Pouring at the 2016 Micro Brew Invitational in Boston. Pours a hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Big hops, citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, spicy, fruit, melon, mango, soft melon. Slow long grapefruit on the finish with a nice bitterness.

16 oz can from Fiddlehead, poured into a pint glass next door at Folino’s. Looks good; a hazy orange with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes good too; loads of juicy (and to a lesser extent, bitter) hops and some caramel with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied and moderately sticky. Tasty.

Mep3222 (1544) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 8, 2017
Juicy hazy IPA that is balanced with lots of flavor but goes more on the piney bitter side than sweet and juicy. But still some great tropical juicy hops in there.

rocbyter (2119) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - APR 4, 2017
Strong citrus hop aroma. Cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Initially light but quickly developing a bitter middle.

Handypaul (550) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Can. Pours cloudy, yellow with a 2-finger, slightly-yellow, fully-lasting, creamy head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, lightly roasted nuts and grapefruit quick, medium body, appropriate carbonation, flavors of grapefruit and caramel, light to medium bitter and a brief lightly bitter finish.

16oz can purchased at Fiddlehead. Thanks to Julien for the haul. Pours a burnt orangey brown, full and hazy. Thick off white/egg shell head lasting quite a while. Good carbonation through bubbles along my glass. Smells high hops and malts. Small caramel and good citrus notes as well. Sweet and earthy as well. Tastes very hoppy, nice bitterness and citrusy hops. Some sweet caramel malt notes as well. More of a west coast balance of malts and hops in the sense that we don’t get the usual Northeast citrus bomb with this one. Nice full body. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

1upmushroom (5) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2017 does not count
Can. Nice light haze yellowish orange. Citrus and grass hop character for the most part. Somewhat cloying sweetness and definitely boozy.

omhper (24977) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2017
Keg at The Farmhouse, Burlington. Hazy amber, small head. Distinct aroma of pears, grapefruit and papaya. Mid sweet with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Syrup and caramel cuts through the thick hop curtain. Almost metallic bitterish finish. Hops are there, but it is otherwise edgy and basic.

Type: 16-oz. can Glass: Clear 16.5-oz. Belgian ale tulip From: My friend Charlie Price: N/A Purchased: N/A; Received Jan. 27, 2017 Consumed: Jan. 28, 2017 Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial IPA Misc.: Canned on Nov. 18, 2016 Was lucky enough to get 10 pretty sweet beers sent to me by a college buddy. Had not heard of Fiddlehead until he sent it to me. Excited to give it the old college try. Poured a medium yellow hazy color with three fingers of rocky white head. Very light bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. World-class layered lacing. Almost perfect retention. (Sight - 4.50) Smelled Centennial, Amarillo and Mosaic for hops, and most likely Citra as well. Also getting orange blossom, orange creamscicle, tangerine, spoiled citrus fruit, tropical juice and some dankness. (Smell - 4.00) Taste followed the nose for the most part, arguably better. Got orange blossom, orange cream, tangerine rind, orange marmalade, mango, pineapple, pine, green leaves and some grapefruit. For hops mainly getting Centennial and Citra, but still Mosaic and I think Amarillo. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Oily texture. Lively carbonation. Abrupt, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.25) This was pretty good for a NE IPA. Not necessarily my favorite style, but this was good. (Overall - 4.00) 4.06 91 A-
