Multiple times drinking Into The Woods.. its time for a review.
I've always liked ITW. I seek it out whenever I go to PA to pick up some beer.
S: Fresh and aromatic with fruit and tropical aroma's, there is a very subtle comfort factor for me with ITW.
T: Mostly with tropical overtones.. with a slight fruitiness that blends in very well. Very little bitterness.
F: Medium, smooth, creamy with a little carbonation.
O: One of my favorite comfort beers. If it's available when I go to PA, they come home with me.. no matter what else is in
the cart.

-bright yellow can pour with a deep haze. Aroma is light with tangerine and pine. The flavor cites the name, woodsy resin and some citrus. There is a very pleasant and persistent hop bitterness. The finish is somewhat dry.

5/19/18 canning is a bit older than I'd like for a first time IPA, but it'll have to do... Medium-gold hazy body - not like juice, but essentially opaque... Finger of bubbly ivory-colored head on top... Definitely getting melon impressions, followed by some pine... Neither particularly bitter nor sweet... Light feel, little bit of pine shellac on the finish... Herbal, earthy, woodsy kinda character lingers along with some faint, mild fruit... Decent, but doesn't stand out for me...

Poured from a 16oz can into a Speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a cloudy orange yellow with a billowy white head.

Aroma is candy orange.

Taste matches aroma with a little herbal/ orange blossom honey at the end.

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cantaloupe melon, orange citrus, and papaya are present in the nose along with faint hints of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell and is stronger, starting off with initial flavors of cantaloupe melon and finishing with notes of grapefruit citrus and hints of papaya. There is only a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a rather juicy New England-style IPA that is packed with a lot of citrusy and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. It is also quite drinkable.

Serving type: can

Semi-cloudy yellow look. Smell is very nice tropical oranges and melon. Taste follows smell but at end there is a little pepper/grapefruit bite. Light to medium mouth feel. Very nice NE IPA. Not a total juice bomb, very well balanced tastes. Would buy again.

16oz can served in a pint glass. 03/28/18.

Pours pretty hazy with a smallish head and not a lot of visible carbonation. It's pungent. And it smells nice. A little pine, a little tropical.

Taste is more flatly bitter than I would really like. Pine, but not a lot else going on.

Mouthfeel is nicer than I expected from the looks -- more effervescent. It's lively. Overall, it's a pretty good beer.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed golden orange pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Great retention and sticky lacing.

S: Tropical fruits and melon... citrusy and floral.

T/F: Light grain backbone with a tropical NE style IPA hop profile. Juice and citrus... pineapple, melon, and papaya. floral notes... modest bitterness. Light and effervescent.

O: An easy drinking low-ish ABV NEIPA. Solid flavor and very crushable.
