From the can, it pours a hazy light amber with a modest head that slowly diminishes as you enjoy the beer, leaving lacing. Citrus and malt in the nose, the same for the mouth. Not bad! Porbably great on the docks on Nantucket!

12 oz can into chalice. Dated 10/15/18.
Not sure its the same beer. says Indie IPA on can and ABV is 6.00.
Look is semi clear golden. Smell is light hop and yeast. Taste pretty much follows. Feel is light. Overall, ok beer that is worth a drink but I would not seek out.

Pours a clear yellow gold with a 1 finger bright white head. Not much aroma, vaguely citrus and pine notes. Taste is light malt up front with a nice warm, slightly sweet flavor. Hops are light but present, mostly pine accented by the medium bitterness.. crisp not sticky.

Has bad ratings and i think its a bit unfair. Before the neipa craze this would have been a well balanced, tasty ipa. Deserves better.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a clear yellow with a thick white head.

Aroma is biscuit malt and lemon hippiness.

Taste is maybe a little hop faded, but it has a nice balanced dry malt.

12 Ounce bottle stamped Apr. 26 2017. Good color and head with a slightly citrus aroma. Some malt in the taste along with a well balanced hop grapefruit character. Refreshing and easy drinking. Purchased at Luke's in Brewster.

Not a great coloring on the body (pale yellow-gold, almost straw colored) but the head and lacing are impressive. Smell is true to a English IPA standards (malt rich) but has a very nice citrusy American aspect to it. Very balanced, and that bleeds into the taste which balances bitterness and sweetness, citrus and earthiness, grass and pine. Feel is more silky and robust than the look would suggest. Quite nice. Up against modern American IPAs I can see this one getting passed over quickly because it's extremely balanced and subtle. But comparing it to more traditional English IPAs I think it's a winner.
