3.99/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pour is a hazy gold orange with a 1/4 finger of dense white head, with nice lacing.

Nose is a little damp, with soft, sticky pine and just a hint of citrus

Taste is pretty malty up front for an IPA, but not in a bad way. Some nice milky caramel notes, followed by wet, softly biting hops. Creates a really nice balance overall. More West Coast IPA style overall with the hops.

Feel is medium bodied, but on the thicker side.

Great local beer. Not the best IPA out there, but thoroughly drinkable, and readily available. Can never go wrong with a Sea Hag.

Serving type: can

3.85/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!

4.05/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours a hazy golden orange into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Creamy head recedes rather more quickly than I expected and forms a thin film up top. Spotty lacing. Lots of rapidly-streaming visible carbonation.

S - Absolute dynamite and clearly what turned out to be my favorite part of the beer. Great hop intensity. Floral/Tropical aromas with a bit of sweetness.

T - Follows the nose, although the sweetness is a bit more pronounced here. Something like candy. The hops are still dominant. A fairly firm bitterness comes in on the back end.

M - The one major weak spot for me. I love a good medium+ bodied IPA. It would be a stretch to call this light/medium. It is very thin and even a little slick. Finishes clean and slightly dry.

O - Nice beer, if difficult to rank across the various categories. If I had regular access to this I would buy it, but not terribly frequently.
