Pale opaque yellow with a really stubborn laced white foamy head. Nose is fruity in a more berry style, floral in a subtle and sweet way and maybe it has a touch of pine. Taste is berry sweet up front with a bit of dandelion, while finishing with a solid and dry, slightly dank bitter. Body is shockingly thin and in no way does this beer offer a hint of a high ABV.

Poured from a 32long neck growler (filled 2-21-2017) into a Veil Brewing house glass.

Appear: light golden beautiful haze. nice half fingers worth of head. really tasty looking.

Nose: really nice mix of fruit and dank. fruits are tropical mango pineapple theres some citrus pith. the dankness is a little pine maybe a little herbs.

Taste: taste is awesome. The flavors really follow the nose. tropical and citrus fruits that blend really nicely with the piney herbal note. the citrus is a little sweet on the palate but in a really nice way.

Mouth: nice medium thin Not a creamy silky smooth as some other NE IPAs but it's not too bad. no hint of 8%. really crushable.

Over: First brew from the Answer. Solid NE style IPA. I'm digging it alot. super crushable. flavors all play off each other nicely. Could be a little better in the mouth. but its really crushable.
