Going to school in Worcester I have a soft spot for the home team. That being said let's get into this.
As advertised this is a classic left Coast ipa in the looks department (green flash west coast ipa).
Nose is very tropical and pleasant at first. Backend giving off a charred fruit not much pine. It is well done.
Taste is excellent up front that west coast feel. I find this style getting more simple as you go through it. I am tasting regular beer at certain points later.
Feel is okay.
I think they set out to do what they were going for which is always interesting. Even if it isn't your favorite style in this beer.

Hazy orange with a two finger solid white head. Great retention and moderate lacing. Smells strongly of fruity and floral hops, with a slight peppery kick. Taste leans towards an overly bitter hoppiness that masks much of the tropical nuances going on in this beer. Very robust mouthfeel with a tapering, slightly watery finish. Overall a pretty run-of-the-mill IPA.
