Although this is listed as 'retired' on BA, it appears that it's being brewed again, with the new release issued in pint cans, featuring the redesigned logo. I poured mine from a one pint can into a pint glass. Nice white head which has staying power. Very light amber hazy body. Fruity nose, lots of citrus. According to the label this DIPA has Citra, Simcoe, Centennial & Experimental 432 hop varieties; they combine well for flavor. The first sip has lots of citrus, mostly grapefruit on my palate, with some mild bitterness on the back end and a well hidden 8.50% abv. I enjoyed and will get it again.

Appearance – Hazy yellow body with a one finger head.

Aroma – Pine sap, light grapefruit pith, somewhat sweet.

Taste – Strong bitter flash, mostly pine hops and a long bitter finish. All about the hops.

Mouthfeel – Smooth and creamy, very nice in a DIPA.

Overall – A good beer but the flavor is almost all bitterness, not much malt character. One dimensional.

Cloudy gold color. Small head but, initially, there's a nice blanket of lace.

True to the New England IPA roots--cloudy, semisweet, and we'll balanced with a floral hop and a deep pale malt presence.

The taste is more bitter than the smell. The body is above the norm while the carbonation is neutral. The swallow and aftertaste are like black pepper in terms of bitterness. A touch of sweetness overall.
