COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one's a beauty; a rich and full bodied India Pale Ale with complex malt character blended with cascade and noble hops. The end result is a beer that satisfies the "hop head" out there and won't chase away the newcomer. Drink it. It's good.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 can drunk on 4/20. Amber/ copper color with nice fuffy off white head. The aroma was of light malt and light hops. The taste was pretty good with roasted malts and hops mingling together. Also some chcolate notes were detected. Lacing all the way down glass. Better than I expected.

12 oz can thanks to Ty5592. I like IPAs out of the can this one might be a little old though. Sweet malts in the nose some citrus and hop. Light bodied and the flavor reflects the nose. Some hints of bitterness citrussy sweet. Decent beer.

Can; and I kept it real by drinkin from the can. Pretty nice citrus hop aroma; only slightly metallic. The flavor was similar but hop finish was metallic and a little grassy. The malt was smooth; and overall the beer was slightly creamier than most IPAs.

Amber body, white head, malty nose with some citric hops. Less hoppy than many; well-balanced, good malt character, with moderate hop character.

Bottle: Dark caramel in color, fairly hazy/cloudy, moderate off-white frothy head, spotty lacing.   Hoppy nose, somewhat earthy, a little raw and biscuity.   Much the same on the tongue.   Not the big citrusy/piney bitterness you would expect, but instead a somewhat astringent malt bitterness (if that makes sense).   The hop factor seems green, almost too premature.   This one is underdeveloped.   To me, comes across as a maltier Pale Ale.   Some citrus rind bitterness, but the astringent malt backing seems stronger.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate.   Finish seems a little gritty, raw, and like premature stale hops.   Tiz okay, but I think this one is either over-rated, tastes of "sea hag", or I sat on it too long.   Thanks Paul for the brewskie, and the kick-ass label!   I may need to revisit this one.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Really good stuff here. The 2nd IPA i have ever tried from a can..the first being Furious, which i actually drank right before this one. Nice amber color, good hop flavor for sure, plenty of bite. Very good stuff all around, cans or not, this is one of the best IPA’s i have tasted.

alexanderj (3486) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Can (from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg); poured a large head. Aroma of caramel/toffee malt, slightly roasted, with a hint of pine and citrus hops. A hint of metallic. Flavor is alot like the aroma; much more caramel malt, than hop presence. End result is tasty drinking bear, but lacking a large hop presence. Some sweetness. Best canned beer; but have an Oskar Blues due up...

Part of the fun of drinking craft beer is getting really psyched about new discoveries: drinking big stouts out of my duvel tulip, wearing my new Surly hoodie, bringing home growler after growler of Masala Mama. Right now I am totally into drinking pale ales out of a can. Dales Pale, Surly Furious and now New England Sea Hag. The can allows for a bigger and more open mouthful than a bottle. All that resiny hop and sweet malt just slide down your throat. The Sea Hag is totally my kind of IPA- sweet melony malt and soft fragrant hops. And its all from Woodbridge, Woodbridge Connec-ticut home of Michael and Carol Kligfeld, daughter Jenn and their son Adam- the dog tanya buried in the backyard (choked on a carrot z"l).
