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.

L - Clear light-golden pour with 2 finger white head. Nice lacing throughout.

T - Wow, again. Hops galore but not overwhelming.
F - Smooth with semi-dry to dry finish.
O - Man, what a good beer. Welcome to RI, Wormtown! Will have more of this.

Clear vibrant gold with a large, fluffy white foam leaving a nice thin layer of lace.

Smell is pine, lemon, and orange with a slight hint of dank cannabis and a biscuity rug background.

Taste is quite bitter and West Coast, bringing with it notes of pine, grapefruit, lemon, and again that biscuity rug.

The medium body has a nicely consistent, moderate froth, finishing semi-dry to dry.

On tap at Captain's Den in Plymouth Ma. A good look and citrusy nose is followed by a citrusy taste that may include lemon, grapefruit and others. A touch of sweetness[honey?] makes this a very easy-drinking and smooth beer. We enjoyed it.

Bottle poured into a snifter. The color is a light golden orange.
The smell is a burst of hops, big citric smell with a little tropical (mango).
The taste follows the smell, it is citric and tropical, very hoppy taste.
It has a medium light body, a dry and little bitter ending.
For a big beer, it is very drinkable, goes down easily.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Look: Crystal clear yellow gold with a thick white head. Moderate activity.

Smell: Pungent pine hops. Light floral notes. A hint of alcohol. All hops.

Taste: Big hop attack with notes of pine and bitter floral. Light citrus fades into a body of fresh cereal grains.

Feel: Medium body. Medium plus bitterness. Mild alcohol. Good carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: A good if standard west coast style ipa. The hoppy bitterness is welcome after so many juicy New England style IPAs. Yet, it's all pretty par for the course. Also the alcohol is too present for a 6.5% beer. Average.

On tap at Tap City Grille in Hyannis. Pours a golden effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.
