A: Poured from a can into a pint glass. Opaque with haziness and a light brownish color that looks like hay. A thin, white ring of head with some wispy lacing.

S: Woah does this beer smell enticing to hopheads. Bright citrus and pine, fresh grass and flowers all hit up-front with a slightly bready finish. Notes of grapefruit zest, fresh needles, tulips and a touch of vanilla on the end.

T: Tastes like a summertime DIPA, with bright characteristics, a refreshing hop bite, and a smooth cooling citrus. This is hop-forward with a lemony citrus flavor riding over a nicely balanced bready malt. The finish is just a little dry, with notes of flower petals and pine cones lingering. Great flavor profile, without a hint of alcoholic esters. This is a surprisingly refreshing DIPA.

M: Smooth and crisp with a little dryness on the after-feel. This fills up your mouth without crowding it, and leaves you wanting more.

O: This beer is a definite for those who seek aromatic, flavorful, and even-keeled Double IPAs. Its not going to hit you over the head with anything, but it's going to please you all-around.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a loose full finger collar with reasonable hang time. Leaves an average amount of lacing. Visibly effervescent with tons of tiny bubbles clinging to the sides and keeping the head alive.

Wonderful Nose!! Could smell the fruity citrus character at arms length as soon as the can opened. Big tangerine grapefruit orange peel aroma. Best part so far! Bells and whistles are going off that this one is gonna be hoppy too.

The effervescence lightens up the mouth feel pretty well. I’m enjoying the sharp tone and it’s a real compliment to the flavor. It struck me as being on the dry side at first, but after several mouthfuls I’ve built up a substantial oily resin aftertaste that is lingering REALLY NICELY : )

This one isn’t bashful!! Full flavored, the grapefruit blasts through and is joined by a piney resin that’s FULL ON! Well past halfway down…the nose is still big and complimentary.

A REAL TREAT!! The 8.8% ABV is timid and well hidden. Boy, this one had a lot going on…and was a real PLEASURE to consider. THANKS JAY!!!!

Poured into a stemmed wineglass from the 12 oz. can(drove to the northernmost packie on 395 in CT that carries this in Putnam Ct to get this.

a: Deep orange color, small head with crazy graffiti level lacing.

s: Fresh hops, I've never smelled a beer quite like this. Most hoppy beer still smells roughly like beer, this is something else altogether. The is truly smells more like a hop pillow or newly arrived fresh hops. This aroma is totally new to me.

t: Much more balanced than expected. Nicely hidden alcohol, crisp hoppy taste, but very little aftertaste.

m: Moderate and smooth, the medium carbonation. Very balanced.

o: Amazing. At or near top of its class. I really wish they would expand distribution into Mass and would love to try their fuzzy baby ducks IPA.
