Aroma

The aroma is pungent with pine and resin and balanced with a whiff of tropical fruit.

The IPA presents well enough and the dank aroma is enticing. The feel is spot on and the palate delivers a nicely hopped flavors that’s well balanced. Overall, the Accumulated Knowledge is a solid New England-style IPA.
