Poured at 50 degrees into a pint glass
Pours a nice brass/amber color with a nice 3 cm tan, fluffy, sticky head atop of the body. Head has nice retention. Hops aroma mainly on my nose that reminds me of some nice earthy florals along with some slight maltiness. Nothing special, but very nice aroma. Sipping reveals a slight caramel flavor up front, along with some carbonation that tingles the middle of my tongue, while behind it, the hops come into play leaving a nice biscuit and grapefruit flavor (sour)with a bit of alcohol on the finish and some bitterness at the finish. This comes in cans, and this would make a very "dangerous" night at 6.2%!!! Very drinkable, you could probably even use it for beerpong (that's for Sullydaddy!). Cheers! A nice offering from a nice brewery. Represents the style very well.

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.

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.
