On-tap at Prime 16 in New Haven, CT, served in a pint glass:
The beer appeared a hazy orange color with a light, white foamy head that dissipated into a small thin cap. Nothing too impressive...perhaps slightly above average. The beer gave off a hoppier aroma than was expected from an English IPA, but light citrus hops. The taste, again, was overpowered by the hops for the style. This style is typically a bit more balanced than say an American IPA. No real complexity to it, just straight citrus hops. The beer had a good feel to it and finished with a decent dry but bitter aftertaste and was easy to drink. Overall, too hoppy for the style, I expected a little more balance...but even if it was just an IPA, it is average at best.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewing live so this will be short. No big citrus or floral hop nose on this. There are hops but this has a superb malt bill. This is among the maltreat IPAs I've had and I'm loving it. No extreme bitterness, just smooth caramel malt with enough hops to balance it. An old fashioned IPA. Wife has a Stone IPA and unlike this better.

12. oz. can poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light orange. Kind of a marmalade color. Nice one-and-a-half-inch white head. Lacing minimal.
Aroma: Smells of pine, hops, malt, grapefruit, and lemon.
Taste: The taste follows the nose, and it's pretty good. It's just over the APA/IPA line, with moderate alcohol and high-but-not-super-high bitterness. Nice malty backbone.
Mouthfeel: The beer has an appealing sessionable quality - not an intimidating beer, but a complex and quaffable one.
Overall: Fun sessiony IPA from this western Mass. brewer. The term "session IPA" makes a lot of folks groan, but this is a very well executed one. A good everyday beer and a good companion for any meal.
Serving type: can
