Pours a three finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Murky pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Grapefruit hop nose and flavor is an excellent balance of caramel and grapefruit hops, lingering hop aftertaste. $4.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma. Bottled 10/8/15.

I enjoyed this beer at the Port Tavern not far from the brewery. Deep golden color. Spicy nose of rye and hops. Flavor follows nose, with strong malt backbone tempered by bitterness. Body is great, coating the palate and leaving a great finish. Overall I'm a sucker for rye IPAs, and this one is up there.

Growler from Andover Liquors.
Deep golden color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates quickly. Spicy earthy pine with just a hint of citrus on the nose. The flavor continues the spice but adds a bit of earthy rustic raw hop notes that clashes a bit. Bready caramel maltiness brings up the rear but is enough to provide a bit of balance. Alcohol is a bit too present for my tastes. Decent brew but the recipe or process needs just a little tweaking.
