On tap at the Reservoir tonight.

The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with great head retention and considerable lacing On the nose, there's considerable citrus, along with tropical fruit, light pine and light dank weed. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, on this easy going, easy to appreciate IPA. There's decent bitterness in the finish as well, which helps to buoy the tropical fruit and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a fairly long, lightly bitter finish. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is terrific.

Excellent NE style IPA, with just enough bitterness to keep things interesting. Very easy to enjoy and appreciate IPA.

Look: Yellow, hazy, turbid with fluffy head that really lingers. Medium low carbonation.
Smell: Dank, a little funky, earthy.
Taste: Dank, earthy, really easy drinking.
Feel: On the thinner side.
Overall: A great IPA that is very unique, has New England elements with west coast elements. However, I prefer Edward.

On tap in a mason jar at The Malt House in NYC.

A hazy gradient of yellow-orange. Sticky lacing and a lasting, thin head.

Nose is awesome. Can tell right away this is going to be good. Orange, pineapple, and vanilla. Been drinking a lot of Tired Hands lately and this is similar. So fresh.

Taste is tangerine, melon, and pine. Other tropical fruits. Low to medium bitterness.

Zippy, carbonated opening with a soft, round finish. Medium mouthfeel. Juicy and refreshing.

Overall, damn. Could drink this all day. About as good as an IPA gets.

Poured from a growler into a wine glass. A hazy golden color with a thick white head. Nice resiliency and lacing. Aromas were berries, dank resin, and dough. The taste followed closely, with tropical fruit, berries, and a dank resiny quality. A nice feel and a clean finish. Well-balanced and tasty - hard to imagine a better beer.

On tap at Manhattan Pizza & Pub in Burlington.

Pours a nice, murky orange.

Juicy on the nose, tons of mango.

Taste follows the nose, juicy mangoes and pineapple, topped off with a nice balanced hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is soft and smooth.

Really nice IPA, well balanced and subtle. Very refreshing and smooth.
