Hazy gold with a moderate fluffy white froth leaving some sticky, wavy lace.

Smell is pungent and sticky dank peach, cat piss with Sweet Tarts and grapefruit rind.

Taste is dank and overripe peach with grapefruit and a bitter piney swallow. At times I get dredged up memories of Sunny D.

Feel is soft and frothy with a semi-dry finish.

Four pack copped in Barnstable. Pours a copper ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Astringent flavor.

L- Light colored beer with a half-fingered bubbly head. Hazy, straw golden color to be exact. Bubbly. Fine looking beer.
S- Spicy, peppery, piney hops are extremely up front and present. Tangy and slightly floral with a boozy finish. Extremely sweet and well structured.
T- Genuinely subdued in the best way. This beer is deliciously flavored and delicately crafted. A fresh meld of citrus, floral flavors, spice, and a hop smack.
F- Thicker than expected, dry result.
O- Wonderful IPA. Floral, hoppy, slightly spicy, complex yet subdued "American IPA". A pure pleasure to drink.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed what has become a fridge beer for me. I love close enough to a great packy that gets this fresh and regularly. I'm giving this one high marks as it is a regular and easy to obtain - that counts for a lot.

Really pretty golden beer with the lacing you want from a fulbodied ipa. I don't consider this one a "New England" IPA - its zesty citrus and resin lick on the taste slap just enough bitter on this not so cloudy brew. It drinks slick with the body giving just enough sticky balance to have both sweet and bitter left on the longer

A: pours a pretty, hazy gold with a frothy white head, nice but unremarkable
S: wonderfully zesty, piney and pungent aroma, juicy, filled with grapefruit and citrus
T: nice clean malt body with pleasant citrusy notes and a decently strong bitterness, it's good
M: a decently syrupy and full body, with a bitterness leaving a dryness in the mouth
O: it's very good, but not original and not great, but I would try more from them if given the chance
