Citrus and pine. Resiny mouth coating. Good stuff, especially for the price. Careful, it will punch you in the face.

Another great IPA by Wachusett brewing. Love the name..not sure what is about? Great taste..strong and heavy with a kick. I usually drink the bottles only...

Earthy and floral with a hint of citrus and spice. Nice hazy yellow with decent lacing. Smell matches flavor pretty spot on with some biscuity malt presence. Decent DIPA with a huge smack of bitterness.

Sampled at the brewery and it looked good and smelled good, but the flavor was very basic with mild citrus hops and a malty backbone that resembled biscuit. With that being said, it was not overly hoppy to be deemed a DIPA. It did mask the ABV quite well, but overall it was just a good, regular IPA in my view.
