I had this on-tap in a big pint glass at the Beer Works in Logan airport.

Appearance: medium orange hue with plenty of haze and a moderate effervescence. The head is a very thin layer of white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: sweet and citrusy hops are strong up front. Very Cascade-smelling; I like it.

Taste: bright and citrusy hops dominate the flavor; there's not much room for anything else. Bitterness is pretty raspy, but this is a pretty serviceable IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation yields a surprisingly large and satisfying creaminess. I sure wasn't expecting that -- Great!

Overall: a bright and bitey IPA with a stylistically weird but personally satisfying creaminess. I'd go for this again.
