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

Pours a hazy golden orange with a decent amount of white head.
Citrus notes dominate the nose, some pineapple as well.
Taste follows, orange and grapefruit, pineapple on a nice maly backbone.
Medium bodied.
Overall a tasty beer I'd gladly grab if it were in distro here.

This beer has a perfect two fingers worth of head that is off white/very light orange. The beer itself is hazy and a very nice shade of orange.
The smell is citrus. Oranges, mango, pineapple. Good but a little underwhelming.
The taste is that citrus mix too with a slight bitterness and a detectable but not out of balance malt backbone.
Feeling is thinner for the style but still soft. Wet but doesn't stick around long.
Overall, a solid brew.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Look: orange, small head, almost no lacing, very hazy. Aroma: passion fruit, mango, kiwi, nothing in the realm of perceived bitterness which is odd for a beer the brewery calls an IPA. Taste: very sweet, under attenuated, as fruity as the aroma, and again there is no perceived bitterness. Finish: quick off the palate. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, chewy texture.

Comments: the can calls this beer "Hooey IPA" so I'm reviewing it as an IPA. As such, it is awful. Under attenuation is a brewing flaw, and it should have had bittering hops added to the boil. Its sweetness is off putting. If the brewery had labelled it a New England Ale, or a New England IPA I would haved gone into it expecting something along the lines of a hop flavored wine cooler, and it would have scored well.

Pours a slightly hazed-over orange, with two fingers of head. Billed as being "hopped with a ridiculous amount of the juiciest hops available," but perplexing in the number of different notes that are hitting here. On alternating sniffs and sips, I get everything from orange juice to dank pine resin to grapefruit to lemongrass. Neat trick.

This beer pours a hazy orange with a large head. The aroma features notes of apricot, mango, pineapple, papaya, and sweet pine. The flavor starts with just a mild amount of bitterness, segueing quickly to mango, papaya, pineapple, and apricot, with a slight caramelized feeling to the fruit on the finish. the mouthfeel is fairly light and soft, with lively, small bubble carbonation. Overall this is a wonderful beer with rich and fun flavors and solid balance.

L: It drops gold with a slight haze under a 1" cream colored lacy, persistent foam blanket.

S: Pine and resin aromas lift from the glass supported by light biscuit and bread crumb, some traces of tropical fruit and a hint of pineapple and melon.

T: Tropical fruit, melon and citrus lead to a medium to medium high bitterness that is softened by some biscuit to flaky pie crust.

F: very creamy with fine soft carbonation and a medium body

O: a full flavored, easy to drink and easy to repeat American IPA

About two 1/2 week old can poured into snifter. Murky but not what I’d call hazy per se. slicker looking body than most New England ipas around Boston. Nice meld on nose between juicy notes on hops and golden orange malt body. Juicy as hell and very nice notes of bitterness on the finish. Great beer.
