A- Deep orange apricot. Normal to slightly more than normal head.

S- Mostly citrusy hops with a tiny bit of piney hop punching through. Pretty well balanced

T- 10 minutes out of the fridge it's a good mix of fruity and piney hops that are draped over a medium malt body. Excellent balancing bitterness that dares you to take another sip. Very difficult to actually break down the individual flavors because everything is so well blended. Definitely fruity and flavorful!

M- Medium carbonation, medium body. As to be expected from New England IPAs

O- I was really pleasantly surprised by this one. I see so many new MA breweries now that are just kind of whatever. IPA is an easy style to brew and everybody and their mom makes an IPA these days, so it's refreshing when I find a brewery that makes something a notch above the rest. Absolutely worth picking up a 6pk to try out!

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Darker Amber color and hazy with a thick beige head.

Smell: Light hops and citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine notes with a hint of citrus.

Overall: It looked a lot stronger than it was, but still a good IPA.

Wow. What an amazing beer. Took us by surprise. Had it on tap at a small restaurant in Boston. Great hops profile. Vey smooth. Low bitterness. Well balanced.

Good beer.. Might be higher rated.. I need to have it more times to have a definitive judgement on it.. But I like what I'm tasting ..
