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
