L: bright but very hazy, typical turbid narrow gauge/NE ipa look
S: Juicy and sweet tropical fruit
T: nice citrus, mellow compared to a double ipa, but crazy good for an apa!
F: thick for the style, oh so crushable and smooth.
O: the best pale ale I've ever had!

Pour from a crowler dated 1/10/17: Body pours a super hazy golden pale color, nice frothy head that leaves solid amount of lacing. Medium pine on the nose, some underlying tropical juiciness of mango and white peach, quite enjoyable. Smooth creamy mouth feel (as to be expected from a NE IPA/PA), some bitterness on the back end, but doesn't linger. Bright up front. This is a tasty brew.

Pours a dark pale yellow with some haze to it. A finger of white head sits on top with good retention and great lacing. Aroma hits with malts first - biscuit, and bread. Hop notes nail straight-up citrus in the aroma. Flavor profile provides and immediately dose of citrus and orange to the taste buds, with biscuit and bread malts appearing as the beer warms on the tongue. Mouth feel is medium in thickness with a light graininess to it. Overall, biscuit, earthy malts balance well with traditional Northeast citrus hops to make a well balanced, delightful brew that doesn't blast the tongue with just citrus.

Draft. Reviewed from notes.

Peach in color. somewhat turbid in appearance. Yum. Tangerine, orange, lime, hints of fennel, young mango, cracker malt and grapefruit Zest. Dry, clean finish. Perfect level of sweetness. Medium bodied. Super solid.

Poured a very hazy golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled citrusy and juicy. Sweet up front with a nice piney bitterness for balance. Very good.
