In an oversized wine glass...
Brilliant red amber color with a medium head that dissipates after a minute or two.
Citrus and lots of mal. There's a tinge of wholesome sweet biscuit as well.
Taste is very malty, and pretty hoppy. I taste a big fat biscuit in here. Finish is bitter and a bit sour.
Feels grainy and bitter with nice medium carbonation.
Drinkability is nice. There's nothing in this beer to suggest that I would have difficulty throwing back another of these. I won't hesitate to try other offerings from this fine brewing company.

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.
