Hazy orange pour. Fluffy white, soapy looking head. Nice Hershey hoppy nose. Orange, floral. Fresh and crisp. Lemon, orange. Lightly touched by caramel malt. Very strong bitter finish. Soapy and foamy in the mouthfeel. Probably needs the bitterness turned down a touch. Malt is just right, hops are strong. Just really assertively bitter. Awesome addition to the local scene. Clearly not dumbed down for anyone. Tasty stuff.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a deep dark golden color. Aroma is of floral hops, grapefruit, citrus and malts. Taste is of hops, pine, bark, grass and barley with a little resin. A little bit on the carbonated side. Leaves a dry hopped malted taste. It’s always good to help the little guys.

Draft. Pours murky brown with thin white head that lingers. Mild hop aroma with little carbonation. Nice hop bite but not particularly complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rjplumer (357) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2014
An attention getting citrus floral aroma. Hazy amber body on a healthy one finger head that lingers to quarter inch or so. Bitterness grabs you at first. feels peppery on the tongue with carbonation. Leaves a sour taste on my tongue. Seems to finish with a whimper though after it’s stellar start. Not bad overall. Good enough to have again.

Can, thanks WillRunForBeer! Intense fresh citrus and floral aroma. Cloudy amber pour with head that leaves good lacing. Medium mouthfeel with grapefruit rind, floral, and pine flavors. Good malt backbone with a moderately bitter finish.

http://imgur.com/zTbLAUS - Can. Pours hazy orange with overzealous, pillowy, off white head that lasts and laces. Smells of pine, earth, citrus, bread, and homebrew. Drinks with a moderate hop bite. Medium bodied. Moderate lingering hop bitterness. Tastes of bread, earth, molasses, and piney hops.

12 oz can, thanks to Willy for sharing! Golden amber pour, aroma of pine, tropical fruit, and honey. Nice balanced sweetness up front, very crisp and punch of bitter hoppiness to boot. Wish I had acess to this as I would drink a lot of it!

12oz can. Pours a very hazy golden amber with a decent white head. Big pine aroma with flavors of pine, citrus and pepper. Very bitter. Don’t share this one with your pale ale friends. Love the name knowing where the brewery is and the green heads in the area plus the hop bite. Great new brewery, looking forward to tasting more of their brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can thanks to WillRunForBeer!! Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of citrus zest, piney hops, caramel malt, and a hint of yeast. Taste of caramel malt, grapfruit, and bitter sticky pine.
