Dark gold in color, tight white head forms on top a good two fingers worth. Slowly the head faded with a thin lace ring on the top, each sip left its mark on my glass. Citrus on the nose all the way. Hint of malt up front on the taste with a total hop takeover.

Overall a solid brew.

Saw this new beer on the shelves at Big Gary's in Putnam, CT and decided to give this canned offering a try.

Poured from the can revealed a dark gold, almost bronze in color and a off white head which left beautiful lacing down the side of the glass.

The nose picked up wonderful notes of citrus and pine, sticky hop essence came through quite clearly. Reminds me of the dank IPA's i've had in the past. Few more dark hop notes, rather than the lighter variety.

Taste - I didn't know what to expect so I left that up to the senses. I was pleasantly surprised that this CT brewed IPA did me proud to be CT born and raised. Citrus notes up front and plenty of hop bitterness to balance out the sweet malts. Lingering finish that had a welcomed flavor that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Nice little kick on the end that makes this IPA stand out from the rest. Keeps me coming back for more.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, plenty of carbonation for the style. Almost chewy but not quite.

Overall - I was very pleased with this IPA. In the vast ocean of IPA's, this one stands out from the rest with his unique flavors in the finish. I'm glad I picked this up and I will be returning to it till the fall brews make their way here. I can't wait to see what else they offer.

Trying another local in-state brewery for the first time. These 16 oz cans of 'Hopstillo' from Broad Brook Brewing, across the Connecticut River in East Windsor, were a new find for me. And I have to say it was a delightful find.

When you pull the tab to open the can, there is an immediate smell of fruit and piney woods. On the pour, there was a nice long-lasting head topping an amber colored brew. This is definitely a West Coast style IPA that has a strong citrus and pine taste on the first sip. 6.8% ABV but very smooth. The 82 IBUs registers as you swallow, but it still has a clean finish.

I found this beer to be one of the better IPAs I have had from this state, truly deeelicious!
