Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours medium dark amber with 1/2 inch white fluffy foam. Will lace a lot. Bready malt nose. Some bitter scent as well. Light caramel. Taste is full malty with a light bitter at the close. Some pine but buried below, Light on bitter, high on malt. Good blend.
Clearly I like this better than others on the site,

David really are diversified. It's like being in Massachusetts and knowing that you're going to know all types of people. But you don't really don't know who they're from Japan or Thailand or Korea. It's a normal typical ,very plain IPA but it's tasty to the top nice mouth feel nice love.
Thor probably wouldn't smash the glass and scream I'll try another. He probably say what else do you have an IPAs. And gentle hand the glass back to the waiter/ bartender
Definitely worth a try though

A- Rust color orange, cloudy. It has a nice creamy looking head. Looks are appealing.
S- Floral hops with a slight citrus accent in the background. Scent is equally as malty. Touch of breadiness. Slight toffee notes. Nice change of pace for an East Coast style IPA, but mostly a familiar smelling IPA.
T- The initial sip is of a citrus type juice (maybe grapefruit and orange mix), but finishes all florally. The malty taste is great. It really rounds out the hop flavor nicely. Not bready like in the aroma. Drying in the finish. Almost makes this feel ever so slightly chewy. It just dries out the back of the throat. Interesting, but not in a bad way. Just a good example of an East Coast style IPA here. No complaints.
M- Carbonation makes this taste crisp for sure! First sip is slightly watery with that juicy quality, but ends up with a medium mouthfeel overall. Not real heavy at all, but sitts a little too heavy to be quaffable.
*Overall this is a great example of an East Coast IPA. There isn't a dominating floral taste, but true to an East Coast IPA, it's certainty there. I'm starting to think Connecticut has some real nice craft beers and IPAs in general. I need to try/review more from the state.

A pale brown color with almost no sign of head, just a vague white ring, and minimal lacing. Almost no sign of bubbles here. The aroma suggests an anemic burnt caramel and peanut cracker. Weird and certainly far from any expectation for an IPA. The taste buds meet more of the same, mellow nutty malt with a mild leafy hop kiss. Sort of a limp caramel tea idea. Not real loveable for me and for an IPA the hops are just not prominent enough, or very tasty, and offer very little aromatic value. The body is about medium but the carbonation is lacking with a bit of a dull, limp feel. Not too exciting. I don't see this being a very successful endeavor and I will not revisit.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Born on Date – 09/05/12. Poured into glass with a minimal head and a hazy light amber color. I heard this one was different from the 860, but it was tough for me to tell the difference. It may have a bit more grapefruit to it than the 203, but it still is quite earthy and balanced. The profile is a little thin for the style.
