3.5/5  rDev -15.5%

Very clear and light straw colored with an inviting aroma of honey malt and tangerine hops. Rich flavor of pine and citrus hops, a pepper bite, with subtle malt riding beneath. Very hoppy, with great hop flavors. Hop forward with moderate bitterness. Full mouthfeel, finishes tingly, hops warm the cheeks. Haven't had an Ipswich in a while, this one is really good.

A different brew under the Ipswich label. This hop-forward beer lacks the malty backbone present in other Ipswich ales. That's a good thing, and I applaud the brewmaster for changing it up. This is different than anything else from the New England region, for sure, maybe closest to the Sierra Nevada hop harvest offerings, and even Celebration. Try it!

And, if you haven't, try the Ipswich Stout. It's top flight, world-class.

Stopped in at the Hop Harvest release at the brewery on August 23. Had a coupla samples, then out with a case. Good at first sip fer sure. Fast forward to NOW! Givin' it a good tasting tonight, even though it's a school night. Ella hops impart grapefruit and tropical fruit flavors say de bottle.

Nice aroma, hoppy as advertised, and full-bodied in the Ipswich tradition. Solid lacing. Chewy hops. And I AIN'T sending the Bros beer. They can stop by if they need a pop....

Anyways, another great brew from the folks in Ipswich.

This is my first review im not an expert at this so bear with me
It smells resinous and piney with some fruit in there
Taste is the same plenty of bitterness some malt but not too sweet
Mouth sticks around a bit stays on the palate perfect carbonation for my liking
Appearance, well im drinking it out of a bottle but the label is eye catching theres some light lacing on the bottle
overall i think this is an excellent brew i will most definitely buy it again
Not to mention it was brewed 6 days ago 15 minutes away from my house so freshness is always a plus.
highly reccomend.
