From a 12oz can dated 8/2/22 into a pint glass.

Pours an opaque orangish yellow with about one finger of white head. Not so good retention, decent lacing.

Nice strong smells of orange, pineapple, peach, grapefruit and pine.

Taste follows. Citrus juice on the front of the sip, light bitterness follows.

Here's where I think this beer excels-this beer is pretty thick and full bodied. Juicy after taste. Medium carbonation.

Overall, this is a pretty standard, non-descript NEIPA except for the body. Don't think I've had one this thick except from places like Tree House and Trillium. Still a long way to go on the taste but this was a pleasant surprise.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a one finger head; decent retention and squiggles of lace

Smell: Vague tropical fruit and melon tones along with orange and grapefruit

Taste: Tropical fruit, melon and caramel flavors forward with spicy rye tones developing; orange and grapefuit citrus emerges, in the middle, bringing a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: Decent but nothing particularly memorable

Perfectly hazy bright maize with a thick but moderately short white head settling to a creamy blanket.

It starts juicy and citrusy but immediately becomes resinously bitter with hints of pine wood and aspirin, and even a touch of cattiness, but all softened by a biscuit malt. The nose adds a pleasant vanilla-orange combo.

The medium body is nicely fluffy and finishes slightly wet.

I may have done the OG Claws out of order, but hey, I was too excited to finally be here to fully study the menu, so I missed a few things at first.

L-cloudy opaque orangeish tan. Mild head but attractive white lacing
S-not as much going on here. Some faint citrus, not much hops
T-balanced, approachable flavors. Like the aroma, there’s some citrus. It has a bready flavor that avoids excessive sweetness. It finishes without any peppery or spice flavors
F-crisp and refreshing without the stickiness I expect from the style
O-not the most complex of beers. I’m not sure I detect the rye or many of the hops or much complexity, but it is one of the most accessible New England ipas I’ve had.

12 oz. can. A little hazy. Smells quite citrus with a little bit of sweetness and hints of rye. Tastes much more strongly of rye. Sweet with citrusy hops. Low bitterness, but rye helps with the sweetness. Not sure I love this, but it's ok.

Two Claw has a thick, ivory head, and an opaque, milk-orange appearance, with a bit of lacing. The aroma is of slight fruit and some white bread crust. The flavor is of building bitterness, rye spice, slight orange juice, and lupulin powder. Two Claw has a heavy body and a dry side finish.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, citrus. Taste is oranges, grapefruit, rye, passion fruit, moderate bitterness. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

After the large off white head with its light lacing had settled to nearly nothing, someone sat down next to me in the tavern and asked if I was drinking grapefruit juice. And that was a pretty accurate description. Could also be one of the descriptors in both the aroma and taste. But it is really not that one dimensional. The aroma also imparts notes of tropical fruit and mango. The flavor lands qualities like orchard fruit, stone fruit and pear. But there is a hiccup in the aftertaste with a mild metallic twist. Medium bodied with a lingering finish.
