(another review culled from my cell phone. Please excuse the brevity.)

12 oz tap pour. 3/4 inch of white head that runs away fairly quickly. Clear, orange color. Floral hops aromas and more in the taste. Medium body, almost light. Malt is evident, the hop bite is almost an after thought. Feel like I'm drinking potpourri tea...

Was really wanting to love this beer, having lived in Boston and love the town. I guess the fact that I had this immediately following Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra IPA, it really didn't stand a chance. I'll look at this again when there's no comparison, but on first blush, this is about as generic an IPA can get (consider the comparison)...
