Apperance: the head on this beer is something to write a song about. Rocky, foamy, and everything else you love about big head. Lacing is great as well. Honey and apricot in color. Slight haze.
Nose: A dry leafy nose comes to mind. It smells a lot like tea. Hops and sweet malt.
Taste: Again, a dry eucaliptus taste. Like dry leaves. It is very interesting and tastes great. Dry at first then becomes sweeter. tea, honey, malt.
Notes: Very well balanced. This is one of the better IPA's i have had because it is not west coast extreme bitter. It is nice to have a very balanced IPA with malt and sweet tastes to it. i was very impressed.
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: on-tap

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
