This is my go to beer. "What do you have on Tap?", "I will have an IPA".
In MA if you ask for an IPA you get a harpoon.
It pours a yellow/golden color with some amount of carbonation. Nice tight knit buble structure on top that is nice and sticky icky.
Smell is straight hops. Floral and citrus.
Taste is Citrus grapefruit rind that disapates to a more floral touch..
I love this brew. I drink it all the time. It is always in my fridge. If you want to see what HArpoon is about, check this one out. It is in everybar in Boston. Look for the Yellow harpoon tap and drink away.

Pint on draft aboard the Cross Sound Ferry, headed from Orient, N.Y. to New London, Conn.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a short white head. Carbonation is moderate to low. Leaves some pretty good lacing on the way down.
Aroma: The aromas are kind of subdued for an IPA, but I get a sense of hops, grapefruit, lemon and citrus.
Taste: The taste follows the nose - a bitter grapefruit taste followed by a somewhat piny finish.
Mouthfeel: This beer has a nice depth for an easy, summery IPA.
Overall: This is a pretty decent standard IPA. I don't want to describe it as "entry level" but it's a solid IPA for folks who don't do IPAs with heavy frequency. It's not a hop bomb or an especially complex beer, but it's nice for what it is.
Serving type: on-tap
