12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy dark medium orange with a half finger white head. Head retention is not that good with just some mild lacing.

Aroma is typical of what I would consider a classic East coast IPA. Very heavy on the earthy, piny hops with a healthy dose of malt thrown in for good measure. A touch of caramel and biscuit.

Flavor is hop-heavy from the get go with pine and tree bark and lots of bitterness. A bit of a soapy flavor that then transitions into caramel and biscuit. Bitterness is present throughout and lingers long into the finish. Mouthfeel is a touch on the watery side finishing a bit sticky.

Overall, this beer isn't bad but there is nothing at all to make it stand out. In this day and age where everyone has an IPA, this one is just mediocre.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours orange yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Smells of citrus and piney hops, but not overly strong. Tastes of earthy and slight citrus hops, nice balance. Beer is slightly heavily carbonated but it is smooth and goes down really easily. Overall a pretty good beer.
