Pours a clear golden color with a tight creamy head, settles into a nice ring around the glass.

The aroma is of grapefruit and savory hops, onion. Light honey sweetness. Not very robust.

The taste is of light grapefruit, onion and grass. The malt is bready with honey sweetness. Again not very robust.

The feel is moderate with fizzy carbonation. Sweet to start but finishes with a drying grassy bitterness, chalky.

Meh, I expected more from the name. Not super hoppy and the hop profile is just ok.

12 oz. Can > dimpled mug.

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

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 tangy ,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. Very, very crisp with a big, herbs and spices bite.

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. The crisp testure and sharp hop charecter make this one worth checking out.

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.
