Can, 1 pint. Semi-cloudy orange with a foamy, lacey offwhite head and light sediment. Aromas of fruity hops, resin, some yeast. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter. Malty flavors into a hoppy, yeasty finish. AdamChandler (5150) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pale orange. Small head. Smells like a corn forward lager with a splash of wheat and citra. Decent carbonation with rye, corn, rice and pepper. Light pine cone finish.

Big white head tops a heavily hazy pineapple golden body. Moderate retention.
Mango, pineapple and bright, lightly agressive citrus in the nose is backed by a bit more malt presence than the series has shown lately. There’s just a bit of pine but it’s mostly pineapple-mango here. No alcohol or flaw.
Little bit undercarbonated, but thankfully it’s well-attenuated and the rye adds dry fruitiness and spiciness, so the palate never really suffers as a result. However, the pineapple, light pine and mango does become quite concentrated which, on one hand adds an enjoyable, big juiciness, but on the other does leave more twangy resinous bitterness than I’d like.
On tap at Lord Hobo in Cambridge, MA. Pint glass. Lighter golden color with an impressive full finger white head. Aroma is slightly floral and citrus. An off smell that seems odd. Taste is very muted for an IPA. Some bitterness, some citrus, grapefruit, grassy notes. Feels very predictable and underwhelming. Drinkable, almost like a session. It morphs into something that doesn’t excite. Like a Taurus.
