From the pint can, it pours a clear golden amber with a nice head, soon diminishing to a nice ring. Some lacing. Grassy and piney in the nose. Pine resin in the mouth as well, with a malt background.

Poured from a 16 oz can purchased at Windsor, dated 05/07/18 into the pint glass
A - Nice clarity, gentle carbonation, with an aggressive pour, cap of snow white can be created.
S - Pine, pineapple, a bit of warm toast, herbal elements are grassy
T - Follows the nose well, some excellent orange reduction in there as well
M - Medium in body, gently carbonated, this is an area for improvement, finish is semi sweet, linger has a hint of bitterness
O - A well done offering. hops are well proportioned, the base beer is solid. Worth keeping in the fridge

Pint can. 7.8 % abv. 58 ibu. New England stylie

A totally clear liquid that has gold and amber colorations. A rocky, snow capped foam leaves some very nice, intricate lacing behind. Big sticky, foam clumps hang on like crazy. The liquid seems a bit heavy....and totally clear.

The nose has the classic Harpoon-esque amber malty aroma happening first and formost. Spice and sweet tropical fruits from the hops happen next.wild Honey wheat bready malt, dense, sweet fruits and pepper rounds out the aromatics.

A clean, sharp malty bite to the medium bodied brew leaves a lasting impression. Pepper, leafy dry earth, herbals and green grass sums up the first hit. The classic, Harpoon, amber malty body provides a heavy balanc3, spiced dark wheat bread. A very, zesty, earthy toned body and mouthfeel, spices over smokey caramel and pine with black pepper herbs seems to be the zenith of the flavor spectrum. Medium sized complexity of hops.

Overall, a rather complex....*almost* New England style ipa. I mean, it's Harpoon..so isnt every ipa they make NE style? Mot exactly. It's their own style. Low points if this is in fact, a stab at the NE stylie ipa's , good points for beingban extra good Harpoon release.

pours out a clear golden orange color with a dense off white head. leaves some nice lacing, great looking brew. very mild aromas of grassyness, bread, some sweet fruity hops and a hint of pine. palate follows for the most part. some malty and sweeter notes, hint of orange and some green floral qualities, touch of pine on the finish. overall a nice shelfie!

From a 16 oz 4-pk of cans dated 4-15-17. The pour is a clear golden lager, not much lacing, looks a bit on the thin side. The head disappears pretty fast.
Decent aroma, a bit tropical and piney on the nose,
The taste is mostly the same as the aroma, pine and citrus with a touch of malt.
The mouth feel was a bit thin.
Overall it's OK but nothing spectacular, there are much better DIPA's out there but the price point is a bit more reasonable. I have three more and will enjoy them but they will not be a center piece of the evening.

L - Golden yellow with hazy body and two finger of thick, white head

S - Resinous with malty sweetness. Peaches and candied orange.

T -Earthy, moss, grass, tree bark, sweet malts, peach pit, stone fruits

F - Feels bigger than abv. Sweet at times, but earth hops bring you back.

O - One of Harpoon's best. Good to see a solid NE DIPA that isn't a juice bomb.
