
A - Hazy burnt orange appearance. no head
S - Nice grapefruit and pine cone aroma. Very mild aroma, not too dominating. No dry hopping at all which is surprising for DIPA
T - Very explosive flavor! Loads of orange peel, grapefruit juice and pine needle pine resin but citrus is the dominating flavor. Very drinkable, not too bitter and quite an enjoyable beer sip after sip.
M - Medium body, nice carbonation. Very drinkable
O - This beer was surprising. First of all, I’d call this a regular IPA. It’s not bitter, not boozy and very approachable. If only it came in bigger cans.
