Very nice milky feel to this ipa. I mean the consistency more than the taste. The label is something special. The name - phenomenal. The beer itself is something that I almost want to be better than it is. I get it - New England hazy ipa. The style. It's there and it's special but nothing craAazy. I'd perfer beers from the other half brewery in brooklyn new york but perhaps I'm spoiled by pure quality in my vacinity.

This is one of the best beers I have found in the state of maryland, and I had to do a bit of research to find a distibutor that had beer of this caliber. No hate. Pure love, peace, and emojis

Upon the initial sip of this India Pale Ale the immediate thickness of the frothy base of the beer became apparent. Refreshing the whole sip, this is quite a unique take on the IPA.

Beautiful OJ color with terrific lacing. The nose is a bit muted but the taste more than makes up for it. Nice job Captain! They are a bit late to the whole NE Hzy IPA thing but it’s nice to know that an established brewer can reinvent itself to carft an IPA that can hold its own with some of the best.

This might be Captain Lawrence's crowning achievement! An excellent take on the hazy New England IPA, and the added Citra dry hopping gives it a juicy punch that delights the taste buds. The only critique is about the feel of it. The aftertaste ends pretty abruptly and doesn't linger like a lot of beers like it do. It tastes so good, I want it to hang around a bit!
