Pours a turbid, peach-flesh like color with two and half fingers of white foamy head. Head forms eagerly even out of an 8 day old crowler. Lovely lacing left behind as well. Splendid start to the drinking experience. Aroma is tropical fruits - specifically, papaya, mango, and pineapple with a sweet marmalade note in the back. On the hop spectrum of bitter to sugary sweet, this lands at about a 60% sweet. Not overly so, but just enough to welcome a sip. Flavor profile oozes papaya, mango, pineapple, sweet marmalade, and peaches. Yeast is present, but just barely so, with a dash of biscuit malts in the back. The soft, slightly grainy, calcium-like feeling keeps this beer drinking smooth delivering those wonderful hop notes. It has a medium thickness that fills out the palate well without drinking like a meal. Overall, a sublime NE IPA. Loads of hop notes that remain well balanced. It is a touch sweet, but isn't overly so.

Served in a 12oz snifter from an 8 day old 32oz crowler.

This could be the best NE IPA in the country. Did a taste test against several NE breweries and nothing came close.

Poured from a 16oz can into a nonic pint glass.

Pours an orange-juice looking hazy body with a fluffy white head that reduces to a layer and leaves good chunky lacing.

Straight citrus on the nose, creamy orange creamsicle and dank orange skins. On the tongue it’s a burst of orange creamy dank hop notes sitting on a decent slightly sweet malt backbone. Easy mouthfeel low carbonation.

Quite delicious, reminds me of Julius.
