look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Looks semi-opaque, peach and apricot hue.Nice creamy head. Smells very citrus. Smells like orangeade you would get on the boardwalk, also reminiscent of "Tang" Taste is surprising, cantaloupe, honey dew, watermelon; (a melon bomb) Feels smooth and somewhat lacking carbonation for my taste. Overall a solid NEIPA. Great summer higher ABV alternative. I noticed after my review, that the review before mine mentions "Tang" I did not think many people would remember that beverage mix.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16 ounce can, dated 5/19/18. Poured into tulip. Pours a Tang orange with orange tinted white head. 1” finger’s worth. Most of it receded with a ring of bubbles on the inside perimeter.
Smells of orange soda-intense, possibly artificial orange, sweet florals. It’s not offensive at all.
The taste is papaya, juice, soft tropical fruits. Some citrus finish of sweet grapefruit.
Slick mouthfeel, syrupy. Again, an undrcarbonated orange soda feeling here. I don’t mind it really. I’ve had One, Two Claw before and this is nothing like the others. It’s different and I like it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 16 oz can into my Bruery snifter.

Look: Hazy and opaque, old gold/dark yellow body. Creamy half finger head retained throughout drinking.

Smell: Candied lemon. Toffee. Slightest pine and orange marmalade. Guava.

Taste: Earthy lemongrass. Citrus-y body: clementine, ripe Florida orange, grapefruit pith. Some sweet caramel notes on the back end. Black peppery alcohol finish.

Feel: Medium bodied; thicker appearance. Drinks easier than it looks.

Overall: Decent offering from Westbrook if you want a heavier IPA.

[IMG] Pours a very cloudy yellow with a massivev2 plus finger head that leaves loads of thick patches of lace as it slowly settles into a thin layer of bubbles, excellent retention. 4.25

Smell is guava, apricot, mandarin orange, pineapple, and some grapefruit rind. 4

Taste follows tropical front to back, loaded with guava, mandarin orange, pineapple, and a nice balanced grapefruit finish that is exceptionally balanced. 4.25

Mouthfeel is pretty big, soft mouthfeel with a moderate amount of life, not dry but a stickyness from all the hops, and at 8% ABV crazy drinkable. 4.25

Overall this is an exceptional NE style DIPA given to me by @DoctorZombies . I really am loving this more and more as I get deeper into it. I would love to drink this again. 4.25

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: hazy orange color with a 1/2" head that lingers around a while. Some lace develops.

Smell: mild pineapple and orange aroma with some earthy tones.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, mango, grass, and an earthy and spicy bite at the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp from start to finish.

Overall: an easy to drink imperial IPA that has a nice flavor profile and is well balanced.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the Crowler into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy orange-ish with a big, fluffy white head that settles slowly and leaves behind some lace.

S: Citrusy hops - grapefruit, clementine oranges and orange peel - and a touch of earthy hops.

T: Modest caramel malt or sweet malt foundation. Hops call to mind citrus (primarily oranges and creamsicles), ripe peaches and some earthiness. There's a spicy bite at the finish - presumably from the rye. Warmth felt in the belly, likely from the 8% ABV.

M: A bit creamy in feel, call it medium-to-full in heft.

O: Very good beer. Tasty, but different from the stuff I've been drinking lately (i.e., a lot of NE IPAs).

This one pours a very hazy and creamy looking vivid orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells delicious- there's tons of peach and pineapple, with dank weed and pine.

This honestly gives off the impression of hoppy sherbet- it's got such a creamy taste to it, with super juicy tropical fruit- peach and pineapple mainly, a bit of tangerine creamsicle, with a healthy weedy bitterness. There is very little flavor added from the rye. This is truly exceptional and everything I want in a DIPA.

This is creamy, rich, and so soft, with a really high level of drinkability.

This whole series is really awesome stuff. As the ABV goes up and the claws increase, you definitely get less of the rye spice, but they're all amazing hoppy beers.

Poured into a snifter. Very hazy/borderline turbid with a yellow-golden color. Large and long-lasting white head. Aroma was tropical fruit with lots of pineapple. The taste really stood out, with bright and juicy pineapple, mango, and oranges. Very muted and soft bitterness. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky finish. Outstanding.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy orange color with a short lived one inch white head that left spotty lacing. Smells of overripe tropical fruits and sweet malts. Tastes of overripe mango and peach, tangerine, sweet malts and an earthy quality. Medium bodied and carbonated, slightly dry and bitter finish.
