4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Main St. Cafe. Man I love this joint. If you live in or travel through CT, make sure to stop here. This IPA is in a long line of incredible IPAs that brewmaster David Wollner has mastered. Murky dark copper color with almost no head. Aroma is all citrussy hops. This is as smooth as smooth could be. Flavor is malty sweet caramel, followed by the perfect amount of hop flavor. Grapefruit and piney to begin with, and a strong biting bitterness in the finish. A huge hop flavor is more than welcome. Don’t miss out on this one.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can’t tell if I love or hate how this looks. Heavy, cloudy orange. Very interesting.
BIG green, skunky hops. Lemony notes and sweet biscuits.
Green and round in the mouth. Slightly acidic hops all up in my grill. Skunkalicious with light eucalyptus and some mango.
Great carbonation, great weight.
Fabulous beer, has a bit of everything and is remarkably light.

An homage to west coast IPA. (what else is there?) nice hop action on the nose. ( you clean clean your floor with it if you run out of pine sol.) lots of clouds amidst the sea of gold. Big hop expression on the tongue. This one has some linger to it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange bronze with a thin, wispy white head. Big citrusy and piny resiny hop aroma has some mild caramel malty sweetness. Body starts fairly full with sticky resiny bitterning hop flavor. Finishes drier and bittersweet with good hop character throughout. A nice IPA.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A good IPA, C-hop aromas and taste. Sheets of lace arising from a very cloudy orange body. Smooth, good drinkability from 75 IBU. Citrus taste.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

On tap at the brewpub. Murky, dirty gold with a small white head. Nose is citrusy, a grapefruit and resin amalgam. Flavor follows uit, with a bit of caramel. Nice, even bitter finish.
