On-tap 11/16/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus and a good amount of hops.
T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a nice strong hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp a very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Very tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good IPA to drink for a long time. It’s easily the best beer I’ve had from Cape Ann.

On tap at Cambridge Common.
Slightly hazy orange color with a creamy white head, with good retention and sticky lacing on the glass. Very nice presentation, especially for a hoppy big abv beer!
Aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruits with a bit of bready malt in the background. Flavor is a cornucopia of fruity hops balanced with a spicy pine note. Contemplating this beer, one can pick out any number of fruit notes, with the pine coming up toward the finish. The flavors seem to line up and not get in each others way - very hoppy but with good finesse and balance.
Medium mouthfeel, totally appropriate for the style and maybe seeming more like a 7.5% abv rather than the 9% listed. Again good finesse and balance.
Wow! To be honest, I ordered a sample of this not expecting to order a full glass. I had never heard of this brewery before and expected to order a Flower Power instead. But one sip told me that the east coast has a new DIPA to rival the best. And it just seemed to get better as I enjoyed it (unlike some big beers that bog down after 1/2 a glass). Heady Topper has company now....if this makes it into regular production (please!!).
