Fairly poor head production, although retention, for what it's worth, is fine. Brew is only slightly hazy, pale lemon yellow, and translucent.

Nose is very juicy, with grapefruit, orange, and lemon, mango and pineapple, peach, berries, green leaves, and mint. More citrus than I would have expected, as tropical tones seem to dominate the current IPA market - especially with so-called NE IPAs.

Very different than expected on the palate! First off, it's shockingly soft and smooth. This is perhaps the first "NE IPA" outside of the big four (HF, Alchemist, Treehouse, Trillium) that really captures that softness to me. Not very lively, but not quite syrupy as some - in particular, old-school - DIPAs can sometimes fall to.

Plenty of malt on the palate, with sweet honey, cracker, and white bread. Hop tones are layered on top of this, like orange marmalade on bread. Wildflower honey, mandarin orange, peach, mango, lemon. It's all very soft, though, nothing screaming "HOPS!" at your tongue.

This is a surprisingly excellent DIPA. The soft mouthfeel really surprised me, and it took a moment to adjust, but once I did I found it very enjoyable. The flavor profile, while delicious, is perhaps not quite up there with the best, and honestly is a little shallower than the nose, which I found much more nuanced. Still, this is a very, very good beer, and is another example that shows they really know how to brew excellent IPAs.

16oz can from Whole Foods NYC UWS. Semi-opaque orange with a fluffy white head and good lacing, sweet candies hops on the nose that follows in the taste with melon and a pleasant candied citrus zest finish, very soft to borderline thin and sticky body. Beautiful can art, lovely citrusy IPA treat. Dece.

From a crowler filled a day ago. My first offering from this Brewery and I certainly hope it will not be my last. Very Hazy - looks like OJ. Nose does not give up much. Taste is superb - not too sweet creamcicle with a bit of dank. Maybe a bit of lactose. Smooth mouthfeel. Very little sign of the ABV. Overall - delicious.

Definitely a lot of peach, papaya, mango, orange, grapefruit, etc in the smell and taste. The best one I've tasted from them so far...

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a one pint can on August 11, 2018. Juicy New England style IPA with a variety of fruit notes. Hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and finally Apollo to create a slightly bitter but creamy finish.

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a half inch of head. Good amount of lacing. The aroma is fleshy citrus and tropical fruits. Mango, guava, tangerine, pineapple, strawberry and grapefruit. The taste is sweet grapefruit, strawberry, tangerine and guava. Lightly toasted malts with some dank hop notes. Creamy, strawberry finish. Tastes slightly boozier than expected. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. I’m very happy to see this one is being canned. Great Imperial IPA.

Resinous in both color and nose. The lacing makes the beer even more intriguing. Bitterness hints then bites the back of the palate quickly. Beautiful beer and will get again.
