Earthy and a bit dank on the nose as the typical fruit juiciness of the New England IPA takes a bit of a back seat to floral hops. Only with warmth does some grapefruit, orange, and mango start to emerge. Very similar flavor profile with floral and herbal bitterness pulling ahead of the fruits. A mild sweetness develops along the middle, with citrus fruits providing a little punch on a dry, mildly bitter finish. Outstanding.
