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.

Can sent to me via mystery swap 2.0. Thanks! Pours dark amber in color with a light tan head. Smell is a little bit of a caramel and toffee fragrance, with a hint of a citrus background. Taste is a bit more on the piney, earthy side than the smell leads on. I also notice a hint of a lemon zest flavor coming through in the background. As the commercial description says, this satisfies me, a hop head, but I think it would be a good beer for a newby or wannabe hop head. A decent beer, in a can.

Lightly hazy, dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, orange, and light pine. Taste of orange, light pine, resiny, and a bitter grapefruit finish.

Damico (2562) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma and flavor both bring balanced sweet orange flavors, almost like orange candy, but the sweetness is so smooth and subtle with light zest ending so pleasantly on the palate The body is full and light at the same time!

Tap at Modern Apizza. Citrus and tropical hop nose, meaty golden malts, peaches and oranges. Decently balanced and tasty beer, though it was way too flat when served to us, which was quite a downer.

Extra from Thomas. Can, no date. Itís an IPA, above average bitterness. Not much else. Serviceable, and drinkable.

YES, this is beer and it tastes good. Letís face it, there is no god, he abandoned us and went to mars, but at least this beer is good. I might be biased since I like IPAs, but Iím not really since this beer is really nucking futs. So in all, I would rather drink Sea Hag than not drink Sea Hag since this hag is a GMILF

Can from Nick... Thanks! From the can. Aroma of citrus and fruity hops. Taste follows, crisp and clean... Maybe some lime in there? Super easy drinking. Great beer.

Bonus in a recent trade that I was pleasantly surprised by. Nice tropical hop profile. A little more body and a bigger hop finish. Bit of metallic bitterness on the finish. Otherwise a nice citra like hop profile that is surprisingly enjoyable.

Poured a golden straw color, pretty clear, large sudsy head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma was dankness, some citrus, and some sweet malts mixed in. Taste was a bit off to me, enjoyed the smell more. It reminded me of Cintra Mantra (if youíve ever tried it). Light body, medium bitter. Not bad, but not for my tastes. Would like to try some other New England offerings to compare.

On tap at WilliBrew: Pours cloudy golden with a decent white head. Aroma is heavy citrus and floral. Taste is more of the same, with a very dry finish. Not as juicy as Gandhi Bot, but this is a pretty damn good IPA for something that is always available. Medium body, good carbonation, very dry finish.
