4.55/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden color, very hazy but no visible particles. Nice fluffy white head.

Aroma is a burst of bright, juicy citrus scents with hints of tropical fruit like pineapple and mango. Really saturated with delicious smells of fruit.

The first sip brings an incredible punch of tropical and citrus flavors, like pineapple and grapefruit mixed together. Some of the hop bitterness starts to get in the way though, giving the taste a sharp bitter edge that masks those amazing tastes. But still the beer is very solid with every sip filled with tropical/ctirus fruit.

The stiff hop bitterness overpowers at first but fades with the aftertaste leavying a medium body smacking of fruit sweetness and a clean, dry yet fruity aftertaste.

Really blown away by this beer, one of the best IPAs I've had, ever. Dial the hop bitterness back but keep the late hop additions and you could give Heady Topper a run for its money!

4.56/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

Serving type: can
