Got this one on tap at where else but Fenway Park. 

A: light amber color. Nice foamy head that quickly went down, but retained its lacing all the way to the end of the beer

S: alot of floral hops to this one. Really sweet and pleasant. 

T: on the front end really sweet...really get a full blast of the floral hops. Not as much in terms of bitterness on the back end. A bit, but not as bitter as it coulda been. 

M:  medium body. Light enough to be perfect for a summer night at the ball game. 

O: pretty refreshing beer. The floral smell and taste are really nice but it could be a bit stronger with the buttering hops. But still wicked refreshing. Would limit to 1-2 for a session though.

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.

3.58/5  rDev +0.3%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy amber color. There is a small white head which fades to a cap of bubbles.

S: Fairly hoppy. Grassy herbal notes and some pine. There are also some light fruit flavors, grapefruit and citrus. Faint biscuity malt in the background.

T: Bitter hops provide most of the flavor. Pine and grass cuttings are prominent. There is some alcohol heat which complements these flavors. Not as fruity as the aroma at all, but maltier. Some caramel, toasted malt and bread balance the heat from the alcohol and hops.

M: Relatively thin with mild but effervescent carbonation.

O: A decent IPA but not really memorable. Bitter but not overwhelming hops dominate the experience. The lingering bitterness reduces drinkability so I wouldn't want to be drinking this all night.
