New offering from yet another new local brewer. No biggie- if you have some brewing talent, keep 'em coming, New Englanders!
Great look to this brew. Exactly how I like to see my DIPAs- orangy-yellow, hazy, with a touch of a regenerating head. Roughly the color of hop pollen, which is perfection.
The aroma is a bit muted, but nicely fruity and clean.
The taste is quite clean and bitter. This is a really nice, dry, hoppy brew. It's going to take me two or three or these to really tease out all of the flavors. Grapefruit is dominant, and with little malty sweetness to ease the grapefruit bitterness up, it's a little harsh but still quite enjoyable.
Mouthfeel is really the only mild failing with this brew. It's pretty thin and lacks the depth you might expect from a brew that looks so dense and hazy. The bitter film left on my tongue after every sip is nice, however.
This brew is certainly worth seeking out. It's certainly a specialist, and as I belch up hop rhizomes, you can guess what the specialty is. A little sweetness and body and we'd have an all-around world-class brew here.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.
A: pours a nice hazy orange amber with a little less then two fingers of slightly amber ish head that has excellent retention, small carbonation bubbles can be seen working there way up the sides of the glass, nice lacing.... Good looking brew.
S: nice cirtusy hops right up front, grapefruit with a touch of pinneapple/mango.... Some nice lightly resinous pine notes in there as well.
T: much like the nose, citrus hops up front that get a bit piney and resinous on the finish, a touch of caramel in there as well, just enough to tie the whole thing together, very well balanced with delicious hop flavor.
M: nice medium body with a slightly creamy carbonation, and it is dry.... Not to sweet like some dipa tend to be.... This one is very nicley on the dry side. A lightly bitter finish with a touch of mouth coating resin...
O: this is an excellent ipa, dry bodied with pleanty of delicious hop flavor... I was very impressed with this one, keep em coming brew master jack.... For your first ipa you did a damn good job.
