(had a version of this beer that was dry hopped on El Dorado hops, no additional BA entry so I'll leave this here)

pours clear orange/brown
smell is hoppy and a little fruity
taste is identical to scent notes, little heavier on the bitter and less on the fruity
feel is NEBCO

overall decent IPA, though not one that will keep up with the other East Coast juice bombs coming out, probably would go for something else if there were other choices next time.

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter. Hazy deep orange. Almost no head. Smells very dank. Lightly toasty. Tastes citrusy, tropical, and again very dark. Strong bitterness and toasty malts. Medium body and medium low carbonation. A little intense.

Poured from a 3 day old growler fridged entire time from the brewery into a New England Brewing Co. glass.

Great peach glowing orange body, solid and with a nice hint of shine to it. Head is creamy and makes about two fingers, settling to nice amounts of ring lacing, with even pin head bubble sizes throughout.

Aroma seems a little dead. Mild sensing bitter pine needles, though but very subtle. A bit of citrus orange sweetness seems to peak out as well. Not much distinct malt character.

Palate is pretty solid if not mindblowing. Solid if simple mouthfeel giving an almost mouthwash consistency. Mid palate manages fairly neutral hop bitterness sticking with traditional simple pine and some soily earth flavors. Aftertaste really lingers, and manages to get some herbal and mint like qualities also.

Not bad, pretty solid for the IPA realm.
