16oz Can poured into a Spiegelau IPA Glass. Canned on date: 09/05/2023.

Appearance: Pours a rich, semi clear amber with 2 fingers of head

Aroma: Fruity hop aromas interspersed with some cracker-malt and fresh bread

Taste: Full hop flavor up front with bready malt notes in the middle with a clean finish that leaves residual hop notes, well-balanced without any excessive bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium with a satisfying dry finish

Overall: An outstanding IPA that tends towards West-Coast yet being from New England. I purposely am reviewing a can thats 3 months old and it is still drinking fantastic

Packaged Sept 18/23 - purchased cold from convenience store in Stowe, VT - kept cold.
Pours a bright clear golden orange with three fingers of foamy just slight off while head. A touch of chill haze.
A lot of ripe citrus and tropical fruit on the nose - pineapple, mango, papaya. Floral and piney and as warmed a touch dank.
Sweet tropical fruit, ripe orange , bready malt sweetness in the palate but with a spicy and piney bitterness, some notes of grapefruit peel.
Medium mouthfeel - smooth and slick hiding the 8% making it dangerously drinkable; moderate carbonation - bittersweet finish.

Had on tap at 1914 house Niwot

On arrival nearly 2 fingers of bright white head sat on top of a clear, deep, but still pale, golden body. Sparse fine lacing is left.

Aroma is floral, fruity, and piney, immediately with big hop notes, backed up by a nice soft sweet pale malt. Very appealing and comes off as refreshing.

Taste is bitter, but less so than expected. The hops are piney, earthy, and slightly sweet and fruity, with a grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish that is again balanced by a mellow honey sweet pale malt. There is a definite citrus brightness but that isn't the main thing here.

Feel is super drinkable and even dry. This is damn refreshing for the ABV

Overall this is super solid, and in my opinion a benchmark of the "modern" WCIPA. Not a product of the IBU wars but still true to some of the original American hop flavors. Not a Juicy/hazy IPA.
