A clear DIPA that delivers a delicious combo of citra and mosaic hops. Dangerously quaffable at 9% abv. A must-get whenever offered.

Look: This pours a somewhat decent orange beer that you can see through it clearly.
Smell: Hops as the main smell with lesser notes of fruits, primarily oranges.
Taste: Try and guess following the consistency... Oranges! A mouthful of this beer leaves me with not much other then that.
Feeling: A fair amount of carbonation without much of a bite from the liquor. This is a pretty enjoyable experience.
Overall: Wasn't my favorite beer but is a solid good beer.

Beer'd is on top of their game with this deliciously crafted malt bomb surging with Mosiac and Citra hops that are a marriage of flavor constructed in heaven. Another smooth high percentage DIPA from a brewery that stands tall and proud in the state of CT. Keep doing what you're doing because it's working really really well.

Pours an amber copper color, filtered with a one finger head with minimal lacing. Smells of sweet sticky hops, berry, floral with some booze on the nose. Taste is citrusy with lots of juicy character, big drying bitterness on the very back end. Crisp, and clear. This beer sets out to be a big hitting citra and mosaic IPA, and that's what it is. Tasty.

So lucky to have Bee'rd and Grey Sail close by. Grey Sail's Captain's Daughter dipa is one of my favorite beers. Dogs and Boats is even better. Purchased from the brewery in 4-pack 16 oz. cans.

Had this on tap at the Foundry in Northampton, MA. The beer had a clear, orange appearance with some thick lacing on the sides. Aromas were balanced in terms of its hop characteristics making it very approachable. I found the beer to be sweet thanks to a fruity citrus. The mouthfeel to this beer was actually quite creamy. Overall, I enjoyed this beer's appearance the most.

Poured into a teku pint. No freshness date.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam.

S- Interesting aroma has floral hop quality but also a somewhat vinegary essence that wasn't expected.

T- Fruity hop flavor with some moderate bitterness. Pretty well-balanced especially for the ABV. Has a bit of a metallic finish which I attribute to the water quality not being quite up to par. Tangy, bright and slightly sweet.

M- Lingering hop bite with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- My first beer from them and it's pretty good. Certainly has its minor flaws but is quite enjoyable overall.
