12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, thick orange and with a big, pillowy white head that sticks around for a long time. Leaves a tons of sticky lacing down the side of the glass. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Pine, apricot, citrus, a little tiny bit of clove, and some lemon are all present.

Taste: This is a tasty, citrusy, hoppy IPA. It's approachable and drinkable and packs a ton of flavor.

Mouthfeel: Very easy on the palate for an IPA. Not so easy that it's boring - there's plenty to keep you interested - but it's very easy drinking for a beer with this hop profile.

Overall: Very nice IPA from those central Massholes. It's not quite as good as their Larry, but it's a damned worthy IPA.

This IPA is a heavily clouded amber-orange, translucent leaning opaque with continuous soft bubbling activity. The head is a yellow-tinted wall of foam, starting at 2 fingers and remaining a more drinkable 1 1/2 for most of the session. The lowest it goes is half a finger, and strong, leaving chunky foam in plenty.
The smell is followed accurately by the taste, the main exception being that it develops a cheddary sort of note with time. Otherwise it's got some pith and pine resin, earth, some fruits and herb, going a little too astringent in the buildup. Still, it's a good and hoppy IPA that just needs to be cleaned up.
Crispness is up front in a medium body that has a flash of something a bit sharp and goes herbal-dry into the finish, which also takes a little off the body.

Good IPA. Have not had in quite some time. Irony is they are in my back yard, so to speak. Nothing overwhelming, but not bad. Smooth start and smooth finish, with a nice IPA flavor. Hops don't kick you in the face, nor do they kick you in the ass. It is a solid brew to drink. In fact, you could drink a couple three of these and not feel like you have been roofed.
