3.43/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice amber colored beer with a very good head. The head laced down the entire glass.

Herbal aroma, with an earthy organic nose.

Not super hoppy, but a nicely bittered beer. Earthy tasting.

Light to medium bodied, highly drinkable. Very well balanced malt and hop profile.

This beer is okay, nothing exceptional to write home about it. I did enjoy it, but for this style, there are so many IPA's out there that it really needs to be an exceptional beer to make any impact for me.

4.09/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

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.
