Had this on tap at the Burlington Maritime Festival Umphrees McGee concert. Served in a 12 oz clear plastic cup. A clear copper-yellow with a thin white head. Mostly malt in the nose....not a hop bomb at all. Taste was better than I expected after the lack of hop aroma. Caramel malt sweetness with a slightly bitter backbone...although lacking significant hop flavor. Nice refreshing beer. Perfect for the occasion as enjoyed by the horde.

I am an IPA whore. The more hops that drop kick my tonsils on the way down, the better. In my honest opinion, this should be an "all day" IPA. It goes down great, but may leave you wanting more. By no means is it tasteless, yellow, boiled wheat by-product, but drinks more like a pilsner than an IPA. Harpoon makes great products, and this beer is no exception. Just know, it is not going be like a lot if the IPA's on the shelf nowadays. It's damn good on any occasion, great with any meal, best when shared with friends....or.....well, don't be a dick! If your hosting, the least you can do is serve beer. This would be a great beer to serve.
