Pours a very hazy gold with a thumb of rocky pearl colored head, spme floaties. Great lacing & bettern than average head retention

S: Faint citrus & bready notes, just didn't deliver

T: Tangerine, grapefruit & dryness up front, a little mango as well. Graapefruit bitterness along with bready dryness & a little orange as this warms. Finishes dry with pomelo flavors

MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, carbonation becomes a little creamier as this warms

Easy to drink but not one I would buy again

I don't see a date on the can. The label says "NEW ENGLAND IMPERIAL PALE ALE"

Appearance: The body of the beer is a light beige and grapefruit orange color. It has a thick, dense, fluffy white head that is large and has very good retention. It looks fantastic in a glass.

Aroma: There is a light bit of peach aroma and a hint of mango. The aroma is very nice but very soft and faint.

Taste: There is a gentle flavor of orange and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth with a mild pithy bitterness. It is easy to drink.

Overall: It has great flavor and a mild but pleasant aroma. While it doesn't drive as much flavor or aroma into the glass as some of the competing New England IPAs, it has a very clear and defined profile that is enjoyable. I would recommend it and I would drink it from time to time.

Picked up my first Fat O Cat on a warm singles rack at my local. It's It may have been there a while but not bad after a flash freeze. I got this ONE can in MA, $6.00 for the can but I had to try it. Their distribution in CT is so minimal. They have got to improve on this.....Good brew but too many others are in easy reach.
