6-pack from Julios. Pours out a hazy medium amber color. Big frothy head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Flavor is super hoppy. Layers of grapefruit and burnt rubber, with just enough sweetness. Lingering bitter grapefruit finish. Nice to see a Mass. brewer finally making an IPA worthy of this discussion! I've also had this on draft at Sunset Grill. good to see it being distributed.

Green Head pours a hazy amber color with a big, frothy head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving behind a coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma has subtle notes of pine and orange citrus. Some tropical fruit and caramel malt is also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is creamy with mild carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced between orange citrus, pine and caramel malt. In the background there's some biscuit and a touch of tropical fruit. It finishes moderately bitter with lingering citrus flavors.

This is a well balanced beer that's very easy to drink. Could use a bit more hop aroma and flavor for my taste.

A- Deep orange apricot. Normal to slightly more than normal head.

S- Mostly citrusy hops with a tiny bit of piney hop punching through. Pretty well balanced

T- 10 minutes out of the fridge it's a good mix of fruity and piney hops that are draped over a medium malt body. Excellent balancing bitterness that dares you to take another sip. Very difficult to actually break down the individual flavors because everything is so well blended. Definitely fruity and flavorful!

M- Medium carbonation, medium body. As to be expected from New England IPAs

O- I was really pleasantly surprised by this one. I see so many new MA breweries now that are just kind of whatever. IPA is an easy style to brew and everybody and their mom makes an IPA these days, so it's refreshing when I find a brewery that makes something a notch above the rest. Absolutely worth picking up a 6pk to try out!
