Hazy yellow-orange with ample off white head. Lovely aroma of piney resin, flowers, tropical fruit. Medium-light body with small amount of carbonation. Pine and citrus hop flavors, moderately bitter, some off dry citrus toward the finish, very drinkable with nice flavors. blueshockey24 (716) - Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2018
Can. Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Aroma is citrus. Taste is sweet hoppy citrus with notes of orange and lemon with a similar finish. malrubius (3209) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 13, 2018
Can. Pale cloudy yellow orange with lasting head and lace. Dank pineapple citrus grapefruit wet grass aroma. Medium light fruity citrus tropical fruit sweetness with some light dough and grass. Medium light grapefruit and grass bitterness in fairly dry fruity finish with a little tartness. Medium light soft body, not too bready or fizzy like a lot of NE IPAs. I keep saying I'm not much of a fan of the NE IPA--I like just a slight haze--but this it TOTALLY FUCKING EXCELLENT. One of the best I've had. j12601 (13659) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2018

Draught at Europa Black Rock, 5/27/17.Reynolds314 (3472) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Thoroughly hazy-to-soupy, bright beeswax-bronze with a large, well-retained, white head atop. Quintessential NE IPA appearance.
The nose is a bouquet of tropical fruits and light honey-like malts with a touch of biscuit and cracker. Adding to the guava-mango-juicy pineapple is a more dry, classic, slightly acidic citrus character which contributes lime zest, and tangy orange and a bit more balance, overall. As much as I love the straight tropical juice bombs, they can be a bit overpowering and "sweet" from the lack of acidity that the more citrusy hops provide. Clean as a whistle, with no alcohol noted nor any yeast blandness or resin.
Pillowy soft, comforting malts show light honey and biscuit and high attenuation and engaging, moderate carbonation keeps it drinkable and crisp on the finish. Tons of meyer lemon, over-ripe pineapple, mango and lime lead to an exuberant, bright, juicy hop character quite devoid of any pine or other potentially resinous notes. There’s still a brace of good bitterness on the end, helping to balance and the beer is clean and shows no alcohol. Straightforward NE IPA, though I like the dose of lime-orange-lemon on the finish. Very, very well-executed/brewed. Awesome. Instantly a fan. Incredibly high quality for how young this brewery is. So much potential here (though it’s already delicious).
On tap at beer dinner at Europa. Typical cloudy pale peach new england ipa appearance. Aroma is mango, apple, nectarine, and light resin. Taste is a bit chalky, with some hop resin bitterness and a bit too much residual sweetness. Shows great promise and looking forward to the growth of this local brewery.
