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.

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).

Clear, bronze-to-crimson appearance, with a firm, frothy, creamy top, quite attractive. Aroma: caramel malt, hops, crisp, appley, fruity, definitely more of an English IPA bent to it...there’s Cascade hops, but also "Noble" ones, so there’s a bit of both going on...interesting. Taste: snappy! Malty, but plenty bitter and hoppy, then ending dry off of the tongue. Nice play on the tongue here, good texture, medium-to-full bodied, with a classic fruity-to-dry finish. Tasty stuff! Again, an intriquing blend of American and English hops makes for a fascinating amalgam in this Sea Hag IPA. Only one question remains in my mind...would Popeye like it?

Ya can’t get theya from heeya! But you can get an IPA---in a can! Wow. This is one of the better canned beers I’ve ever had. Of course, that’s like saying you thought you had an alcohol problem until you married into the Kennedy’s. The color is a beautiful amber with a nice, thick head. There is neither anything spectacular about this brew, nor anything offensive. This is a good, run-of-the-mill medium-hopped IPA. Nice on a hot day. The can brought back memories, or, at least the idea of memories I should have had, if not for the mass quantities of alcohol consumed while making said memories.

Stine (1661) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2007
Dark amberish, resin colored pour. Biscuit aroma with caramel, disinfectant and a hint of chocolate mint. Mildly hoppy flavor of orange rind intermingled with thick and sweet toffee malts. Touch of diacetyl. Rich juicy palate, sharp like pineapple, with a metaliic edge. Slighty rough.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
12 oz can. Pours dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Plenty of dry hops on the nose with some faint notes of tangerine zest. Firm on the palate. Nice hop flavor. Not too overpowering. Balanced nicely by some roast malt flavor. Quite a sessionable IPA.

pours dark clear amber with nice head. aroma of pine and floral hops. mousthful is malty with a nice modest floral and bitter hop finish. smelled hoppier than it tasted. i like seeing the micro’s in cans, for those time when it gotta be in a can and you don’t want it to be crap...

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2007
12 oz can, so cute next to a big can of surly. Via Trade probably from jjpm74. Pours Amber with a big white head that quickly fades to a thin top layer. Deadened aroma. Taste is good, and light, but not as bold as West Coast IPA, certainly good, and great for a can, but not big enough.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
(can - 12 oz) Medium copper color with a thick tan head. Aroma is very well balanced. Good mix of malts and hops with a touch of caramel. Flavor is more malt than hops, but there’s some hops underneath it with a smooth middle and a slightly bitter but quickly fading finish. Quite tasty but could use a bit more flavor.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2007
Bonus can courtesy of jjpm74. Malty-earthen aroma with bits of herbal hops thrown in. Flavor is heavy on the malt side - more English IPA like - with enough grassy-herbal hop taste to mix things up nicely. Smooth, easy-drinkin. All good IPAs should come in a nice looking can.

Copper Coloring with Off White Frothy Head. Musty Malt and Hops on the Nose. Thick Creamy Mouthfeel. Oily Body...Musty Malt Foundation and Drying Hops Balancing out...Musty, Lightly Oily Dry Ending. Some Grainy and Caramel Malt Detectable After a Few Sips. Interesting IPA, to be Sure.
