16 oz. can. Sedimenty pale orange. Smells of lemon soap and some orange zest. Tastes soapy, too. Lemon, pine, aggressive bitterness right up front. Or maybe my senses have been dulled by zero IBU IPAs and it seems like a lot of bitterness. Pine resiny back end with a lingering soapiness. Medium body. My wife didn't like it, which I can understand. At least it's not just juice, so I don't mind drinking it. Also, I have no idea how old this can is.

From the bottom of the can: "ETSM" then a bunch of test on top of itself.

Appearance: The beer is a cloudy orange with a medium white head with good retention and lacing.

Aroma: It has a fairly strong aroma of tangerines, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple skin.

Taste: It has a lot of mango flavor. There is only a touch of greenness to the beer in the shape of a bit of pineapple skin. Mostly it is just mango but it is a very pronounced mango flavor that tastes good.

Mouthfeel: It has a nice smooth mouthfeel with zero hop bite. Bitterness is low.

Overall: All-around this is an outstanding example of a New England IPA. It is a better example than most and it is competitive with some of the earlier leaders of the style. I would recommend seeking it out if you can and I would drink it again.

Foamy head. Unfiltered body. Juicy. Pretty smooth bite to it as well.

16oz can - so what is supposed to embue this offering with soul? Not asking for a friend.

This beer pours a hazy, medium apricot yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly eggshell white head, which leaves some sparse remote islet pattern lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, a strong chalkiness, some muddled domestic and tropical citrus rind, and plain leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, orange and white grapefruit citrus pith, a damp minerality, and more understated leafy, herbal, and piney verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-assuring frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and mostly smooth, with just a touch of hop astringency exacting a minor tithe at this point in the game. It finishes trending dry, the various hops and stoney character the order of the lingering day.

Overall - this comes across as an agreeable enough version of the IPA sub-style, made by someone with more than a passing familiarity with the New England hype. Crisp, and easy enough to put back (despite the extra 2 points of the ol' wowee sauce).

Not sure how this is so highly rated... Hazy bright orange. Medium light mouthfeel. Smells of tangerine. Tasteslike tangerine pith. Nothing special, not hoppy in an east or west coast fashion. I was disappointed.

Medium hazy yellow, white head leaving very little lacy.

Pineapple, citrus and pale malt in the nose and on the palate.

Light-Medium mouthfeel. Soft, light tingly carbonation. Easy drinking.

Good but not great. Would have again but go out of my way to find.

Pours golden and slightly hazy. Packed full of Citra, this is hazy and juicy with a bright citrusy and tropical aroma flavor. Fruity and bitter without being to sweet. Nice hop presence. Medium body.
