Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of piney hops, some tropical fruits, lemon, orange peel, some light caramel. Flavour the same. Full bodied, well balanced, bitter with a smooth mouth feel. Nice and dry.

Pale amber pour. Some haze and small amount of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Large floral, slightly juicy aroma. Orange. Taste is clean hops and bitterness. Bitterness is everywhere, but remains soft. Light orange and floral hops come out in the back. Malt is pretty subdued. Some candy sweetness pops up, but is mostly hidden. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Tasty, but lacking complexity. Too big and bitter to be quaffable, but not quite big enough to be a snifter sipper. A little thin on the body as well. Might be better as a slightly dialed back 7% IPA. Very enjoyable and tasty, but not quite top tier.

Really good Double IPA. Great hops taste with nice notes of cirtis and pine. Very drinkable for a double IPA. Well done New England brewery

In short: A tasty, bitter, refreshing and fruity pale IPA of superior quality
How: A few cans from Ernesto987, consumed fresh a few days after purchase, thanks a lot Ernesto
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: Nose is fresh fruity hops with apricots being the dominant fruity esters backed by other citrusy fruits and notes of pine tree. Taste has crisp honeyed malts and a whole lot of fresh fruity/citrusy hops (oranges, apricots, grapefruits, mangos…) and light pine-tree. Bitterness is sharp and of medium intensity. Balance is slightly towards the bitter hops. Tasty and refreshing hop-fix, very good. I wonder what happened to Gandhi? The dude seemed nice, he made one great movie and then I never heard from him again.

Drank a few ounces of this from courtesy of one of my buddies. Poured a medium-golden color with a white head. Aroma was a touch of grapefruit and pine, which translates pretty well in the flavor as well - a pretty good hop-heavy brew.

Cloudy yellow, copper. White head vanishes but holds a film. Danky aroma. Dirty. musty flavor like the hold in a ship. Dry, mild bitter finish. Dream on a Tuesday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL thanks to Dan Fromson. Pours a clear, deeper golden with small, white head. Sheety, complete lace. Nose is big alcohol, fruity melon, sugary strawberry, strawberry daiquiri. Taste is sweaty, melon rind heavy, big jackfruit, mangosteen, sugary strawberry. Walnut skin bitterness gets a bit too harsh.Thankfully not totally sticky and candy corn forward at this point still exhibiting tropical hop character.
