On tap at The Inishmor. Pours a turbid burnt orange color with very little head. Some lacing. Nice aroma of tropical fruits along with some piney hops. The taste is where you get more of the piney hops but there is still some fleshy mango and tangerine. Piney, herbal finish. Heavy mouthfeel. Moderate alcohol burn. Actually tastes more boozey than I expected for the ABV. Overall, solid IPA I'd buy once in a while.

An orangy-hazy goblet of beer with a 1 inch bright white head fading to skim.
Aroma is big time dank hops, catty, citrussy, ...maybe some pine notes.
Taste is all sorts of citrus chewiness . SO good. Nicely balanced on the tongue.
So far my favorite beer from this brewery.

16 oz can traded in from brutalfarce!

Really dark murky pour here. Lots of darkened yellows, almost mustard or cumin powder-like. There is a slight brightness but it's still intensely dense. Head is creamy at 1 finger, recedes a bit but still leaves nice ripples of cotton on top.

Aroma has bright nectarines and slight sweaty peach, slight smooth wafts of banana and apple, and faint grapefruit acidity.

Starting off with a brief wave of earthiness, the beer builds on this base with notes of pine, tea, sweet orange, sweet grapefruit, clementine, wet grass, and faint wet garden. I'm picking up lots of mango the more I let it sit on the palate. A dank, dirty, spicy mango flavor. Very nice development.

Feel is electric with carbonation, yet still impeccably creamy, with very welcoming resins that coat the tongue and leave residue to socialize on the roof after the main event. Nice oiliness, slight alcohol heat.

Overall, this beer is a really great representation of what a NE IPA should be. Pretty good stuff. A touch overly earthy and resiny for me, but that's not all-bad. Definitely try it if given the chance.

Smell is unbelievable. Floral and fruity and hoppy. Taste leaves a little to be desired. I enjoyed the thinner feel and am impressed they packed all this in with a 6percent alcohol content. I would recommend this beer.

On tap at Prime 16: Pours a cloudy red orange with a thin cap of lacing that leaves traces of lacing. Aromatically citrus. Citrus and tangerine. Very nicely balanced. Yumy.

this says English ipa but I don't agree at all. nice tropical nose with hazy look. taste is piney with fruit flavors following at the end palate. very nice beer but mouthfeel is rather thin. english ipa tend to be grass and dirt and this is definitely not. get it if you can. this is good.

Poured from a pint can into an IPA style glass. Small head, minimal lacing. Body is the color of peach nectar, very hazy. Mild fruit aroma on the nose. First sip reveals delicious citrusy flavor with a mild hops finish, minimal bitterness. Great mouth feel, easy drinking with a well hidden 6.2% abv.
