Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me a fresh can of this
Appearance: Lightly hazy but mostly clear golden orange - kind of a tangerine color, with some hints of light copper - pours with a small, bright white head - sticks around and leaves some nice spots of lacing
Smell: Hoppy, it be - fresh, ripe citrus with some bright orange, tangerine, and grapefruit aromas - fleshy, juicy citrus with a hint of pith - some lightly dank pine and some light tropical notes in the back - nice malt backbone with some moderately cooked biscuits and bread
Taste: Aggressively hoppy yet very drinkable - interesting hop profile with some nicely juicy citrus and some tropical flavors - orange, tangerine, and grapefruit flesh - lightly pithy - some pine and light herbal/grassy notes in the finish - decidedly bitter and well-rounded in hop flavors - nice malt profile with some bread and a touch of light biscuits - pale malts and maybe a touch of caramel
Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, nicely carbonated, very drinkable
Overall: There are worse things to be
This is probably the best IPA I've had that was brewed in Massachusetts. And it's probably because it tastes so West Coast. It's extremely hoppy, as the name would suggest, and it has a nice profile. To an extent, it almost tastes like a DIPA. It's extremely flavorful for the low ABV - I would have guessed higher. If I ever see this in MA, I'll be buying more.

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.
