look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #60 (Jan 2012):

LOOK: Brilliant pale gold color

SMELL: Toasted orange peel, mint, evergreen, ripe pears, figs, hemp seeds, white peppercorn, caramel, cake batter

TASTE: Think resin, floral, herbal, oily, fresh tobacco, citric rind, fresh mint, guava, very bitter, passionfruit, dates, dry finish

This is a sleeper IPA, waiting patiently for more people to try it. Despite the gripes of West Coast naysayers, it appears East Coast brewers can indeed brew hoppy beers of epic proportions. It certainly sent our palates for a ride and fed our hop addiction. A must-try for hopheads.

4.56/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Served from 16 oz. can

A - From what I could tell, a nice hazy straw color.

S - Zesty hop aromas, including orchid, lemon, tangerine, and wildflower honey.

T - Exceptionally floral with a strong citrus presence as well. Notes of lemongrass, too. The malt has a vibrant honey biscuit flavor to it. The aftertaste has a touch of bitterness to accompany the lingering flowery taste.

M - Medium bodied and refreshing.

O - A great IPA - certainly a New England standout. The moderate ABV makes it an ideal summertime sipper.
