Served in a large snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Resiny pine, citrus, tropical, floral, grassy, caramel, and some toasted malts.
Taste: Tropical, pine, and citrus with some caramel and toasted malts. Some bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, tingly bitterness, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: It's good to ser their stuff here in Massachusetts. Will be enjoying more in the near future. Pretty solid and enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

A - pours a golden brown with a finger of bubbly white head.
S - Big floral aroma, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity, hop resin, malts, crackers.
T - Aggressive hops come through, chewy and resinous, dank, grass, crackers, earthy, bread dough. Finishes dry and bitter.
O - In your face and big flavored IPA. Nice offering that lacks a bit of balance.

Bought a bomber at Fallbrook liquor and had Nessy burger while I was there.
Nice pour into a tulip. Deep foggy gold color, creamy head.
Smell is mostly bready hops, with a tiny bit of citrus.
Taste is also dominated by hops, with a nice carbonated slick mouth feel.
Overall a decent ipa especially when fresh, but many other options out there.
I feel if they held back on the bready malt a bit it would be a better pour.
