honey colour, big creamy head, fresh, lemon and nutty aroma, nice acidity, some astringence, very dry aftertaste - don’t shoot at me but this beer as some analogies with the great Orval.

A pretty good offering from these brewers. Pours coppery. Smells of citrussy and piney hops with a nice malt base. Taste is of citrus, pine, some sage and a tangy malty finish. Mouthfeel is peppery and tingly on this one. Worth a try if one ever finds it on draught.

Big thanks to woosterbill for this one. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice, deep golden color with a good white head. Nose brings some really strong earthy, herbal, and lightly-citric hops. Really, really nice. Taste is along the same lines with a bit of earthy and floral characteristics plus a good deal of pine and some slight citrus. This is a cacophony of hops without any one type really dominating. Slight bready notes. Great bitterness levels and a bit dry. I was not at all impressed with Sea Hag, but this showed me that when they try, NEBC can really bring the hop attack.
Serving type: growler

Growler in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of floral hops, some pale and caramel hops, and some dough. Flavor the same, with a lot of hops for the hops used. Average texture. A good IPA.
