look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Canned 12/20/17. Frothy white head of 1.5 fingers, and a light hazy amber glow. Lots of lace left behind as the head recedes!

Aromas of mangoes and grapefruit right off the bat, following with a necessary onion-pine (for the west coast vibe) and more fruits.

Some pithy, hoppy grapefruit out front, followed by candied tangerine, and then the IBU's slam home hard with a harsh pine bite followed by lingering resins. Some wood chips also linger around.

Feel is crisp, creamy, and then on the finish it's resiny. Nice.

Overall a pretty decent IPA. It's not groundbreaking and has a pretty high perceptible IBU but I think that's the general idea. I think these guys did for the west coast what the west coast does for the east coast - attempt a style but not quite reach the level of expertise. That's okay, New England - I like your IPA's much better.

Appearance - pours three fingers of pillowy eggshell white head, great retention. Lacing sticks to the glass in thick rings that don't want to disappear. Semi translucent, slightly hazy, with a golden orange color.

Smell - light pine and citrus fruit, tangerine. Light floral notes. Somewhat subdued.

Taste - citrus fruit; lemon, grapefruit, more tangerine. Light bready/yeasty notes. Leading to a lightly hoppy, bitter finish.

Mouth feel - light bodied, very smooth finish.

Overall - really solid IPA. Well done, extremely drinkable, but not quite up to par with other local offerings from trillium or tree house. Definitely worth buying again, though.

What is said about this is all true but what stands out for me is the after taste when the juice kicks in and stays with you

Pours a cloudy gold with thick head and lacing. Nose is very citrus forward with hops and some honey. The taste is very good, nice sweet hoppy mix, cool citrus, some dryness from grapefruit, and some rind bitterness. Super clean and easy to drink IPA, on the backside almost getting some biscuit notes. Very well done.
