Notes: A brewery favorite, for a number of reasons! White grape, lemon and grapefruit are key notes in this hazy. The use of honey malt balances out the citrus and bitter hop profile.

16oz can served in a big snifter. Bought it yesterday at the Hop and Hound. Canned on 06/10/20.

Pours murky muddy-amber-yellow with a medium head, collapses leaving big bubbles floating in big clumps clinging to the edges of the glass. Smell is primarily floral, but can't tell exactly what. Maybe honeysuckle. Maybe a little piney resin.

Taste is bitter. Floral characteristics are there, but not dominant. Bitterness comes across maybe as grapefruit zest? Hard to pin this down.

Mouthfeel is resinous, filmy, not sticky. Drying. Overall, it's an interesting beer and I can't quite decide if it's really good or just run-of-the-mill in terms of enjoyment, but it's interesting enough I'll give it some benefit of the doubt.

A: The beer is very hazy brownish yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of green grapes are present in the nose along with notes of grapefruit.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel hops, grapefruit, green grapes, and gooseberries along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be maltier compared to other New England-style IPAs but is super hazy and still rather juicy.
