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.

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

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.

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.

Rich, full flavored and full body, very well balanced, filling but easy drinking, quite enjoyable even if not characterful.

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.

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!

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.

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.
