An aromatic and flavorful IPA . Headway gets its pronounced aroma and juicy flavor from four different varieties of American hops. A backbone of blended malt lends rounded support to let its expressive hop character shine through. This inaugural beer should be consumed fresh in the company of friends.

Draft at Yarde Tavern. Hazy yellow pour, thin silky white head. Aroma is sharp, biting citrus zest. Lemon, grapefruit. Taste mellows the zest a bit, more juicy, lactose possibly, sweetness. Still bitter enough to remain on the palate.

opaque, dark yellow orange color, thick white head. Typical NE style IPA - fruity and dank aroma, sweeter taste, soft fuller mouthfeel

Very unique New England IPA. Temperature served greatly affects taste so make sure it’s cold. $9.19/4pack is as good as it gets

Very good enjoyable beer. Had a thicker hazy look with a smooth taste. Kind of more closely resembled an DIPA but without the higher alcohol content. Overall a pretty solid IPA.

Got this one while waiting on my 90 minute flight delay at BDL. Served on draft. Really good beer. Fruity and citrusy with a firm body. Good clean finish with well rounded flavor. Solid beer.

Headway is my favorite go to beer and a outstanding value in today's craft beer market. When you consider the 4 pack price at a local CT package store, Headway is close to 1/3 less than other comparable craft brews next to it. Nice balanced IPA.
