500ml can: This one pours a hazy, orangish color. Big foamy head that leaves some lacing. Good nose. Orange, pineapple and other citrus aromas. The taste is good. Juicy IPA. Orange, pineapple, other fruits with some pine notes also. Somewhat bitter. A nice brew!

From the 16 oz. can. Sampled on July 15, 2017.

The pour is a very juicy, murky looking orange-amber with a long lasting off-white head. Some lacing. Nearly opaque.

The aroma emits an extraordinary grapefruit and pineapple tropical fruitiness above anything else. Some muted white bread below.

The body is medium, pulpy, and reasonably smooth.

The taste is juicy to the tilt with grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine playing up big in the flavor. Fruity bitter bite at the finish. Here is a brewery outside of New England that has figured out the New England IPA style.

Pours light hazy, orange. Thick, medium, off white head that lasts a while with lacing.

Smells tropical, peach, grapefruit and malt.

Tastes grapefruit, candied fruit, tropical, orange peel and pepper. Finish is dry with pine linger. Medium body and creamy, light fizzy medium carbonation.

16 oz can dated 04/26/17 (2 1/2 months old)

Pours a very hazy orange gold color with a 2 finger large bubble head that retains well and laces thickly

Aroma is papaya with stone fruit notes and a little maltiness thrown in.

Taste has a distinctive malt flavor firmly sitting behind a fruity caramel flavor. While I applaud the candied hops I think that the malt intrudes too much. This may be my bias having consumed too many low-malt northeast "hazies" in the last year, but the malt feels like it muddies the delicate hop flavor. Crazy because I wouldn't have thought this just a few years ago.

Feel is not sticky, a bit clean and little smooth.

This is a good beer but the malt interferes with the delicious hop flavor concocted here, serving as an anchor to what otherwise would float free. Some may not care much about that but I do. The times are changing I think.

I would recommend it. Tasty! A little pricey for a 6.8

Beautiful hazy orange-yellow pour with a cap of white that settles down to a somewhat sticky half finger. Aromas are bright tropical fruits with a bready malt showing through. Flavor is much the same. Delicious juicy hops balanced well by a breadiness that's superb. Very enjoyable, never a biting bitter, smooth throughout.
