Beautiful IPA. Lovely balance. So glad it's back in CT. Lots of citrus, lots of hops. Little more west coast style all in all, but really just wonderful. Super fresh too! Nose is a little lighter than some big DIPAs, but it's still more than enough to get your mouth watering. And the actual flavors follow suit perfectly.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, 1/2 finger of head, dissipates quickly.

A - Golden/red amber, looks syrupy in the glass, slightly hazy (prefer more haze).

S - Pineapple, mango, banana, pine resin, raspberry, and some bready qualities.

T - Pine resin, tropical fruit blend, raspberry, bitterness.

M - Nice carbonation feel, not overly watery, goes down smoootthhh.

O - A very nicely done IPA.
