Fantastic. The beer pours a nice orange/yellow with a nice head that trails the glass. The smell had a lot of great hop notes to it while also getting a little bit of sweetness from the malt. The taste was similar with pine and floral notes from the hops and then a mellow crisp finish. A very well balanced beer that made for a delicious experience. Would definitely recommend.

Poured into a mason jar. Why? Because it was clean.

A- gorgeous. When poured it leaves an off-white head upon a perfect orange body. As you drink the lace sticks to the glass like a sheet of ice and refuses to withdrawl.

S- different. The piney/citrus notes are there like any other ipa, but with a twist of caramel, bread & butter. It simply drops the "drink me" bomb. Obviously, I submit.

T- once again, bread and citrus; with a heavy touch of pine. The caramel cuts nicely against the hops, but doesn't hinder the resins from asserting their roles.

M- full and refined. Silky yet sparkling.

O- much better than I expected. I was assuming it to be just another ipa, but was pleasantly surprised.

From a one pint can.

Aroma is citrus and new mown grass. Pours a deep orange amber with a full foamy beige head. Head lasts a goodly time and lovingly laces the glass. Taste is full on citrus hops , crisply satisfying! Very pleasant aftertastelingerson the palate.

16oz can poured into a pint glass. Pretty unique to see a 4 pack of 16oz cans. Labeling and design of the can are great, including the barcode that resembles the NYC skyline.

A: Hazy with accents of light golden and copper tones. Even with the cloudy nature of the beer, you can see a steady stream of carbonation. A nice 1.5 half finger head that is sticky with interesting stripping on the glass's side (lives up to it's name)!

S: A snap of citrus and piney hops as soon as the can is opened. Intense grapefruit, ester, bread notes with stinky, dank hop notes underneath.

T: A bit sweet at first, but intense hop bitterness follows immediately with an earthy, piney, and tobacco flavor. There's some nice tangerine and pineapple sweetness that temporarily mutes the bitterness. The malt imparts it's own gingerbread type sweetness, but the initial hop bitterness penetrates through the whole sip and lingers on the tongue.

M: Very similar to a grapefruit in that there is some sweet, watery moments but overall there is a bitter, drying effect as well. It all plays out nicely, at times it's a super bitter, full bodied ale that backs off just enough with splashes of lighter bodied freshness and relief.

O: A strong effort from a brewery that has never disappointed, in my opinion. Complex, highly drinkable while maintaining an intensity and full-bodied profile that is memorable. More and more we're finding extremely high quality and challenging beers in cans and this is no exception. Top to bottom, this is a visually pleasing, aromatic, excellent tasting beer.

Appearence: light amber, thick sticky foam that lasts for as long as I've seen head stick around and eventually settles into nice lacing. Light carbonation. A little cloudy.

Smell; a little bread, pleasant fruit. A touch of not unpleasant sourness. Subtle but enticing.

Taste: wonderful fruit flavor of tangerine, pinneapple and grapefruit. The maltiness compliments the hoppy taste In a nearly perfect way. The bitterness is perfectly balanced with the fruit and malt and far from offensive.

Mouthfeel: suprprisingly light. Very smooth. A touch of dryness but not a dry overall experience. Carbonation is light, as it appears to be.

Overall. Refreshing but just filling enough, , drinkable all year. Really impressive and probably caters to a wide range of beer drinkers. Great to introduce novice drinkers to the vast world of craft ales.Would buy again.

I had it at Posto in Somerville Square. Had it on tap as it poured a golden copper color. Nice lacing. It had a smell, but for the life if me I don't know what it is. Had a great hoppy taste. Fantastic malty blend, but it is the crispness of the drink and hoppiness that hits home. Very refreshing beer that doesn't seem like a show stopper for the night sitting at only 6 percent. Good stuff
