An incredible NE IPA. On par with any others I have had in the Northeast. $14.99 a four pack isn't a bad price for this one. It was only 7 days old when I had it, so fressssshhhh. 5/5. As far as I know, beer doesn't get better than this.

L - 1.5 finger fizzy offwhite head atop a milky yellow body.

S - tangerine, pineapple, herb.

T - tangerine and pineapple, followed by dirt, some dankness, bitter grapefruit rind, a hint of medicinal/bandaid. Slight hop burn on the finish. Moderate bitterness. No sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-full body with minimal carb.

O - this is an intense ipa. Quite bitter, and the hop burn is noticeable going down. For me that’s a winning combo, although you may want to let this sit a few weeks if you don’t like the burn.

(Canned 1/17/19 - 16 days ago)

From a can, 28 days old into a nonic pint. Poured a turbid mess of swirling particulates... no head. Im not pleased. I expected a better looking beer for 17 dollars (and change!) per four pints. Unappealing, unappetizing. Not sure if this is unfiltered or what but theres too much floating in my beer! There are plenty of hazey and unfiltered beers out there that dont look like a glass of partially dissolved metamucil. Nose is underwhelming. Taste is fine but pretty boring. Nothing jumping out as vibrant flavor. Under-carbonated as well. Flat mouthfeel. not bitter enough at all. I hope this beer was improperly stored or something but its only a few weeks old... your product should have some shelf life. Pretty bummed about my 20 dollar bill going to this... price point sucks. quality sucks.

Super pineappley aroma,color is out of this world. This beer tastes like a hop filled tropical IPA with a good amount of flavor. Very nice
