Reminds me a lot of other New England double IPA. The greatness of this beer is the piney smell as well as the hoppiness and long aftertaste. Reminds me of Heady Topper.

Thanks to jlindros for hooking this up (and a bunch of other beers). Pours a hazy yellow with 1/3" white head on the top. Aroma was citrus, didn't pop tropical fruit on this one, just seemed like a hearty dose of Citra hops and maybe just a drop of stone fruit aroma. Doesn't seem to be dry hopped any bigger or better than the big boys out here (Monkish/Cellarmaker/Moonraker/Alvarado/Revision) that make comparable stuff.

Taste is pretty good, more of the orange citrus but it isn't sweet, a little bit of grapefruit. Mouth feel is nice and relatively soft, not too bitter, hides the alcohol very well. Isn't quite as soft as some NEIPAs I've had, but its definitely lower in bitterness than any other style of ipa. Carbonation is on it. Its very drinkable and a pretty easy banger to put down all by oneself in a small amount of time.

The difficult thing for me is trying to understand why the ratings are the way they are. I think its a function of MA not having much in the way of hoppy beer in the 90s and whatnot. There's literally dozens of comparable breweries one state over.

Enjoying from my brand new tulip glass. What a nose - keeps delivering citrus with every swirl. I find it just a bit more bitter on the tongue than expected, but the taste and mouth feel are still great. Overall, certainly a top DIPA!

Poured into a Alchemy 13 oz Teku glass canned 9/12/18. Pours a very hazy dark orange yellow with a massive 2 plus finger head that leaves thin wisps of lace throughout. 4.75

Smell is papaya, mango, tangerine, and mild grapefruit rind. 4.75

Taste follows tropical front to back, with papaya dominating and just mild bitterness from grapefruit but is their. 4.75

Mouthfeel is a solid medium, soft on the palate, a tad sticky, and at 8% goes down insanely easy. 4.75

Overall this lives up to the hype and is a world glass NEDIPA. 4.75
