4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2013 On cask, hazy gold, thin ring of white head, very soft medium body, very light co2.
aroma: lots of sweet resiny hops.
T1: creamy pale malt.
T2: sweet biscuity malt, resiny piney hops.
T3: sticky hop resin.
wonerful texture, but the hops are very sticky and resinous. I think itís great on cask, but would be more sessional on tap.
From can: not as good, would probably knock each aspect down one notch.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 12 oz can. New England Brewing Company, was a favorite of mine when I lived in NE, and it is nice to see them make a push into the Mid-Atlantic. Sea Hag IPA is an excellent IPA with lots of good hop aromas and bitterness, on an excellent, malty base. This beer pours to a rich, bright, deep amber, with a thick, creamy, off white head, and a good carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent with really fragrant aromas of pine and citrus, paired with some pale and sweet malt. The palate on this beer is firm, with lots of good pale and caramel malt flavors, paired with a nice under tone, of juicy, estery fruit flavor. Sea Hag finishes with more good pale and caramel malt up front, then end with a very good, piney/citrus hop bite that lingers. Very well done IPA with great hop and malt character. I like the fact that New England Brewing cans their beers, and Sea Hag IPA is a welcome addition to my beer fridge.

Deliciously hoppy aroma. Fine chestnut body. Surprisingly depth of flavour with hops, malt, molasses... Good stuff.

Aroma: Citrus, citrus, and more citrus. A lot of grapefruit and orange rind. Nice and bright.
Appearance: orange and hazy. The head is nice and white. Great lacing.
Taste: Nice west coast IPA profile, citrus, bitter, not a lot of pine which I love. Very drinkable.
Palate: medium body and well carbonated with a nice bitter finish.
Overall: This is my go to IPA in CT. I love it and think it is vastly underrated. If you like citrusy, grapefruit forward beer than this is for you.

This is a SOLID IPA. It has great hoppy notes along with a deep rich color. I can get floral notes aloing with some caramel and chocloate flavors....KILLA!

Thanks to jjpm for this one. It pours a nice dark coppery ruby color with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is hops, some fruit, some caramel malt. Tastes briskly hoppy, with a slightly piney, slightly fruity, citrusy, very crisp hop flavor, coupled with a well balanced caramel malt presence. This is another outstanding canned pale ale variant. Iíve had more great canned beers this year than the previous 20. Iíd walk down the street at night in Harlem for a case of this.

Dark orange color with a head that is more tan than off-white, it looks tasty. It smells hoppy without being piney or fruity. The flavor is much more malty and chewy than I would expect from an IPA but I like it a lot. The weird thing about this beer is it feels like a low ABV barleywine in my mouth with a chewy toffee flavor, the hops are there but this is just weird. I wonder how fresh this can is but I guess it doesnít matter since it tastes good. This IPA is not what I am used to but I sure am enjoying it, recommended.
Serving type: can

i have had this beer fresh from the brewery, its one of the best ipaís i have ever had. its not overly done. the malts and hops are perfectly adjusted, its a smooth taste with just enough hops to please any hop head. the caramel malt hits the palate first with a nice bite of hops on the finish. love this!
