Got this one from a friend during his recent visit from Boston. Really looking forward to it after digging another New England IPA from a can - Heady Topper.

Poured into a Cigar City tulip glass. Hazy reddish-orange appearance with a couple of fingers of frothy white head, which reduced quickly to a thin ring. Left lots of chunky lacing on the glass. Smell was a little muted initially, but as time went by it really opened up. Smelled of fresh bamboo with spicy notes of hops. Not really citrusy at all by my estimation. I was a little disappointed that it didn't hit me in the face more (I guess I expect that from DIPAs) but it's still a pleasant smell. Tasted very bitter; lots of hoppiness, and an earthy quality to it. I totally dug the flavor, although the mouth feel was a total disappointment. It was basically flat. I feel like the zip of carbonation would really enhance the flavor.

Overall, the qualities of this beer resembled a regular IPA more than a DIPA, IMO. It's possible that the travel that brought this beer to me caused some of its characteristics to seem more muted, and I'd love to try one fresh and local to see how it compares. It was still a good beer, but whether it's fair or not I guess I was hoping for something more along the lines of Heady Topper.

Best DIPA ive ever had...plain and simple. Aroma is extremely tropical with beautiful pineyness. Pours a sticky white lacey head with dark tangerine color. Basically flawless beer in my opinion I just wish they would produce more of this beer in CT!!! Today I filled up two growlers and every time I am simply amazed

This poured as expected for an IPA with a thick amber hue and an ivory head of dense foam.

The nose is thick and sweet with fruity hop character. I catch strong grapefruit, tangerines and apricot with tones of honey and rye.

The flavor is dry, bitter, herbal, vegetative and floral. None of the sweet fruit hops was found on my palate but instead I taste a more raw hop personality. The malt backbone is a tad unorthodox as it does not give off a sweet caramel but more a dry rye or grain.

The feel is exceptionally dry a bit bitter with no astringency and a simple ease.

For a style that has been beat to death this gives a different perspective as the malt used has a different taste and feel.
