Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Kappy's in Norwell for about fourteen dollars. Have heard of this brewery before, but never tried. Pretty solid brew, will look forward to trying their other brews.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: light cloudy golden color with a 4F head in a Spiegelau IPA glass. Excellent head retention.

Aroma: not as strong as expected with Citra. Light citrus and rye.

MF: the body is a bit too light for the style. Carbonation is moderate.

Taste: excellent,especially with warming. Robust citrus, some rye, toffee.

Overall: excllent beer. The aroma needs some tweaking and the body could be a bit fuller. Otherwise, enjoyable to drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On-tap 6/16/2016 at the brewpub in Hudson, MA served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep orange/amber color, with a large 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 flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

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

Tap at the brewery.

Hazy orange tangerine color, creamy thick head

Nose big juicy tangerine orange, creamy orange but dank resin and lots of pith rind and little pine

Taste brings big malt base, little creamy, mild sweet, Grapefruit and touch of pineapple, plenty of creamy orange tangerine and some musty resin notes, more pith and orange rind, fair bitterness.

Mouth thicker bod, decent carb.

Not sure how an IPA can look better. Golden orange, unfiltered, with a proper head. Pleasant hop aromas, well-balanced flavor, and smooth as it comes. The rye is a really nice addition and truly stands out. Spicy but not overwhelming. Tropical fruit but not astringent. And this beer is hoppy but not a hop bomb. A welcome change from the one-sides IPAs so common these days.
