Pint on draft at Yard House in Boston.

Appearance: A mostly clear straw with almost no head. Some lace.

Aroma: Hops! Big hoppy, floral punch. Lots of citrus.

Taste: Follows nose. Citrusy and fruity with a huge hop presence. Tasty. Alcohol seems moderate; hops are not in any way moderate.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly drinkable for a big hoppy beer.

Overall: This IPA skates right up to the edge of tasting like dish soap and doesn't go over it. A big hoppy beast at an approachable ABV. Good stuff.

P- On draft at The New Tavern,in a pint glass.

L- Soapy white head that stands 1 finger tall,with good retention and sticky lacing.Hazy gold colored colored body,with moderate clarity.Light amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get pine and citrus hops,with sweet malt backing.

T- The Palate follows the nose,pine and citrus up front,and sweet malt with floral hops on the back.

F- Medium bodied with moderate amount oxidation on the tongue.Dry on the finish.

O- Very good IPA,I would drink this all the time.Definitely recommend this to hop heads.

Almost clear straw colored draft with a finger of head, good lacing. Nose good balance of hops and malt, more fruity than piney. Taste is hop forward and brings more pine, bitter finish is also balances. Great offering!

Look: After pouring it into my glass there is a noticeable line of white head to it after a soft pour. The color to is a deep yellow or a soft hue of orange.
Smell: A subtle amount of orange to the smell and other then that it really lacked anything else.
Taste: Mostly grapefruit tasted here and there were notes of oranges as the beer went down the hatch.
Feeling: Goes down without any notes of alcohol in my mouth. This drink is too soft for my tastes.
Overall: This drink is truly the definition of an "average" beer to me.
