Glad to try this recently controversial IPA. Canned 12/29. Pours a nice golden straw color and reeks of hops. This is a bitter ipa, and as the carbonation in the mouth subsides the hops take over even more lingering around. For 8.8% abv it is a smooth drinker but a bit too harsh all around. Id definitely drink again but wouldn't search to hard to get.

A welcome addition to the NE ale line-up... my favorites have that cloudy apricot color, where this is lighter and a little clearer.... nice nose and hoppy flavors but falls a little short on the citrus end and a little more bitter than need be... overall, a solid drinking beer and though not as good as heady, dinner, or HF offerings, is very tasty!!

If I define Heady as 5.0, and I've had none better, then 4.25 is where I rate this. Nowhere near the creaminess, nose, or taste of Heady. I find it to be a touch bitter for the style, "Not that that's a bad thing" A little more malt forward, and less citrus, less oomph. Glad to see Connecticut entering the big leagues, but I'd rather have Sip o Sunshine, Edward, Heady, Wormtown, or Baxter's Bootleg over this.

Maybe I got a underachiever 4 pack.
