look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a tap at Fleming’s Steak House in Boston, Massachusetts into a footed Pilsner Glass.
A: Pours a hazy, amber color with a one inch, foamy head, fair retention, and very solid rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of pitted (peach) and tropical (mango) fruit predominate, with some pepper and pine notes.
T: Tastes of caramel malt offset by pepper less than pine. Bitterness strong consistent with the New England style.
M: Medium bodied, persistent carbonation, Slightly bitter aftertaste.
O: A solidly organized, New England style IPA. Would not hesitate to have it again.

Light amber color and reasonably clear. A very solid ring appears after each sip.

Fruity smell with a hop balance that does NOT come across as bitter or peppery.

The flavor is full with a sweetness and a creaminess that is rare for beer. Furthermore, the hop is spicy and bitter without being dominant. Easy to drink, could this be the perfect neutral beer that is still flavorful? A great beer to "go to".

Toffee, Rind, Fruity, Leafy

In a world of IPAs, Entitled without a doubt sets itself apart from the pack. First off there is balance, but with that is an impressive level of flavor from both the malt and hops. The use of wheat and honey malt builds a great foundation that holds up well against the aggressive hop character. Warming, bitter and bready in the finish. A very well put together Northeast-style IPA.

From bottle to pint glass.

Smells of sweet malt right off the bat, odd for an IPA.
Beautiful amber color with a creamy white head.
Slightly cloudy.

Smells again of malt, I dont detect much hops.

Tastes full bodied, a light hoppiness in the taste but this beer goes down smooooth. Very easy to drink.
A tad on the sweet side, I wish they added another Hop variety to add balance, bringing the hop profile up a bit more.

More malt than hops but I like it, just not sure I would call this an IPA.

A- Slim 12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass with a slightly hazy golden-apricot body. The cap forms to one finger high with a frothy-foamy consistency and decent retention. Several thick sheets of lacing make residence on my glass.

S- Citrus hops, medium Crystal malts and a bready pale barley backdrop. A bit toasted as the color might suggest. Heavy notes of bitter oranges. The caramelized malts combine with the hops to give off a candied-fruit feel.

T- Tropical and stone fruits come out a bit more here which is kind of the opposite of what I am used to do but I'll roll with it. They join the sharp, bitter orange citrus which is the most prevalent flavor in the beer for me. Orange, grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, pine resin and earthy hop tones. Plenty of maltiness with medium caramelized sugars, a touch of toast and a heavy sweetness in the finish.

MF- Approaches heavy bodied with a smooth and creamy texture. Slick and oily sweetness and medium-high carbonation. Finishes with an aggressive citrus zest bitterness lingering on the taste buds. Slight alcohol warming.

Bitter-orange and citrus hops lead the way with a backing of sweet, medium caramel malts. Bold but also a brute with the toasted grains clashing against the resinous, zesty hops.

This brewer has nailed the IPA as far as I'm concerned. This is my new favorite beer. A nice balance of flavor, looks great in the glass. Nice hoppy flavor without feeling like you're inhaling the hops. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Pours a big creamy almost 2 finger head that fades slowly, nice thick lacing, mostly clear slight hazed honey orange color.

Nose brings a malty character, a little aged ipa perhaps, but no date and purchased recently, but could be the big malt profile, sweet candy like malt, little caramel toasty reddish, with candied orange peel, a little candied stone fruit, mild grassy peppery hop character in the background, floral notes, seems like it's a bit old maybe I should review it again sometime.

Taste continues, ale flavors, with a candy reddish malt sweetness, little caramel notes, toasty, into candied hops, candied straight hop flavor with orange peel and fruity flavors, little grassy spicy note, earthy chewy hop in the back end, with little mineral water profile I think. Finish is sticky syrupy, big spicy hop lingering, candied orange peel, hint booze note.

Mouth is med to a bit heavier syrupy bod, decent carb, hint of booze.

Overall eh, either it's an older IPA that I need to retry fresh, or it's a mediocre IPA. I'll redo it when I get the chance.

Bought this IPA while on a trip to the cape last weekend. A typical Malt forward type of IPA. Lots of malt in the nose not a lot of hops. The taste still brought the malt forward style but with hints of citrus and a little piney after taste. Don't think I'd hunt down another six pack of this. But a drinkable IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle, bottled on 8/3/15
A:Amber to a bit lighter, 2 fingers of white frothy head. A bit of haze.
S: Way too much caramel sweetness. Outside of some mild mango and citrus very reminiscent of the style of IPA that has since fallen out of favor in NE
T: Very sweet, not much bitterness, some honeysuckle and tropical fruit. Hops taste old and a bit oxidized. Would have guessed this beer was much more than a week old.
F: Sticky sweetness, nice level of carbonation
O: Not particularly impressive, but far from undrinkable. Reminds me a bit of a bottle of Limbo that's sat on a shelf for way too long. A bit dated iteration of a style with a modern hop update.

Not my favorite beer, was expecting a bit more. Nice color and nice head to it, smelled pretty decent. Best thing i can say is that this beer had a smooth finish.

Wow, I thought it was a nice IPA. I'm surprised by how well rated this one is. Didn't seem like anything special to me, although it was probably quite fresh and had a really nice aroma.

On-tap 7/5/2015 at Pour Farm in New Bedford, MA served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops presence comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid IPA to drink for a long time.

Had this while doing trivia in Braintree. This beer is amazing. However I finished 2nd last in trivia, and clearly this beer is to blame. Do you know the last President to sport a mustache ? Yeah, neither did I , while having 3 of these perfect IPAs. Great stuff. Trivia sucks

Very fortunate to try this amazing IPA on my visit back east. Living in the land of Lagunitas, Russian River and Bear Republic, it is nice to see and taste a solid eastcoast IPA.
Great rich color. Nice aromas. Well balanced. Super hoppy in just the right way.

Keep up the good work!!

On draft poured into a pint glass. Pours golden orange with a one finger white head that provides great lacing. Nose is big tropical fruit/citrus flavors. Taste is the same with just enough malt to balance things out. Mild bitterness for an ipa. Very easy to drink. Great to see a local brewery off to a phenomenal start. Can't wait to taste what these guys put out next.

This beer has a big tropical fruit nose as soon as u fill the glass. Once it hits your tongue you get a bitter hop burst followed by Mango, papaya and citrus. It finishes crisp and clean with not an overpowering Malt blast. Great big beer that is extremely easy drinking.

Entitled has evolved. Finally released as it's own, it screams Ipa. Rich golden amber color, the aroma is permeated with tropical notes, A nice change from the piney citrus we are used to on the East Coast. Well balanced. This beer is well done. A bit dangerous at 7%+ but very good. Hope to see more from these guys down the road. Finally a beer the South Shore can call their own! Hey, we are all Entitled to a good IPA!

Had this at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth during their launch party tonight. Awesome turnout. Beer was served in a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with good vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Awesome lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tropical melon, pineapple, floral, herbal, grassy, and citrus hops followed by pale and bready malts.

Taste: Same as above with the hops not as flavorful as I smelled, but still the characteristics are still therewith the malts to back it up. Mild tingly bitterness in the rear too.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and mild lingering bitterness in the rear.

Overall: Pretty nice brew. The general consensus of people tonight liked it to. Expect to see more of this beer in the area soon. Great job guys. I'll be enjoying more of this in the near future.
