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.

Went to the Brewery a while ago and was just looking for a small growler for the night. I was extremely surprised when I was given the sample by the aroma of up-front tropical fruits paired with notes of pine.
The taste was on par with the aroma and really was a fruity IIPA. I got fruits such as grapefruit, mango, peach and pineapple.
The mouth feel was great, carbonation was on point and it lingered for the perfect amount of time wanting you to take another drink.
Overall this was a VERY solid DANK local IPA for drinkers in CT and would love to see them make more of this because it really is great.

When I visited the brewery they did not have this one available. I was at Westbrook Lobster in Wallingford and to my surprise, they had it on tap. This one had the hops bite (bitterness) I love. I tried it 2 times, a week apart, as I tend to get wrapped up in the moment. liked it more the second time.

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.
