A: Hazy orange like copper color. Foamy white head.
S: Notes of floral aromas, some piney hop notes, a hint of malty sweetness combined with citrusy notes.
T: Tastes similar to the nose. Has a nice balance between malty sweetness with citrusy/piney hops. Has a nice dry/slight bitter finish.
M: Medium carbonation, dry finish, well balanced beer.
O: An excellent IPA option and for the price it's a steal!

This is my go to IPA in CT. I truly feel it beats the rest in the state. It's usually widely accessible and tastes even better on draft. And i'm disappointed when I can't find it.

I live in CT, so this always gets to me really fresh. An easy-drinking IPA. I think the thing that distinguishes Sea Hag is the wicked strong pine in the nose. Good session beer.

Not a fan of this IPA at all. Too may hops and way too bitter.

Very hoppy, plenty of bitterness for an ipa fan. Floral scent and hint of orange taste. Very drinkable and no slouch at over 6%. Another strong beer in the New England lineup

This is an amazing IPA that seemed to have gone through a recent transition. from good to GREAT. It's fairly easy to get it super fresh in CT. Gandhi-Bot light? maybe!

Nice appearance with a white frothy head not too much lacing.
Smells floral and piney.
Nice taste with a little bit of bite on the finish.
Very drinkable and could easily drink a few of these in a sitting.

Mostly just bitter. Very little else. Perhaps it is a bit beyond its prime.

Very solid and quaffable IPA. While brewed on the east coast, seems to have more of a west coast hop profile (a plus in my book).

Easy drinking with a great hop profile, the word crushable comes to mind.

Hoppy but not as smooth as I would like. But a great choice when it's on tap.

Sea Hag is one of those ipa's you either love or don't. Not bad overall. I can easily see why it would be a nice goto when available. But for me, I'm glad I got a can to try but I'll pass on it next time.

I picked up a six pack of this on a whim and I wish I grabbed more!
A: Hazy orange like copper color. Foamy white head.

A- pours a hazy, amber color with some cloudiness. Off-white head that wastes little time disappearing. Good lace
S- orange, grapefruit, lemon, some grassiness.
T- same citrus notes from the nose with some bready, cracker-like maltiness making it's presence known. Piney slickness as it goes down.
M- light crisp but still manages to coat the palate with a velvet-like sheen.
O- nice, easy-drinking IPA.

Ahh...not quite sure how "New England Brewing Co." makes any sense, whereas you cannot even get this beer in Mass. But I digress, a fine brew....
