Had this on tap at BBC in Franklin, MA as an opening day promo for the Red Sox. Beers pours a bronze amber with about a finger of fluffy off-white head. Moderate retention and lacing.

Smell is hoppy, but muted. Mostly centennial hops. It's not a hop bomb and it doesn't smell like one. An inviting aroma.

Taste was slightly underwhelming. It's hoppy, but not overly citrusy, piney or bitter. A touch of malty sweetness was present. All in all, the flavor was nice, but just not pronounced enough for my taste and somewhat of a lingering bitter after taste.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied, a touch oily but otherwise, it was a nice, middle of the road drinakble IPA. Pretty good if you're in the mood for a decent beer watching a ballgame, but not much more.

This beer pours a dark amber, orange in color, slightly cloudy. There is an inch of off-white thick, creamy and foamy head.

The aroma is floral, herbal, grassy and crusty bread.

The taste is richly fruity, creamy tropical fruits and melons, along with floral, more so than citrusy. All of the fruit is on a discernible, but not overbearing crusty bread maltiness.

This is really delicious. Creamy and round, with a pleasing bitterness.

Thanks to TheManiacalOne for this beer.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip. Pours a clear reddish orange, with a one inch sticky white head, plenty of lacing. Smell is tangerine, grapefruit, pine, and grass. Taste is citrus and pine up front, with grapefruit in the finish. Body is medium for the size, plenty of life, more lush than dry, and very drinkable. This is nice IPA, I love the new beers arriving in N.H all the time.

Hazy golden orange colored body; big, fluffy off-white head, excellent retention and lace. Appearance is solid. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and grapefruit hops, spices, and pine.

A bit on the sweet side, again with citrusy, grapefruit forward hop flavors, some pine, general fruitiness. Light herbal and spice flavors. Malt character is mostly caramel and fairly generic, doesn’t detract from the centennial and cascade hop notes or make much of an impression at all. Bitterness is pretty moderate for a contemporary AIPA.

Carbonation is medium to high, body slightly on the thinner side. Semi-dry finish. Easy drinking. Overall a decent IPA but not a standout in a crowded field.

This beer when poured into a pint glass, it has a dark gold color body with a nice 2"of white head, that doesn't stay around long,but goes to a nice thin lace. The smell is of earthy hops. The hops hits your taste buds pretty strong, then a little bit of malt comes on the back of the tongue. The hops have a bitter finish. Great mouth feel, easy drinking ipa.
