To start off I'm completely confused by this "brewery" that makes it's beers at Paper City in Holyoke but I digress-
This was just an average hop bomb, it was kind of fun to drink, perhaps some wild yeast thing, Bret?, going on in the background but there was no balance. Nothing made me say wow that is one interesting beer. It drank fine, it was mildly refreshing but over all meh. I know that this American hop slam thing is all the rage but this seemed to be hoppy just to cover up its brewing flaws.

On tap at the brew pub.
Comes to the table a clear light gold color with a decent sized off white head. Smells of resinous pine and bits of citric fruit. Very light bready malt almost pokes through. The flavor is spicy resinous dank hop with a huge pithy grapefruit bite. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sharp resinous bitter mouthfeel. Decent beer, but the hops come off a bit harsh at times.

Enjoyed at High Horse in Amherst.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a hazy golden hue with a one finger head that faded to leave thin side lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light citrus, oranges, faint tropical pineapple, light grapefruit. Nice assertive orange zest, pleasant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, quite hoppy. Nice grapefruit, oranges, citrus rind, faint pith, good light pineapple, faint tropical notes, nice light malts. Good bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

M - Mouthfeel is pleasant, nice carbonation, strong bitter finish.

O - Overall this beer was very drinkable, good hop profile. Nice finish alcohol hidden well. Nice

On tap at the pub, 1/23/12

Poured into a pint glass, the dim lighting may have affected the appearance slightly. A partially hazy golden hued brew with decent head, I prefer my IPAs a bit on the hazy side so this worked well for me!

Smelled extremely floral. Very inviting aroma, but almost made me nervous that it would be an overly sweet IPA

Tasted like it smelled, but wasn't super sweet like I feared! Good floral notes, reminded me very much of a west-coast style IPA right here in my backyard.

Overall: I'll definitely be back for more. Very appealing IPA, I can't wait to try their other brews!
