I’m a big fan of this beer. Released fresh nearly every month, the flavor is hard to match or even compare to. Solidly bitter with a very unique and enjoyable blend of hops. The June bottling of 2013 may be the best beer I’ve ever tasted.

On tap at Battleship. Pours an gold/orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is of hops, a nice citrus lemon & orange, grapefruit and some pine. Taste is the same. Citrus hops, grapefruit, nice and crisp. Leaves a citrus hop finish. I like this one.

Draft at Fitzwilly’s in Northampton, MA. Hazy gold body with little head. Citrusy hop aroma and flavor, medium-bodied. Decent enough.

16 oz. draft. Orangish gold hazy pour. Smell is citrusy lemon orange peel and grapefruit with a big piney hop wallop. Taste is very hoppy nice bitterness and citrus notes. Decent IPA.

Pours a rich golden color with two fingers of off white foam. The nose is clean and citrus forward with juicy grapefruit, soft caramel malts and a touch of pine. The palate is well balanced and dialed in with great hop flavors that follow the nose. Nice round grapefruit on the front end moves slowly into a round malty sweetness and a bitter piney finish. Good stuff thought at close to $8.99 a bottle it priced a bit high to revisit over and over.

Deuce deuce from social wines in Southie. Nice deep golden pour with bright white albeit thin head. Crisp citrus smell but not as strong as other west coast IPA's. Balanced with floral hops and slight malt taste. Very drinkable. Would like to try on tap.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy and resinous hops, plus some pale and light caramel malts. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops but not enough malts to balance it out. Average to smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

Really loved this cloudy unpastuerized Beauty. Reddish...great hops...heavy palate. Like Wedge Iron Rail. A real craft beer that’s a little raw

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at mead hall..aroma of grapefruit..quite catty as well..taste is decent to start typical of a well made hoppy offering..however the palate dramatically thins out and really does not live up to to the hop presence..a bit watery thin..not substantial enough..
