Easy drinking with a great hop profile, the word crushable comes to mind.

Hoppy but not as smooth as I would like. But a great choice when it's on tap.

Sea Hag is one of those ipa's you either love or don't. Not bad overall. I can easily see why it would be a nice goto when available. But for me, I'm glad I got a can to try but I'll pass on it next time.

I picked up a six pack of this on a whim and I wish I grabbed more!
A: Hazy orange like copper color. Foamy white head.
S: Notes of floral aromas, some piney hop notes, a hint of malty sweetness combined with citrusy notes.
T: Tastes similar to the nose. Has a nice balance between malty sweetness with citrusy/piney hops. Has a nice dry/slight bitter finish.
M: Medium carbonation, dry finish, well balanced beer.
O: This will be my go to IPA in the future and for the price it's a home run! Well done NEBCo!
