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..

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2013
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

(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thick and puffy white head. Fruit is the first thing you get in the nose followed by a juicy citrus hop note. Big hops for sure. The fruit and citrus come through first in the flavor with a ton of hops following it up immediately. Well balanced throughout and leads to a bitter and hoppy finish. Amazing.

Uma das IPAs mais gostosas que tomei. Macia, espuma fina e muito saborosa. Desce mais leve do que qualquer outra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 16oz can in a tulip glass. Pours dark amber color with thin off-white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Strong hop flavor, full body, but a dry, resiny finish that is not as pleasant as some other beers in this category. Edit: 2013 - 12oz can. This beer has changed so much. Every time I drink it I like it more and more. The hops are really strong, but they are smooth and bitter in a pleasant way. The flavor is so hoppy with a nice balance from the malts. Definitely a great beer. Edit: 2014 - Growler. Still one of the best beers in the state of CT, other than the other NEBCO beers.

Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. The glass is left coated with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing. Sweet citrus hop aroma with plenty of earthy notes and a subtle malt presence. Thereís some grassy pine needle and dank hop oils but the tropical/citrus fruits are most prominent in the nose. Lots of mango, grapefruit and citrus rind along with subtle biscuit. Medium bodied with a complex, flavorful hop profile that is nicely balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Bitter and sweet notes play off of each other with hints of dry and bitter pine needle/grass countered by notes of grapefruit and orange. The dry bitterness lasts throughout, even when the sweeter notes come into play and linger into a nice dry finish that leaves me thirsty for me. The malt backbone adds sweetness with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit without getting in the way of the hops. Really well balanced and very flavorful with an excellently masked ABV making it dangerously drinkable. Iím impressed and ISO more!
