$5.75 @ Union Brewhouse, Weymouth
Dark, very cloudy straw color. Thick, creamy head, looks like a rocky nitro pour. Hearty lace ladder for a little man to climb out of my beer if he wanted to. If he was in there. Poor little fella.
Smells really, really, really fresh. General hop smell, like when I sniff a fresh bag of hops. Definately has a wet grass citrus lean but I'm really just floored by how fresh this smells. Some bready cracker malt underneath.
Doesn't taste as potent as it smells but doesn't lag too far behind either. Wet grass grapefruit hops over a fairly dry cracker malt. Lots of resin in the mouthfeel which I love.
I wasn't expecting it to be this good when I ordered it.

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.
