you can tastes the hops is it red hot? this is a white labeled beaut. the bottle looks cool and its nice and dry and fuckin crisp. its even got a little salt in the after birth. splitting this delight between two adventureers after a 430 smoke mesh is best. taste is I'm proved by drinking from a coffee mug. since you don't need to see what it looks like ins the the label on says what it looks like when in glass glassware. its good . this maybe should b a PSA for not writing beer reviews when your stoned. but maybe its the best thing to do on right now. ok i gotta go my room mate is playing the harry potter theme on his martini. good beer though.

This is my kind of IPA. Light in color, medium in body with the right combo of hops. A little citrus, a little pine, a little grass and just a hint of malts to hold everything together.

Had this on draft at the Pickle Jar in downtown Falmouth, Ma. It poured a pale yellow orange with a slight hoppy nose with some floral hints. Nothing really jumps out in the first taste a nice blend of the hops and the malt. A smooth drinking IPA. I'd probably order it again.

Pours a mostly clear golden color with white head. Pine, grass, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a slight hop bite.

This is a number one beer.
It pours a medium head. Great orange colour. Very hoppy and bitter but balanced by a good amount of malt. Loved its crispiness. Nice hoppy finish.
Will have more of it.

Bought a six-pack at Table and Vine in West Springfield, MA. Served in a goblet. The beer poured with a medium head and patchy lacing on the sides. The drink has a murky gold-orange appearance. Really zesty citrus smells with earthy/grassy tones. Bittersweet aftertaste with a mixture of lemon and orange flavors. Really good carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good IPA.
