Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an orange color with great clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemon, citrus, pine, toasted, biscuity, cracker, and caramel malts.

Taste: Pretty nice hop flavor with nice malt bill, light chewy, and light bitterness. Pretty crushable and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, lightly lightly bitterness, medium carbonation, light to medium bodied, slightly chewy, and crushable.

Overall: Pretty solid IPA. So good that I grabbed a few more.
