4.5/5  rDev +9.5%

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange copper color with a foamy one finger off white head

Smell: Huge blend of tropical and citrus fruits (Mango, tangerines, apricots, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit). Pine resin comes through too, as well as slight onion and alcohol which gives my nose a nice burn. Really a lovely smelling beer

Taste: A ton of tropical notes upfront, malt sweetness in the middle, and citrusy grapefruit to finish it off. Pine resin throughout. Burps are great as well!

Mouthfeel: Medium body; Oily and extremely smooth with a slight bitter finish

Overall: I never thought id say this, but LT made an A beer with this one! It's unbelievable to me actually. I think they hired someone from Stone or something to brew this. This is a incredibly clean smelling and tasting IPA. All the notes you want in a IPA is in this beer. Tropical, citrus, pine, with just enough sweet malts to round it out. Also one of the best IPAs I have found in its price range (Hop Nosh being another example) and would make for a perfect go to. Rivals some of the best on the market. Definitely recommended!

On-tap at Miracle of Science in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A- Body is hazy golden yellow. One finger white head, fair retention, rings upon rings of lacing. Looks good, and after walking the entire Freedom Trail and then walking to the MIT campus, I was ready for a beer.

S- Grapefruit, citrus, pineapple and pale malt, in that order. Smells quite hoppy indeed.

F- Clean citrus hops come out as grapefruits and oranges with a leafiness. The bread and biscuit pale malts complement the hops nicely enough but this is definitely not the paragon of balance. Which is definitely not a bad thing here.

M- Medium bodied with a dry finish. Citrus bitterness on the finish is not terribly high; in fact my IPA-hating wife considered this one to be quite tasty as it is the bitterness that she usually objects to.

O- Very good IPA with plenty of hop character; enjoyed this one a lot with my lunch on a humid hot day.
