Lot07/21/11 Which I assume means this is 10 days old. Awesome!!! I(sure tastes that way)
Well the first comment is that the head of this beer is like a whipped meringue topping. It just sits atop the beer as you drink around it. The color of the beer is a rust/amber color with some deep orange tones. Lacing clings heavily inside the glass. It’s so thick it slowly drifts down the glass.
Aroma is bright and fresh with a huge floral/grapefruit note. Very nice.
Wow, this is a special IPA. Fresh, bright, balanced (towards the fruity HOP side!) Great light, crisp cracker malt notes. Wonderful bright grapefruit notes. Some other nice fruit notes including a moment of nectarine. The finish is fantastic and leaves you wanting more.
Very refreshing, fresh and bright. Fairly light body, but still enough substance for the flavor. Matches perfectly.
This is a beer that confirms why I enjoy standard IPA’s more than DPA’s. You’d never know this was 7%... Fantastic Beer!!!! Hopefully this will become a standard beer in MA distribution. I had to fight to get these bottles.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Bottled on 28-Jan-2014.
Hazy golden orange. Or as my wife puts it, "dehydrated pee." Nice silky-looking head with minuscule bubbles. Definitely unfiltered (as if they were lying). Head lasts as a film on the top of the beer until the last drop.
Spicy hops. Malty sweetness. Pineapple? Citrus! No alcohol. Low esters. Non-phenolic, although some spicy phenols may be melding with the spiciness of the hops.
This beer is just the right mix of hop bitterness, dank hoppy flavor and malt. Nothing seems out of balance. Nothing even peeks its head out more at one point before or after another flavor. Smooth as glass, tasty as a mofo. My glass doesn't spend much time on the coaster.
Medium bodied, how I like my ladies. Silky, how I like their undergarments.
What needs to be said? For some beers that have garnered a strong following there's no question as to why. The balance here is incredible. The flavors are just perfect and the contributions the hops, malts and yeast make come together for a wonderful experience. If you haven't had this beer, seek it out.
