The best of Northeast meets Westcoast! Piney citrus and yet fruity and hazy. Very delicious and refreshing!!

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a murky to hazy burnt orange color with a fair opaque-ness to it. Slight filmy coat of lace spreading out into a slight spider web sort of mentality.
The aroma had some orange pulpy sweet juiciness rolling into some sweet pine. Honey-ed biscuit malt bleeds through for a fairly nice blend.
The flavor moderates decently between a orange pulpy sweetness to the honey-ed biscuits. Piney bitterness definitely takes a hold here and not as cohesive as I would have hoped. Aftertaste is long and semi-sticky with orange pulp and honey-ed biscuits.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Decent carbonation and mostly low. ABV felt good. Finish is crisp and piney with an ample bitter harshness.
Overall, for a New England styled IPA, it's not bad. I do wish the aroma and the flavor were a bit more cohesive.

Pours a nice white creamy head. Moderate light orange, yellow haze. Moderate fruity and piney smell. Tastes pretty floral and fruity up front, definitely piney as the name suggests.

-cloudy to murky deep orange tap pour with a 2 cm foam cap and an aroma of light pine and tangerine. The flavor is full with citrus and spruce resin. The body is full and the brew finishes soft and full.

This beer is very good however, it’s described as a NE IPA on the can. This beer is definitely a classic American IPA. Very smooth tasting like a flagship IPA. Little bit of citrus that finishes with pine and a mild bitterness to round it out. Very good beer that I would rate higher if it wasn’t described as a NE IPA in the label.
