Had at Prime 16 on Friday August 14th. Really great double IPA from connecticut. Tons of hops in the aroma and flavor with a decent malt bill, too. It errs more on the side of a balanced DIPA. My only gripe is that it is a bit too heavy in the body. Worth a try!

Really good IPA offering from Firefly. The first beer I've had from this brewery that made me a believer in their process. Citrus juiciness up front and hop bitterness to finish each swallow. While I wouldn't normally go out of my way for a Firefly beer, this is one you should definitely check out if your local watering hole has it on tap.

Don't like the bitterness on this DIPA, too complex for my palate to appreciate. Earthly rustic, & piney, & citrus.... starts out great finishes as a flat tire in the middle of the woods

Made the trip to the brewery this weekend. I'd heard a lot of great things about this one and was very excited to try it.

It certainly looked delicious. It had a gorgeous, clean, copper color and a thin, white head. It smelled great too. There were strong aromas of pine and floral hops, with notes of citrus fruit. But the taste was downright foul. A tremendous hop bite followed by flavors of dirt, sawdust, and rust. You could have told me the batch was contaminated with a wheelbarrow full of mud from a nearby construction site and I would have believed it.

After all the positive reviews I'd gotten from people I was incredibly disappointed. I have to add this to the short list of beers that I outright could not finish.

On tap at the Lucky Taco. Was excited to try this again after getting a mislabeled pour at a different pub few months back.

This is a great tasting double IPA. Great balance of strong hop bitterness and big flavor. Highly recommended to fans of other CT DIPA's like Ghandi-Bot or Palate Mallet.

This tastes exactly like grapefruit sculpin without the really good fruit loop aftertaste
