12oz can - no indication on the label as to how this one differs from Hop Ottin', but I have my suspicions.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, rocky, and chunky eggshell white head, which leaves some stellar Continental Drift lace around the glass as it lazily subsides.

It smells of gritty and grainy pale malt, a flinty chalkiness, acerbic citrus rind, some indistinct tropical fruitiness, and fairly tame leafy, floral, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is sort of tart grapefruit and orange juice, crackery and bready pale malt, an ephemeral caramel sweetness, still muddled exotic fruity notes, and more floral, grassy, and wet pinecone verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite mild in its low-tuned frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a wee airy creaminess settling in once things warm up a tad around here. It finishes off-dry, the mixed fruitiness helping fend off the lingering citrusy and piney bitterness.

Overall, this is a pleasant enough Yankee IPA, but, of course, we now have to determine which region of the good ol' US of A that this baby is emulating. I'm going for NE-IPA, or Vermont-style, or whatever you call it, for all the reasons elucidated above. Besides all that, I did rather enjoy Eeetah! IPA, and would definitely have it again.

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours golden with a subtle haze; huge chunky white head that falls very slowly leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are subtle, but very nice. Lots of citrus with some hints of tropical fruit. Orange and grapefruit seem to lead the way. Some cracker malts in the mix. Some floral notes. The flavors seem to follow the nose. More orange and grapefruit along with some pineapple. Nice amount of fresh pine and fresh grass. It's slightly sweet with a moderate bitterness. Solid malt backbone, but the hop flavors and hop bitterness isn't diminished at all. Very crisp. It finishes juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth. Easy to drink.

This is a nice IPA. There's something very enjoyable about this one. It's subtle but bold at the same time. It might not be a "mind-blowing game changer", but it's well crafted and very enjoyable.

Pours a yellow to amber, slightly cloudy, with a foamy white head. Smells of citrus and peach. Peach skin is dominant in the flavor, complimented by a somewhat buttery sweet bread maltiness. Medium carbonation and balanced just barely favoring bitter, smooth and just a tad richer than crisp feel. Overall, a pretty good IPA, but honestly don't see myself revisiting out of my own pocket. Cheers!
