1 can from Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury. Poured into a pint glass 3 weeks later. Nice head and super murky. Pleasant drinkability.

Pours opaque, kinda like the color of orange-grapefruit juice, with a finger or so of fluffy white head... Has a creamy citrus character suggestive of both white grapefruit and mild orange - doesn't get too sweet - actually has a dry, almost chalky vibe that I really dig... Malts show up, too, with an earthy, grainy undertone bringing something herbal and floral to the mix... soft and smooth, amply carbonated, mildly bitter, and really enjoyable... 10/3/18 canning...

Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy yellow with a billowy white head.

Aroma is bitter astrigent lemon.

Taste matches aroma, lots of citrus but not overall bitter.

Excellent beer.

A: The beer is very cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that quickly settled down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of orange and grapefruit citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell in that it starts off with citrusy flavors but these are followed by strong notes of pine towards the finish. Only a faint amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat "juicy" on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With a lack of bitterness and a juicy mouthfeel, this is a nice representation of a New England-style IPA. I liked how the flavors in the taste transitioned from citrus to pine.

Serving type: can

Pours a very hazed gold with a thumb+ of rocky ivory colored head. Pretty nice head retention & lacing

S: Orange rind

T: Orange, tangerine & a little bready dryness up front. Grapefruit, dryness & a little tangerine as this warms, just a kiss of pine too. Finishes dry with grapefruit, pine & dryness

Medium body, moderate carbonation, good balance

Super drinkable hazy IPA, much to love here
