22oz. brown bottle. Bottled on date Nov. 2011
Served in a SA perfect pint glass.
Pours a hazy gold color with a full 2" white head and lots of webby and trailing lacing.
The smells are surprisingly mild considering the name. There are plenty of Pale Ales with more hop-forward noses. That said, the citrusy, floral and resinous hop smell is very pleasant. A faint peppery spice is noticed as is a bit of an alcoholic fuminess.
The flavors are where this IPA shines best. Juicy grapefruit, lemon zest, tart orange and spices explode in the mouth with a West Coast-like abandon, yet there's a subtly sweet caramel malt
and very light Graham Cracker-like breadiness that tempers the hop bite in a very pleasing way. A little alcoholic heat warms the back of the throat and can be noticed on the breath rather quickly.
Although this is an edgy and hoppy IPA, it's a fairly fluid and wet brew that invites a few large gulps.
Tasty, drinkable IPA...nice!

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.
