When a beer is superb, my eyes tend to close to better experience great flavor. This one is an eye-closer. Looks so much like hazy, citrus juice in the glass, you almost expect to encounter pulp. Multiple hop flavors come at you in succession, including a long, luxurious pine run out that doesn't quit. Brilliant!

CAN
Cloudy apricot; mashed mango + Sunny D; tangerine, mango juice, and huge ringing candied orange that goes skunky + herbal in little flashed; soft + long.

4 4 4.5 4.25 4.5

Mosaic, El Dorado, Simcoe, Falconer's Flight, and Columbus

Intense without any harshness. Mad depth with no burn. All the New Englandness. Name fits; lots of little echoes. Behold, the quality.

Hints of pine with slightly more prevelant notes of lemon and mango.

Opaque, light yellow. Pour leaves a foamy layer which decreases to a thin layer after a mintue or two. Traces of the foam cling to the glass.

Medium-bodied and crisp. Moderate amount of carbonation.

Complex in smell and the taste. Don't really taste the alchohol so it sneaks up on you. The pine adds a little bite, and is a good substitute for hoppy bitterness .

Canned 3/16/18; drank 4/27/18 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque bright orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big white head; strong, thick lace.

Lemon, wheat & faint pine notes in the nose.

Medium thick, sticky mouthfeel.

Marmalade, wheat & pine flavors; a cloying, dry IPA.

Drinkable, but not much more.
