Served on-tap at MJ O'Connor's in Boston, Mass.
A: Clean, orange-amber color beneath a frothy head of thin, white foam which left little lacing above the loose carbonation.
S: Sweet and fruity with wafts of citrus and pine in the hop aroma.
T: Nice, sweet caramel malt flavor up front with a little bit of toasted grain. The fruity esters flash quickly before the spicy, floral and bitter hop resins kick in. They are short-lived, however, as the moderate, toffee-like bittersweet finish settles in, leaving some mild hop resins on the palate.
M: Pretty well-balanced, a little sticky sweet up front and sharp and grainy at points, but overall pretty average.
O: Not a bad American IPA at all, and certainly one with good balance. The 6% ABV makes it a good choice for a bacon-cheeseburger pairing to break up fats and add some spices to the palate. Outside of that, I probably wouldn't have more than one in a session.
Serving type: on-tap

Consumed directly from can.
A - Can't really tell from the can, but looks to be a pale yellow color.
S - Very floral and earthy, with hemp, dandelion, and a bit of tropical melon.
T - Actually less potent than the scent. First grassy, spicy, hop flavors. Then a wave of malt sweetness followed by a touch of tropical melon and citrus flavors. The finish is fairly dry and bitter.
M - A very lively carbonation lifts up a medium, semi-creamy body.
O - While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, there is also nothing at all outputting about it either. It seems content not to swing for the fences, but still succeeds overall. It is an enjoyable sumertime IPA to have while camping, fishing, or, as the name suggests, watching a baseball game.
