Had this on tap at the Barking Dog Ale House in Haverhill, MA. The beer had a very murky orange appearance with no head. The aromas were strongly of orange juice but i could sense some lemon citrus. Very sweet and tangy, like orange juice, in flavor. This was a very crisp, carbonated beer; extremely refreshing. Overall, a great beer to have with a meal thanks to its incredible mouthfeel.

Hazy and juicy, with a hint of mango in the after taste. Moderate aroma. No hoppy bite to the finish. Very "New-Englandy" style.

-pale yellow tap pour with a deep haze and a sugar-tangerine nose. There is a very fine foam cap and lacing. The flavor is orange-mango with low hop bitterness. This is a tasty IPA.

A: The beer is rather hazy light yellow in color and poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of mangos are present in the nose along with hints of stone fruit.
T: Stronger flavors of honeydew melon, mango and stone fruit are present in the taste. No bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is present.
O: This beer is very "juicy" and has no traces of bitterness whatsoever, making it a classic New England-style IPA.
