Big thanks to Sean for hooking this one up at growlerfest part one. Poured into a Lost Abbey tumbler, a burnt orange, slightly hazy, with a small off white bubbly head that sits at the edge of the glass. Huge grassy hop aroma, slightly resinous with a light straw like malt, only a hint of sweet malt. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, big grassy hops, pine resin, slightly earthy, some citrus, malty bread crust, some biscuit malts, sweet finish. Medium bodied with a light carbonation. A decent DIPA, but for the most part is just seems like a doubled up version of edward, which I prefer to this one.
Serving type: growler

Had this on-tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Shaun Hill's arrogance, I have to admit this brew is pretty legit.
A: Poured a very cloudy, golden color, with a slight, 1/2 finger head.
S: Floral in spades, with that certain "Dreadnaught-esque" candy-coated alcohol that is absolutely to die for.
T: Very Dreadnaught-esque in its IPA disposition: Fresh Orange juice, grapefruit, and some caramel and butterscotch thrown into the mix.
M: Hell, what do I know here. I guess I'll add that it's lowly carbonated, non-sugary, and damn-near perfect here.
O: This lives up to its hype, for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
