This should be top 10 ipa. Had in draft at the Greenway beer garden and in a 4 pack from the Congress st Brewery. Got a mixed case and no surprise , they are all incredible.

Can from brewery, package date 4/17/18. Pours a golden, glowing hue; head dissipates quickly, some lacing left behind. Smells of grapefruit.

Taste entry is a perfect balance of carbonation, citrus, and bitterness. Very drinkable — perhaps dangerously so, for a 7.2% ABV! Long finish on tip and middle of tongue. Really nicely done.

Brewery in Canton, MA is worth the trip. Lines are segmented into “pour line” and “can / bottle / growler line,” which keeps things moving. Fort Point location (Boston) sells beer, but not for tasting on premises. Their Boston “Beer Garden,” which I visited in fall ‘17, was a really nice outdoor venue (separate location from Fort Pt.)
