A: poured from the squealer to the Ghandi-bot tulip, the head kinda fluffs up to a finger and then died quickly to a 2 mm collar and a wispy white disk. No legs on swirl and a gold glowing translucent body.

S: Orangy/citrus/lemony notes backed with pleasant light malt and a hint of new-school-hops like mosaic, with that cumin/onion/garlic but very, very slight. Not overpowering in the least.

T: US-Tropical citrus, with a hint of childrens' aspirin backed with a very slight malt presence and a very citrusy, lemony hit. Light and delicate.

M: light/creamy up front followed by the lightest, most delicate and impossibly dry finish I have ever experienced. It is a velvety smooth swallow with a very slight lemony note.

O: Awesome and definitely a well crafted IPA. Try it for sure if you can.

Serving type: growler

Sadly, New England Brewing doesn't distribute to MA anymore, I always enjoyed this OG canned IPA. Picked up a 6-pack while in Hartford this past weekend for a revisit.

Appearance - Hazy rusty orange color, soapy white head. Retains as a thick ring and patchy cap, no lace.

Smell - Orange, grapefruit and floral hop aromas dominate with some piny dank there as well. With warmth, some icing sugar there for malt, but mostly bout dem hops.

Taste - Oranges, grapefruit, piny, earthy, floral, bit o' dank for hops. Icing sugar and biscuity malts.

Mouthfeel - Good full body, nice swishy carbonation, fair amount of bitterness but pretty crushable nonetheless.

Overall - This one falls under the radar, still holds up nicely with today's IPA standards. Solid all around, good price for a 6-pack (paid $9.50). Will have to pick up more of this when in CT.

Served from can into a highball glass (I had it at a hotel...)

A - Pale yellow body with notable haza. A fizzy off-white head forms on top and dissipates quickly.

S - Very floral and grassy. I pick up dandelion and slight tangerine.

T - Similar to the flowery nose, but a bit more orange and lemon flavors pop up. The malt has some cracker characteristics with a hint of sweetness. Otherwise a fairly dry-tasting IPA. A semi-bitter finish.

M - Light to medium body with a somewhat dry mouthfeel. The carbonation is middle of the road, which fits the style.

O - A good, but not great, IPA. The floral nature of the hops is refreshing, but doesn't really invite you back for another sip all that much. But worth a try, for sure!
