Hazy orange pour with an inch of white fluffy head
Smells of mango, pineapple, peach, papaya, kiwi
Taste matches the nose with a slight grassy, metallic hint
Pillowy mouthfeel, awesome for the style reminds me of TH feel
Only dinged for the look, but otherwise outstanding -one of my favorite HF!

On tap at Malt & Mold. Poured a completely opaque golden orange with a nice foamy head to it. The nose is very fruity with citrus playing lead. The flavor follows the nose, definitely a juice bomb with the slightest amount of bitterness and malt. The feel is medium, decent carbonation, and a quick finish. This one has been on my list for a while and glad to finally be having it. A northeast IPA done to perfection.

A bit more subtle than many of my favorites but definitely makes the cut.

Had at the Blind Tiger NYC in a tulip glass. Great look to this, classic NE IPA. Big citrus smell setting the stage. Taste was good finish was a little iffy had all the components of a great IPA. Really enjoyed this would love to see it more often.
