Not a fan of this IPA at all. Too may hops and way too bitter.

Very hoppy, plenty of bitterness for an ipa fan. Floral scent and hint of orange taste. Very drinkable and no slouch at over 6%. Another strong beer in the New England lineup

This is an amazing IPA that seemed to have gone through a recent transition. from good to GREAT. It's fairly easy to get it super fresh in CT. Gandhi-Bot light? maybe!

Nice appearance with a white frothy head not too much lacing.
Smells floral and piney.
Nice taste with a little bit of bite on the finish.
Very drinkable and could easily drink a few of these in a sitting.

Mostly just bitter. Very little else. Perhaps it is a bit beyond its prime.

Very solid and quaffable IPA. While brewed on the east coast, seems to have more of a west coast hop profile (a plus in my book).
