12 oz. can

Pours foggy hazy gold with a frothy white foam head. Smells like bready caramelized malts, floral grass, red grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, sweet guava, with earthy herbal resinous pine. Tastes like butterscotch, caramel malts, floral grass, grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, guava, with bitter earthy herbal resinous pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.

This beer is available just about everywhere in Connecticut. The color is a hazy orange and smells like a bit of citrus although not overpowering. I detect a small aftertaste. Not too heavy on the tongue. The colder it is the less you don't noticed the hops. At room temperature I like it better. I prefer that heavy hops taste. This is mild but still enjoyable.

Dark orange color with 1 finger head that lingers a while. Aroma- sticky pine and some citrus fruity aromas. Some grapefruit and orange and a lemon pledge. Taste- has more of a spicy herbaceous hop presence here. Some considerable bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel- coated tingling. Overall the taste is not what I am looking for in my ipas.

Delicious IPA. Smells like weed. I like IPAs that smell like weed.
