4.03/5 rDev -6.9%
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!

On draft @ the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA.
A: This beer pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a one finger of white head. Head recedes relatively quickly and leaves nice wisped lacing on the glass.
S: Nose is floral hops, pepper, a touch of pine and a nice solid bready, malt backbone.
T: Taste starts with a nice peppery, floral note before a nice balanced bready, malt fills through the middle with hints of grapefruit. Finish has an underlaying grapefruit flavoring that compliments a strong pine presence.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, oily feel with a rather dry finish.
O: Goes down easily, tasty, not too filling, mild kick, nice representation of style. I haven't had an IPA with much floral notes lately, so this was a nice change of pace and very nicely done.

4/5 rDev -7.6%
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.
