12 oz. Can > dimpled mug.

Slight hazy gold with plenty of bubbles to make a fine, full and thick white sea-foam cap. Pretty chunky foam.

A very heady hop aroma! Three classic American hop varieties make for a full-on hop experience for the nose. Tangy, herbal, citrus and slightly sweet fruits and earthy tones abound. Plenty of caramel sweet and sour bready malt to back up the hops as well.

A mega-crisp bite! Medium feel with a big hop taste. Mildly bitter earthy tones, herbal, light citrus and light fruit flavor's, pine and citrus , mostly from big alpha style hops. The malt is no joke, giving good balance of deep malt charecter to this IPA. The malt is a little extra sour-bready with clean edges.

The hops are very flavorful, but in more of a classic Pale Ale perspective. This is certainly a very nice hop effect but not at all a hop bomb. A good "beginner" IPa.

This beer is not overwhelming is any way, but solid in every way. Not very superb taste and lacks any smell quality, but, a good blend of hops and a smooth finish make this beer very drinkable. Fuck the Red Sox tho!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is all hops, but not overwhelming. The taste is similar to the nose and has a slight bitterness at the end. An excellent beer.

Subtle, but flavorful. This IPA is not as bitter as most, but still has plenty of flavor. Orange-Amber color, not strong in the smell department, smooth mouth feel and finish.

A = Amber with orange hue
S = First sip was hoppy but not overbearing, and a sweet malt linger
T = Easy drinking malty IPA
M = Medium bodied, session style IPA

O = Not a huge traditional IPA fan but this one is done right. Love the Red Sox connection as well.
