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 maltiest 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 I like this better.
Second try confirms. Hops could be more noteworthy, but the malt really shines through here. Lack of aroma keeps this from being 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.
