-Spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Deep orange has a O.J. haziness. A quick paced and steady show of effervesce. Big frothy cream head is steady atop with a clingy ring lacing.

S: Fresh lemon squeeze scent, tart oranges, lightly dry with a touch of wet grassiness. Dry grainy finish with an ordinary strength, probably one of the only glaring weak points of this beer.

T: Spicy lemon-lime and citrus hops burst on the opening sip, delivering a sharp bite along with some juicy oranges and tropical notes. Big juicy flavor component, before proceeding to some tart citrus and sour whiskey alcohol notes and grapefruit. Grassy hops from the amarillo, along with some citra-peach highlights, perhaps from the yeast, along with some wet lemony hops. Final of semi-dry citra hopping and grassiness.

M: Juicy resin mouthful, grapefruit juice like, medium body with a smooth tart character and light carbonation factor.

O: A very good show and blend of the Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Lots of sticky juicy hop resins, before succeeding to a dry hop fade. Citra-grassiness, tropical with a big sharp hop bite on the open along with a juicy mouthful.

I got a little aggressive on the pour, leading to a massive frothy head that left behind some sticky lacing over yhis solidly golden, ever so hazy but otherwise clear IPA. Nose is at first kind of tangerine, but as it warms up I get more earthy veggie than anything else. Taste leans more towards a sweet citrus but also has that veggie thing happening, which is how it closes. Finish is insanely dry while leaving only trace bitterness and little else behind.

L- Nice Golden orange hazy IPA with a solid 1 finger head.
S- Juicy, candied citrusy aroma with a boozy bend. The citrus and pine hops are very prevalent on the nose.
T- Sweet malts with citrus and pine. Bitter hops are followed with great grapefruit-y citrusy bitterness.
F- Milky and fresh.
O- This is a great example of the NE IPA style! Great citrus and pine are present combined to create a milky, easy drinking brew. Very refreshing! Keep it coming!

Can stamped 12/19/17

Hazy orange-amber with a towering lumpy off-white head. Smells of orange marmalade, grapefruit, and toast. Muted fruity hoppy flavor - almost stale tasting despite being only two weeks old. Dark greenness, grapefruit peel, tea, moderate aspirin bitterness. It's not terrible, it's just "okay" and absolutely not worth $5/can. Pretty easy to drink from a mouthfeel standpoint, nice and crisp in the finish. Overall though, it's eclipsed by so many other IPAs at this point. The other varieties were much better.
