Vigorous pour into Alchemist stemless glass. Pours a cloudy amber color with a very thick foamy head that lingers for a long time. A very strong hoppy aroma that is quite pleasant. Unfortunately the flavor doesn't back it up. It's there, but more subtle. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth with a nice biting finish. Heavy lacing left behind on glass.

IPA, but tastes similar to a lager. Good aroma, but lacks the impact of an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured a 12oz can into a goblet. There was no decipherable freshness date.
Appearance: Hazy body with an apricot or tangerine skin hue. Forms a small, white, foamy head which laces and retains well.
Smell: Citrus juice concentrate, strong pine notes, and a hint of spice rack character.
Taste: I always appreciate a solid IPA even if the recipe seems a bit familiar. New England Brewing Sea Hag IPA isnít all that unique in the crowded market of American IPAs, but itís a good one worth trying. It has components of both coasts plus a little spicy finish which makes for a satisfying beer.
Pale maltiness up front with some light honey character. A quick shift to bitterness at the top of the swig with a dank citrusy flavor of juice concentrate instead of crisp juice itself. The finish is even more memorable; a sharp bite of dry bitterness along with a slight garlic-like taste and a hint of pine on the aftertaste. Iíve experienced all these flavor components individually, but rarely together, which makes this an interesting and well-balanced brew.
Drinkability: I was extremely pleased by the ease with which New England Brewing Sea Hag IPA went down. The mouthfeel is comfortable with a fairly soft texture, but still lively enough to notice dull. The fact itís only 6.3% ABV is quite impressive as it seems to have the weight of something bigger. Itís nice to drink a single IPA thatís so flavorful and drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow-orange color with a medium fizzy white head that evaporates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, pine and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
