16 oz can.

Pours a hazy pale straw color with a finger of soapy white head. Pretty good head retention. Leaves some sticky lacing around the glass.

Notes of grapefruit and lemon on the nose, as well as some pineapple and bready malt. Lightly grassy and herbal.

The flavor brings a good amount of grapefruit and pineapple with some rindy citrus. Has a very strong bready malt backbone. Finishes with a subtle pine character. Very nice balance.

The feel is medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Very dry on the finish. Easy to drink.

Overall, this is a very good New England style pale ale. It's loaded with hops but also retains a great balance of flavors. Definitely a quaffer.

Poured from a 16oz can purchased from the brewery; fresh! Pours hazy, light yellow color with a decent amount of foamy head that rapidly recedes. Tastes is of a refreshing watery "New England" pale ale - fruity but light. Really good.

Purchased a four pint cans from the brewery on 12/22/20

Straw haze gold color. Thick ala NEIPA style. NEPA. Total white foam is thin cover, decent lace.

Sweet and chunky tropical fruit hops in the nose. Vanilla and golden grainy malt with sweet citrus and pineapple aromatics.

Smooooth, silky and fresh mouthfeel.
Crisp enough and then incredibly silky texture. Wow.

The blend of flavors: Vanilla soaked golden malted grains, sweet citrus snap, tropical fruit punch blend over a dense layers of earthiness. This is for sure a New England style Pale Ale. NEPA.

Modest Man here in Keene New Hampshire is making some high quality brews currently.

From a 32oz growler, filled at the brewery, oh, just about 15 minutes ago. Served in a cervoise.

Pours grapefruit juice-like in appearance with a big frothy head. Retention is excellent, leaving a heavy, pouffy cap and fat gobs of sticky lacing.

Robust citrus fruity aroma. Grapefruit, orange peel, white bread.

Initial taste sensation is straight-up grapefruit juice followed by oily orange peel and dense, bready maltiness. Resinous, oily, finishes with pitch and pith. A vague petroleum products aftertaste wanders in and out of focus.

Feel is doughy, bready, medium-hefty bodied and aggressively carbonated. Feels bigger and thicker than its 5.6% so, while not necessarily a super-easy drinking beer, most definitely a rich and satisfying one.

A heavily hopped, rich and malty pale ale. Excellent.
