I don't get this beer, a malt driven IPA that tasted old and stale (drank from can 1.5 weeks after canning). The hops were not well executed. I will not be trying this one again.

12oz can into an Alchemist stemless teku.

Nose is pine, citrus and cane sugar. Aromatic with a resiny hop bitter bite. Beer opens citrus, pine, grass and a yeasty, resiny bitterness. There's a rounded malt presence that mellows out and balances this one. Body is medium with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth on the palate and goes down silky and a little oily. Accented going down with a bone dry aftertaste.

The body is what stands out about this beer. Super smooth and drinkable.

New England Brewing just keeps bringing the goods. Had this from a can poured into snifter, from the most recent canning release in March. Look is spot on for the style..golden/amber with some very nice lacing. Smell is spot on for a heavily hopped Nelson double IPA. Tastes very smooth and similar to a top tier Vermont double IPA. Hops dont come out and bite, it's surprisingly very easy to drink for a double. This is probably my 3rd favorite double IPA from New England. That's saying something. Cheers!
