Had this beer at the release party for the series. Poured from bottle into a sample glass.

Dark brown body. Great citrus smell. Its like a double boston lager in alot of ways. This is a great beer. If you are a fan of Boston lager then you will be a fan of this. Great offering. I think its what beer geeks in New England was looking for. I would have this again.

A- Dark red ale poured into a pint glass. Massive off-white head forms and has great retention, nice creamy texture. Tons of lace down the glass. These new bombers are bringing the appearance.

S- Really not picking up much in the way of hops. I get a deep caramel malt and an apple-like fruit sweetness in the nose. Slight alcohol hint.

T- More in the way of hops but not the typical ones in IIPAs of today. The big caramel and apple-fruit sweetness is still there as well as some yeast bread and spice. Hops are fairly big but they are Euro style grassy, spicy and herbal/floral.

MF- Creamy moderately thick body with nice carbonation. Finishes sweet and bitter.

Not your typical IIPA but not bad either. I'm not a huge fan of the hop profile but I see what they're aiming at.

Served chilled in a traditional pint glass.

Poured a medium/medium dark amber color that was very transparent with no sediment. Had an off white frothy head that left an inconsistent layer of lace. First smells are of floral and hop. It is has a good but not robust hop taste with a touch of maltiness. The taste fleets quick and I feel it is lacking a hobiness bite, especially for an 8% abv beer. It doesn't have any trace of booziness which is a definte plus. It starts out strong but plateaus quickly. Missing something. Definitely enjoyable though.
