Notes/Commercial Description:
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Rhode Island

4.69/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Served from a pint can into a Woodcock Brothers pint glass.

Appearance- hazy orange/amber with half finger of off-white head that left some nice lacing.

Smell- Grassy/piney hops, citrus (tangerine, lemons, orange), peaches. Real nice hop aromas. Not much of a malt background, but I'm fine with that.

Taste- Piney/grassy hops, light tangerine and peaches, light maltyness, nice piney bitterness. Really well balanced and super earthy.

Mouthfeel- Medium-well carbonation, medium body with decent viscosity, very easy to drink. Very refreshing.

Overall- Can't thank Beerandboards for this treat! This is so good!

This beer totally surprised me, and I was expecting good. I'm not exactly sure how fresh the cans were, but they were fresh enough. I'd safely call this Heady-lite. As close as I've had in a while with just a little less of a great finish. (which the finish could have been freshness related).

I recommend this beer a lot in my very informal review, cheers. Will be seeking more out.
