look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Slightly hazy golden pour with fruity aroma - orange, grapefruit with mildly piney resinous undertones. Taste is of piney citrus mixture - bitterness early which lingers somewhat. Overall a decent New England IPA, though short of being great.

Lovely looking colourful 355ml can here.

Pours a hazy tangerine/peach colour with a bright white head that faded rather quick. Nice.

Burnt toffee at first on the nose followed by some dank hop notes, orange peel, lemon/lime. A little more astringent on the nose than I expected: it even burns the nostrils a little. Not quite as fruit forward as I thought it might be, but still nice enough.

Apricots, orange peel and lots of burnt toffee right away on the tongue, followed by some considerable dankness and dryness. Again a little too mouth puckering for the style, imo. Tasty enough though.

Carbonation is just right, warms the insides quickly. I wouldn't reach for another just yet, but it's still a tasty beer. I guess I was expecting a little more sweetness from this.

355ml can - the name sez it all, but I'll always have a soft spot for old-school Simpsons' references.

This beer pours a rather hazy, yet bright medium orange-tinted yellow colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, rocky, and chunky off-white head, which leaves some decent layered sudsy cirrus cloud pattern lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of pith-heavy orange and red grapefruit juice, some prominent earthy chalkiness, gritty and grainy pale malt, a hint of wheaten cereal, and some plain leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy pale malt, a still understated wheaty graininess, unflavoured Pez candies, muddled domestic citrus flesh, and more leafy, herbal, and wet pine needle verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its structurally supportive frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and mostly smooth, just a bit of that citrus acridity taking things down a minor notch here. It finishes off-dry, the fruity and malty essences outweighing any lingering bitterness.

Overall, this is a well-rendered version of this sub-style of a style (huh?), with an appropriate appearance that leads right into those citrusy, forest floor detritus, and wet stone essences that I have come to associate with it. Enjoyable, and easy to put back, even with the extra point and a half of the ol' wowee sauce.
