I'm a new englander and used to the hop bombs. This one is very nicely balanced. Great hop forward smell and taste with just the right amount of malt backbone. Thanks to Jwag1185 for hooking me up. Overall a great ipa that I would definitely like to drink again. Well done!

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Canned April 21st 2015.

Deep golden orange body, fairly clear looking body, with slow rising carbonation. Head manages off tan and fluffy to creamy retention, standing about three fingers tall with pill like lacing, and island creamy top in the middle. Good looking IPA.

Nice mixed hop aroma. Hints of tropical orange and citrus, nice oily and zesty. A real smokey and weedy mix in the background as well with a hop angle. Juicy and smokey a real fun combination for a hop bouquet. Not particularly sweet or bitter either, very impressive.

Palate really sings and gets the basics just perfectly. Great hop forward front juiced angle. Hits of smoke and earth fruit, hints citrus to tropical with big juice filling palate. Washes real juicy on the finish, with a smoke pop finish and lots of earth pine action. Excellent hop play and balance, even some residual sweetness comes out so subtly on the finish as well.

Fantastic IPA, really well done, one that isn't overboard either but just keeps itself in check and control. Excellent brew.

Can dated 3/31:
Pours hazy orange-golden, visible bubbles rising from nucleated glass. Fluffy white head builds up with a vigor pour and lasts long into the drink. Lacing is significant.
Nose is fruity, classic citrus/tropical notes overall. There is a hint of alcohol in the nose also. Little wet grain as well as a strange menthol-like smell is detected.
Opening taste is pretty clean on the grain, but has a medium-full feel from the get go. Hop forward for sure, pine and grass combined about evenly with grapefruit, tangerine, melon notes. Alcohol and light wintergreen flavors join the party later. End taste isn't too dry despite bitter beginning, maybe even a little slick.
A strange IPA that actually seems to lose a little with warmth, as the alcohol comes on stronger and the fruity aroma fades (and it's <8%). I had to knock my original rating a tad for this, but still rated it highly.
