4.24/5 rDev +0.2%
Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured. It is a hazy pale orange with some clarity and vision of bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Resiny pine, tangerine, grapefruit, grass, passion fruit, mango all followed by toasted and caramel malts.
Taste: Resiny pine is the most noticeable. Citrus and tropical flavors are slightly behind with the malts balancing things out. Tingly mild bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, super mild tingly bitterness, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: For a 9.2% beer, this is pretty solid. Awesome hop characteristics with malts to back it up. This log isn't going to last too long.

The beer pours a perfect copper color that you can almost see through, minimal haze.
The smell is fantastic, juniper and evergreen. Very fragrant and enjoyable.
The taste is near-prfect for me as a moderate hop-lover. Clean and dry, mildly fruity with lots of "Pine" (I think people mis-construe Pine with Juniper, so i'll say Pine but i mean Juniper).
The mouthfeel is good but as a fan of carbonation I could stand it to be a bit more bubbly.
Overall, I think this is a fantastic Extra IPA, I've had a few of their other beers and think this is the best by-far. Seems to be less available then their others but absolutely worth looking for. Cheers.
