Had at Confetti restaurant in Plainville CT, Must have been on tap as I don't think they bottle. Have to say that for the first time I have tried this brewer, I was not impressed. Beer looked fine in the glass but had an off smell. The taste was bitter but not a good hoppy bitter. I may try again when I get back to CT as it may have been a bad keg or the restaurant mid-handled it.

On tap at Firefly Hollow. Pours an orangey brown with a half inch of head. Some lacing. The aroma is spicy and herbal hops with some mango and guava. Hints of pepper. Taste is more of the same. Mango, guava, black pepper and lots of spicy and herbal hops. A bit piney with a fair amount of malts. Finishes with some more of the pepper and some tropical fruits. Very spicy and herbal. Good amount of bitterness. Although it is 7.7% it actually tastes a bit boozier. Dry mouthfeel. Overall, although the abv is on the lowside for an DIPA this certainly drinks like an Imperial. Unique brew with a mix of a lot of different hop flavors to it.

A friend brought me a growler direct from the Bristol brewery. Pours hazy with a copper color and little carbonation (could be from sitting in the growler for a day). Man this is bitter, just the way I like it. Nice mouth feel, bitterness is up front with sweetness at the back end. Good up front citrus notes. If you can get to the brewery or have a friend get you a growler, it's worth it.
