Bottled in October 2013. Poured into a pint glass. The color is hazy straw, with a large long lasting foamy head. This looks good.

The aroma has some mild pine notes; not overly strong.

The taste starts out very dry with minimal malt influence. The finish is crisp and bitter, with a nice piney hop finish with just a touch of herbal flowery notes.

This is light bodied with a great balance for a hop forward IPA. Very enjoyable and highly drinkable. Try it!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Can poured into a 12oz glass

Hazy yellow, some carbonation, dense, fluffy, one finger white foam cap

Aroma of citrus and pine hops

Bitter notes on the first sip on the front of the tongue. Bitter again, second sip. I am nog getting the flavor notes. Sharp aftertaste that quickly fades. Good sudsing.

Very bitter beer, not getting the flavor notes

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.

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.
