Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Pours a dark copper, Almost amber color with a one finger head. It leaves piles upon piles of lacing throughout the glass. Smells strongly of grapefruit with a wee bit of pine and some maltiness coming through. Although my explanation cannot do it justice. This beer smells delicious. The taste is that of the sweetest IPA that I have ever experienced. Grapefruit, Lemon, very mild hops, and a mild maltiness. You just have to try it for yourself. The mouthfeel allows some more hops to come through, And some more malt, Although it retains the mentioned flavors. Over all, a great beer for those who want to step into craft beers, and beer snobs alike. A masterpiece in my opinion, Almost THE perfect beer.

This is right up there as one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Just so fresh and delicious. Thanks to Frozensoul327 for picking out a lesser known brewery for me to try. Wow !!

The balance and complexity of this beer are what make it really stand out. This IPA has a stack of flavor. Beautiful maltiness with a strong hop presence both in the nose and on the tongue. There is definitely a beautiful blend of different hops in here and they are so balanced out with the malt, it is almost perfect. I bet its even better on-tap. Can we please get this shit distributed to MA ??Immediately !!!!

Great head on this one. Staying power and lacing is long lasting. Be careful on first pour. Go too fast and your beer looks more like a rootbeer float. Hops taste is not overpowering with it's nutty flavor. Aftertaste stays with you encouraging another drink or even another bottle.Color has a great cloudy appearance that is dark and golden. Looks as good as it tastes. I could easily make a short night of these beauties.

Bronze, deep copper color with alots of suspended sediment, a full beige head, decent carbonation, and sheets of lace. Very nice citrusy grapefruit hop aroma. Good malt balance for the huge hop rate; nicely balanced !! Medium-full bodied and creamy with a finish that is not too bitter.

Wish I had more than one of these - an IPA to drink all day !!

per N.H.B.Co. website: Munich, Caramunich, and Carapils Malts. Nugget and Centennial hops. O.G. 1065. IBU 52.9 !!
