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 isnít 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..doesnít 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, Iíd call this a regular IPA. Itís not bitter, not boozy and very approachable. If only it came in bigger cans.

Can. The pour is light and hazy. The aroma is full of hops with a decent amount of pine. The taste is bitter, but not overpowering.

12oz can: Finally got a hold of one of these. This one pours a orange-tinged hazy darker golden color. There was a very small white head on it that doesnít linger or leave much lacing. Tons of hops in the nose of this one. Lots of resinous pine, and some citrus. Not much else making it past. Taste is very good. Bitter, but some residual sweetness bubbling up. Pine, biscuit, citrus, some caramel malts. Just a touch over medium bodied. Very Nice!

Pours a "chunky" light orange hue...very reminiscent of its northeast cousin The Alchemistís Heady Topper.
The nose belies itís hop bomb flavors. I admit Iím a bigger fan of West Coast style IPAs, but this brew is an amazing lesson on how the best East Coast IPAs got their reputation.
