This definitely is one of the best IPAs I’ve had. The mouth-feel kind of reminds me of Centennial IPA from Founders in that it’s slightly oily. While I tend to prefer the mouth-feel similar to the 60 minute and Stone’s IPA when I’m drinking this style of beer. That aside, I can’t think of anything else that remotely turns me off. The first thing that struck me: malt and hops are so well balanced. Citrus notes from the hops give way to raisins and a bit of caramel from the malt and then finishing with a clean, bitter hop flavor that doesn’t linger too much. This is phenomenal. The flavors are so well rounded with just enough of that lingering hoppy bitterness to not be cloying. This coming from a person who is really picky about his IPAs.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Отличный IPA. Сложно сказать что-то запомнившееся. Привезён из Штатов. Выпит в Москве. Пивоварня топовая, есть желание попробовать в ней всё.

Bottle 12oz. Clear amber with a creamy white head. Strong malty, caramel aroma (where are the hops???). Rich taste of caramel. Not sure what this IPA is supposed to taste like, but I miss the hoppy flavour. It has a subtle bitter finish, but that’s about it.

12 oz bottle poured at Randy's in Methuen. Pours orange with a white head. Smells malty and citrusy. Tastes like malt first and foremost with an orange peel and alcohol finish with a touch of hops to boot. Good but not what I would call an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2017 My absolute favorite beer. Malty and sweet, tastes more like a barley wine than a hopped up IPA

Excellent IPA... Maybe the best American IPA that I have proved. I drunk during an Amtrak trip fron Washington to New York, and I got really surprised ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good overall beer, but I would not consider it an IPA. It’s not hoppy enough. It tastes sweet (caramel), malty, balanced.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and floral. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter.
