From a can, stamped less than two weeks ago, into a nonic pint. Thin head. Fine bubbles. Ringing the glass after sips. Plenty of bitter up front, middle and end. Needs to warm up a bit. All im getting is bitter andsmooth malty spring water. (My fridge is too cold) a solid ipa with old school sensibilities. As jim leahey wud say “Right in the pocket.” If you likes em bitter... this is for you.

From the 12 fl. oz. can dated 08/29/18. Sampled on September 3, 2018.

It pours a light amber tone with a slight haze or unfiltered appearance under a modest white foamy head that fades.

Pleasant inviting aroma of breaded malts, toffee, and floral characters, Decently balanced on the nose.

Light to medium body.

In many respects this is a traditional IPA with a well-balanced character of sweet bready malts and floral hops. It ends clean and crisp. Easy drinking and not over the top with hops.

Classic and modern IPA, not only dependable, but satisfying and full of flavor. This beer’s reputation and drinkability will withstand the shifting tastes of IPA drinkers to come.

Hazy golden color with a substantial off-white head. Resiny hops with abundant citrus notes, too, on the nose.

The citrus notes are more prominent on the taste, and there’s a very nice malt component, too. Just a really well-executed IPA, IMHO.

Poured cold from a 12-ounce can into a stemless wine glass. Canned 7/11/18. Hazy amber color, with a two-finger white head that left behind some spotty lacing as it settled to a thick cap.. Nicely balanced on the aroma and palate. Big hit of pine and spruce on the nose at first, almost like a Christmas tree in a glass. The light caramelly malt then comes to the fore, along with a little orange, grapefruit, citrus zest, and a sweet floral overtone. Pleasant bitterness, a medium mouthfeel, and a mostly dry and slightly astringent finish round out the profile. Overall, a very good and highly drinkable beer.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus and pine. The taste matches the nose.

22 oz can poured into a speigelau ipa glass canned on 4/24

A: big Soapy white head with big bubbles that laces the glass nicely as it recedes. Body is a light amber burnished gold with just a slight haziness.

S: lots of grapefruit and tangerine interlaced with melon and lemon and grass with a solid light caramel malt running throughout.

T: a lot less flavor than the nose would suggest. Everything is very muted. Light bits of orange tangerine with very light melon and a little maltiness.

M: medium bodied decent carbonation nice body for an IPA.

O: This is an odd beer, it’s like everything was dialed down to 0 in the flavor but the nose absolutely pops. Actually the more I drink it the more I’m enjoying it. It’s a nice beer.

A very solid local IPA , is it the best no from CT but definitely top 10 id say. Has a great strong flavor but not overbearing, a heavier beer but doesnt fill you up like a full meal. Worth a try if your a fan of smooth IPA's.
