Found at "Plan B" in mIlford, Connecticut this DIPA shows a pretty reddish amber color along with a modest off-white head and tremendous sheets of lacing. The aroma is caramel booze with a slight grass hop. The taste brings a malty caramel-toffee with mild vanilla and herbal hop ideas. Booziness distracts in my opinion. It's medium bodied with minor carbonation. Midland feel. Decent, a little boozy more than tasty.

12 oz can from local speciality beer store. Canned on date on the bottom.
Pours a very nice, light copper red color. A starfish red color head lingers for quite a while. Has a fresh, sweet hoppy smell, very nice. Good finish on the hops, washes down easily.
Overall a very nice beer, one of the better, and stronger, red ales I'm aware of.
