Pours a hazy, somewhat orange gold color with a 2 finger biscuit head.

Aroma has some citrus notes in it along with some malt.

The taste is a blend of malt and citrus/pine hops, fairly clean in taste lightly bitter. There is a light sweetness behind it all that works really well with this one.

Feel is a soft with a bit of alcohol burn.

This was the one of all I tried up at Shilling that I took home in can. I felt better about it on tap than out of the can but it is a solid DIPA nonetheless. No off-flavors, well balanced. This is worth a stop into Littleton if you are passing nearby I think.

Cloudy,dirty gold color. Moderate to minor head. Decent leaving -- some blankets, spots, and streaks.

Clean pale malt start. The hop is present and subtle. I get mostly cream to the nose.

The flavor is like an APA without any element being too dominant. The body leans to the thin side but the carbonation is low enough to make this work. The flavor start off as rich (pale) malt. The hop kicks in but doesn't dominate, leaving the aftertaste to be moderately long.

On-tap at The Tip Tap Room, Boston, MA

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit rinds are present in the nose along with hints of orange citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of orange citrus along with hints of passionfruit. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is easy to drink and seems to be a little denser on the mouthfeel compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Vermont Tap House, Williston, VT.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a rugged dark orange color with a bar pour's kind of slim white head that slid off immediately. Barely any lace.
The aroma had a extremely nice blend of sweet citrus/grapefruit and orange juice just flowing into each other so nicely. Light notes of sweet grass.
The flavor yields to the sweetness initially of the orange to grapefruit meshing while punching in a little bit of grassy spicy hoppiness just before the aftertaste hits with some grapefruit and orange juice.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Though nothing distractible, it's quite a nice mobile smooth juicy feel running along my tongue. Good carbonation and ABV. Finish was a substantial faint grip of juicy orange rind and grapefruit rind.
Overall, very nicely done DIPA I would have again.

Poured from a 32 oz crowler into a tulip glass.

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with 2 fingers of soapy off-white head. The head leaves a ton of clingy lacing as it settles into a thick foam.

The aroma brings notes of overripe mangoes, papaya, and grapefruit with some hints of pineapple, orange rind, and pine.

The flavor has a lot of citrus, namely grapefruit and orange, backed up by a solid biscuity, caramel malt and a huge wave of pine. Very earthy finish, like chewing on grass.

The feel is medium bodied with pretty good carbonation. Very sticky and dry.

Overall, a very good DIPA that packs a good amount of flavor and aroma. A nicely balanced beer that fits both New England and West Coast styles.
