I tried this beer on draft at a bar in the summer BEFORE knowing any of the hype... and my eyes went wide after the first sip.

Every sip after that, I kept exclaiming to people at the table how good this beer was. For me, it was the kind of beer I've always been looking for. I'm really into IPAs, but I too often feel like they go overboard with the hops, rendering the beer skunky and hard to drink. This beer on the other hand had the perfect level of flavor, but was also extremely drinkable and refreshing. Medium bodied, crisp, and the aftertaste was just pure joy. Had a very very slight hint of grapefruit which made it great for warm weather.

Probably my all time favorite beer, and again, I decided that after the first sip BEFORE even having a clue about the hype.

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tropical, lemony, grassy, citrus, herbal, and spicy hop aroma followed by pale, caramel, bready, and toasted malts.

Taste: Awesome hop flavor and balanced malts in the rear. Super light tingly bitterness too.

Mouthfeel: Really smooth, light tingly bitterness, very refreshing, tasty, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: As good as it gets from the East Coast and readily available. Each year it becomes easier to find and in my personal opinion still maintains its qualities that w ed we all look for. I always look forward to having this beer again.
