4.08/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Hazy and nearly opaque, allowing only silhouette and shadow to penetrate, but no significant particulate or floaties. Good head production; OK retention and lacing.

Very juicy nose, with a slight preference for tropical fruit hop expression over citrus, along with a light and bright green herbal note. Slightly sweet with touches of cream and honey. Just a hint of caramel from the otherwise undetectable malt base. Pineapple, mango, orange, vanilla, grass.

Fairly light on the palate for a hazy IIPA, if not quite watery. Lively bite; very smooth with high drinkability.

The lightness matches the almost non-existent malt contribution, which is limited to pale biscuit, cracker, and pale grains. Consequently, the juicy hop notes lose impact; there's no sweetness to really round out the profile, but at the same time, it's not a particularly bitter beer. Tasting notes include lemon, papaya, pineapple, blueberry, grass, orange, slight citrus peel, and a very mild dankness.

Pours a hazy light orange with a short lived head and some lacing.

A just opened can smells of piney hops. Once in the glass this smells primarily of citrus.

Just poured it tastes mildly hoppy. As the glass warmed it became more citrusy with a mildly bitter alcohol warm finish.

Medium body and carbonation. Slightly lush mouthfeel.

This is a very pleasant, mild mannered, nuanced, drinkable beer. For me this was a nice introduction to another local Boston area brewery.

A can from 11/20/20. Opened and reviewed on: 12/15/20

Thick and creamy golden liquid. White haze within and sticky white foam cover and lace.

The sweet and tropical fruit punch style hop aroma is fairly bold. Creamy malted grains is interesting, as it reminds me of a much more aromatic cream ale.

The hop layers have a complex fruity sweetness that mutates with every sip. The malt flavor is like a richer cream ale with a soft edges and a hefty body. Peaches and cream, strawberry shortcake and earthy tones round it out nicely.

A very soft and smooth mouthfeel is toward the high end of the New England style spectrum.

This thing is pretty luxurious in many ways, way too easy drink for 8.4%abv.

Grapefruit and other citrus in the taste.

Strong hoppy finish.

Excellent beer!

I look forward to grabbing some of this beer whenever it comes around. This beer is such a hidden gem and if you are able to get your hands on it don’t pass on this one...a must try! A dank New England Style Juice Bomb DIPA.

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 1//3/19.
Look is nice yellow orange haze. Smell is tropical fruit citrus lead. Taste follows nose and stays sweet throughout. Feel is medium. Overall Very nice beer and hides alcohol well, be careful.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Can dated 10/11/18.
Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a nice thickness to it. Small cap of a little white foamy head glided off nicely.
The aroma had a pretty nice blend of sweet Vidalia onions and papaya heavy to tropical fruity character backing up the entire blend pretty darn nice.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a slight underscore of crushed white pepper intertwining with all of the prior mentioned aromas. Shoulders a nice grassy to tobacco leafy aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair dryness rolling around. Subtle crisp leafy hop bitterness breaks with some harshness on my tongue. ABV and carbonation felt good for a New England styled DIPA. Light finish of dried papaya bits, white pepper and sweet onions.
Overall, pretty damn nice New England styled DIPA. I love how it all combined gracefully as it did.

I love walking into my local craft beer store (Craft Beer Cellar Westford in Westford, MA) and finding not just what was listed in their new delivery update on social media but also a few cans of something they didn't even bother posting about. The store only got a case of this and decided against posting it in the update (which included several other sought-after beers), but sold out of it quickly anyway. Pretty sure I got a couple of the last few cans. This batch has a date of 1/18/18, making it just over a week old. Fresh!

Pours a totally turbid milkshake of a beer with the requisite golden-colored body and oat-induced hop-haze. The head is pretty small and slight but it seems to last for a very long time. The surface is covered by swirls of foamy goodness, but overall this doesn't stand out from the crowd. The lace is somewhat spotty overall but the legs here are solid and end up forming dripping compositions of cobwebbed foam, mostly tethered to the head itself, with some breaking off and remaining as part of the original lace. This feels adequate but not spectacular. A solid entry into the super-opaque DIPA catalog.

Heavy with bright and muscular hop notes vying for sensory attention, Double Hop Hop is quite the experience when the glass is first brought up to my nostrils. The first thing I pick up is an unmistakable "dankness" (owing to the Citra/Simcoe hops used) with some light catty notes and chive in the background followed by white grapefruit pith and grapefruit flesh. Light spruce and pine kicks around in the middle there with some resonance of passion fruit and tangerine. This smells super-lean, with no caramel malts or distracting elements to speak of, though I do get some yeastiness and inevitable "doughy" character which seems to result from the starchier grains used (oats/wheat). Overall, this seems quite interesting due to the combination of intense hoppiness, strong yeast/grainy component and grassy/green-leaning complexion in the nose.

On the tongue, this is even more intense in its devotion to the pulpy and grassy, green elements on the nose. Hefty grapefruit, orange, tangerine and pine with strong dank and catty flavors come across here, amplified by the yeasty undertone present. Very juicy feel with some intense bitterness toward the finish to match the malt bill that brings this into "double" territory compared to Hop Hop and Away. Some sweetness on the backend helps keep this fairly balanced overall. There's not much more to say about this beer; if you like bigger NEIPAs, this is a great one that easily stands on a similar level to competitors such as Trillium.
