I'm drinking a 32 oz can. Popping the can releases a big whiff of resiny hops but then it settles down to rich malt and white bread aromas. Pours hazy gold under a 2” white foam cap with a very light gold tint and very fine, uniform bubbles. It quickly settles down to a thick lacy foam. It attacks the palate with big melon to tropical fruit and then finishes with a long lasting drying, slightly astringent bitterness that is pretty close to grapefruit rind and lingers on, slowly mellowing out with traces of sweet berry. It has a very creamy texture with a very fine bead.

Very good IPA. Living in New England, I don't get often enough.

I love this beer but apparently I have to "justify" my rating.
