Pours a hazy amber color with a 1/2 inch fluffy head. Aroma is earthy hops and grain. This is an old school IPA, not to be compared to the current juicy, citrusy NEIPA style. Solid malt backbone supports a forward hoppiness without being overly sweet. I really enjoy this beer, well crafted and reasonably priced. For the money you can't go wrong.

On tap at The Grog in Newburyport #drinklocal. Solid bitter West Coast IPA, pretty good head and nearly amber color. Lacks juiciness of NEIPA

I can't say enough about this IPA. It delivers on taste and price. For a 6 pack under $10 it is a GREAT buy. The taste is unreal and the bite at the end reminds you why you love pussy.

Poured a fairly old (4 months?) 12 oz can of this fine IPA into a pint Spiegelau glass, high and hard to fill it to the top with head. Looks gorgeous, with firm foam settling slowly, leaving persistent lace. Color's a SRM 14, with a strange pearlescent turbidity a little like tiny bubbles. If the "P" in IPA really means Pale, this is darker than that. Still real pretty, though!

Smells like fresh green hop cones, tastes juicy fruits and malts, goes very well with a sourdough pretzel and ripe gooey Camambert.

Mouthfeel's creamy, unctuous, carbonated just right after the vigorous foamy pour.

Aftertaste just a bit timid; could use a bit more bitter hopping. I nearly always think this, though.

I'd be glad to drink more of this. Over the months I've had cans in the fridge, I've been trying not to drink it all at once, and now especially enjoy the way it has aged. IPAs are supposed to age anyway, IMHO, since we know they were invented to get from England to India on slow ships, right?

Had this at the Copper Door restaurant in Salem, NH. The beer had a dark copper appearance with a thin head. Aromas included sharp, piney, spiced hops that followed the taste really well. Mouthfeel was a medium body and decently creamy. Overall, this was pretty good.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a dark copper to amber color with a finger's worth of fairly quick dissipating white foamy head. Lots of clingy foamy lace with one big ring near the top and some messiness below.
The aroma had the maltiness up front coming about like some toast to caramel/toffee malts with a little bit of dirtiness and then some sticky semi-piney hops with some bitterness starting to take over the entire scent.
The flavor was basically the same with a clever little bit of tobacco leaf coming across in a semi-dry sort of sweetness. Aftertaste was tobacco leafy and malty.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with an okay sessionability about it. Carbonation felt a bit stiff, but mostly fine. ABV felt on par. Finish was brisk with some of that tobacco leafiness and the toast with a little bit of pine.
Overall, I almost want to say this is an English IPA, but well, my numbers stand on this one until I hear otherwise.
