Can share at Proof courtesy of Matt Masterson. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow. Good bubbly white head that lasted almost a minute. Thin collar. Nice spicy, piney hop aroma with a fair amount of malt sweetness noticeable. Taste is the same. Great. Again, not a piney hop fan, but when it’s done well, it really works. High carbonation and medium body. rmbjspd (21) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
a terrific dipa with a bunch of hop funk and flavor; very drinkable, almost tasted like some of my favorite wet-hopped ipas, though apparently it’s not. jacobrm (39) - - MAR 10, 2015
Cloudy golden tan color with moderate white head. Extremely well balanced. Aroma and aftertaste could be improved. Overall very good beer

On tap in Middletown, Connecticut. Really a smooth, tasty east coast IPA. If i find this one again Ill be sure to order it ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2011
A - Pours a very bright cloudy orange-yellow color with a finger of off-white head. The head fades fairly quickly to a ring, lacing nicely around the glass.
S - Aroma is packed with floral and citrus hops. Lots of them. Lots of grapefruit and orange. There is also a touch of malt that breaks through also.
T - Starts off with lots of citrus hops with lots of grapefruit flavor. Also a floral/grassy hop back bone. There is a touch of malt sweetness that gives some depth. Through the middle a really nice bitterness comes through with a lot of piney hops flavor. The finish has some strong bitterness mixed with some grassy flavors and even more of the citrus flavor really blending together nicely and lingering for a while.
M - Medium bodied with a moderate amount of assertive carbonation. Really smooth and crisp thorough the middle. And the finish leaves a really strong dry finish which is really nice.
D - Very drinkable. At 8.8% abv, this beer stays super smooth and crisp. The hop profile is really amazing. Lots of complex flavor that mixes together for a really excellently balanced beer.

Wow what a great beer. Lends itself more to a very hoppy IPA than the normal sweetness I find in a lot of IIPA. Tons of grapefruit peel, earhty hops, spicy hops..hops galore! Perfect amount of caramel malt keep this one grounded just enough. Really well done. evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Ported from BA.
Hazy orange with about 3/4 finger of head. No real visible carbonation. Some yeast sitting on the bottom of my tulip.
Sweet malt, and a good amount of grassy/earthy hops. A slight lemon/lime scent makes an appearance too, behind what I can only describe as spicy citrus.
Here goes! A bit sweeter than I was expecting, but a much earthier hop flavor than I’ve become accustomed to. Kind of a grapefruit texture and very low bitterness. The aftertaste is all grapefruit in fact.
Full and thick, this one definitely sticks to your cheeks, once again similar to grapefruit citrus.
Extremely high. I feel like I could drink this all night, any night. Assuming it’s a hops night. I would definitely buy this if I could get it in my area. HeadyDE (851) - Delaware, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Dark orange color..can pour..slight white head..fairly hazy with small suspended particles..just picked up in ct..pretty fresh..canned it looks like 1/13...aroma is quite remarkable with mango..nectarine..apricot..bit of pine as well..bit of wet grass/ hay..taste is more of the same..a good representation of the nose..nectarine..fresh squeezed citrus dominant..rounded out by some sweet caramel notes..moderate amount of bitterness that lingers some on finish but isn’t overpowering..finish is really solid..absolutely no trace of the high abv..this is extremely smooth and deserves the kudos it gets for one of the better 2ipas out there..east coast..west coast..doesn’t matter this is quite well done from New England brewing.. philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Growler at brewery. Pours cloudy golden with off-white foamy head. Moderate aroma of pine with citrus behind. Big bitter, hoppy, piney flavor carried by medium/big body with soft natural carbonation. Full and complex flavor profile evolves through well balanced middle tapering to an easy soft bitter end. Overall a lovely brew that invites you to savor every new sip.

Murky gold pour. Citrus pine hop aroma. Nice balanced floral taste. Smooth start to finish. A good ipa from a can, love the picture. Worth it to try again. On my top 10 ipa list
