A beer I have had several times but never reviewed. A 12 oz can into a DFH shaped pint glass. I believe the store received this batch about 3 week ago? A - A clear amber/copper body and a soapy off-white head. I have noticed some variation in appearance with this beer. Some are crystal clear, some have been cloudy, and others have had large grey yeast chunks floating around. The nature of micro brewing I guess. This can looked great. S - Mango, papaya, grapefruit, piney hops, and some malt. Very fruity and smooth. T - Fresh citrus fruit. Peaches, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. Thereís a nice smooth malt backbone here as well. The finish is dry bitter hops. The mouth feel is medium and has some nice carbonation. Doesnít feel oily or slick, very nice. O - Iím not just being a homer when I say I love this beer. Its one of my favorite DIPAís. Its filled with tons of piney, citrusy hoppy goodness but it is never overwhelming or too intense. It keeps its high ABV in check too. I love the fact that its in cans and the artwork is certainly interesting. CTís finest for sure.

Can share at Proof courtesy of Matt Masterson. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow. Good bubbly white head that lasted almost a minute. Thin collar. Nice spicy, piney hop aroma with a fair amount of malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is the same. Great. Again, not a piney hop fan, but when itís done well, it really works. High carbonation and medium body.

A - Pours a very bright cloudy orange-yellow color with a finger of off-white head. The head fades fairly quickly to a ring, lacing nicely around the glass. S - Aroma is packed with floral and citrus hops. Lots of them. Lots of grapefruit and orange. There is also a touch of malt that breaks through also. T - Starts off with lots of citrus hops with lots of grapefruit flavor. Also a floral/grassy hop back bone. There is a touch of malt sweetness that gives some depth. Through the middle a really nice bitterness comes through with a lot of piney hops flavor. The finish has some strong bitterness mixed with some grassy flavors and even more of the citrus flavor really blending together nicely and lingering for a while. M - Medium bodied with a moderate amount of assertive carbonation. Really smooth and crisp thorough the middle. And the finish leaves a really strong dry finish which is really nice. D - Very drinkable. At 8.8% abv, this beer stays super smooth and crisp. The hop profile is really amazing. Lots of complex flavor that mixes together for a really excellently balanced beer.

Wow what a great beer. Lends itself more to a very hoppy IPA than the normal sweetness I find in a lot of IIPA. Tons of grapefruit peel, earhty hops, spicy hops..hops galore! Perfect amount of caramel malt keep this one grounded just enough. Really well done.

Ported from BA. Appearance: Hazy orange with about 3/4 finger of head. No real visible carbonation. Some yeast sitting on the bottom of my tulip. Smell: Sweet malt, and a good amount of grassy/earthy hops. A slight lemon/lime scent makes an appearance too, behind what I can only describe as spicy citrus. Taste: Here goes! A bit sweeter than I was expecting, but a much earthier hop flavor than Iíve become accustomed to. Kind of a grapefruit texture and very low bitterness. The aftertaste is all grapefruit in fact. Mouthfeel: Full and thick, this one definitely sticks to your cheeks, once again similar to grapefruit citrus. Drinkability: Extremely high. I feel like I could drink this all night, any night. Assuming itís a hops night. I would definitely buy this if I could get it in my area.

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..

Growler at brewery. Pours cloudy golden with off-white foamy head. Moderate aroma of pine with citrus behind. Big bitter, hoppy, piney flavor carried by medium/big body with soft natural carbonation. Full and complex flavor profile evolves through well balanced middle tapering to an easy soft bitter end. Overall a lovely brew that invites you to savor every new sip. Fav.

Murky gold pour. Citrus pine hop aroma. Nice balanced floral taste. Smooth start to finish. A good ipa from a can, love the picture. Worth it to try again. On my top 10 ipa list
