Notes: This New England style IPA is named after the 15 acre rock field that is located North East of Hamburg. This is an American IPA that features mostly tropical fruit hop aroma and flavor. Heavily dry hopped to provide a fuller body, smoother flavor, and less bitterness than your standard IPA.

3.52/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

16oz pour into a large goblet at the brewpub this afternoon.

thick fruit juice appearance of a body, well beyond "hazy". small white head dissipates to a ring & faint covering. Little in the way of lacing.

Very very faint aroma of non citrus fruit.

upon tasting, not very hoppy, and quite smooth, as you would expect from the style. The fruit flavors are very muted. It's a little thin on body, and while not in any way unpleasant, this doesn't offer much either.

Mouth less than medium, finish smooth and very lightly fruity.

Overall, a little disappointed in this one. Was expecting a bit more oomph in the taste department, but did not deliver.
