MaBeer1972 (1667) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 On tap at Sunset Grill. Served in a pint glass. A frothy off white head on this murky light amber brew. Strong hop aromas. Floral and spice. Plenty of bitterness. Body on the heavy side, but still very enjoyable. A good pick. Re-rate. 6-pack canned. Now available at Julios. Fantastic! Pucker up with this one. Definately not a "starter" IPA!

Chalumeaux (908) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2016
Poured from tap at Century House deep copper color with a thin white head. Aromas of malt resinous pine and juicy citrus. Taste is caramel grapefruit peel and lingering bitter citrus.

tfontana (505) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2016
On tap in shaker pint glass at Jimmy’s Culpeppers. Aroma is floral dominant. Appearance is light brown with finger-width fluffy white head. Palate was medium bodied with average carbonation. Taste is mild floral sweetness balanced with mild bitter. Overall, a decent IPA. Not terribly complex but a good drink.

Draft. Rich, eye-catching deep copper color. Super-malty aroma. Flavors are a striking mix of big, piney hop bitterness, and deep chocolate malts that keep on chocolating. Wouldn’t want this in July, but it’s pretty super in February.

This beer gets your attention. For a 12oz can from a reasonably new, smaller brewery, I wasn’t expecting to get walloped in the face with hop bitterness quite like this. It’s not a subtle beer, since it comes right at you with its effervescent bite, but it is satisfying and a bit complex.

Canette bue à l’hôtel. Une robe dorée un peu foncée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez avec des effluves de résine, de malt et de fleurs blanches. Une bouche avec des notes amères, des saveurs de malt et de houblons, qu’on de plus. Agréable.

La robe a du style et la tête une coiffe qui lui va bien. Ses parfums de fleurs, de conifères et malts pâles me plaisent bien. Son goût franc de houblons en feuille verte est pondéré par des céréales toastées. Son corps de moyenne densité pétille avec réussite et montre une texture crémeuse. La finale est modérément amère. Facile à boire. Merci à Vincent pour la canette.

Strong in the IPA category you are, hmm. Wonderfully alcoholic for a single IPA you are. Green head flies bite hard and fast. This beer mirrors that. It's pretty good. I am swayed because I'm local. But make a good beer and can it and I will drink it. Maybe add hop leaves. Like alchemist? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Some decent hop flavors over a sticky yet astringent malt sweetness. Not bad, but tincture with an odd dissatisfying linger.

Can. Pours quite hazy orange, large puffy beige head, sticky lacing. Aroma is pine and perfume, hints of dank citrus. Flavor is medium plus sweet, medium plus bitter, caramel, pine, dank, citrus. Full body, viscous mouthfeel. Too sweet, too bitter.
