Notes: Born on 5/21/14 (consumed 07/22/14). Poured into a nonic pint

A: Cloudy apricot colored beer that sports a 2 finger white head. the head is pillowy and comprised mostly of smaller bubbles. The bottle has a very clear shoulder label with the bottled date.

S: Sweet smelling, with hints of apple and caramel. There are malty smells. Not getting any floral or strong hop scents.

T: A hint of bitter but well balanced with a sweetness from the malts. There is a mild caramel characteristic along with some pine needles.

M: Really nice mouthfeel. Smooth and coating feeling. No strong bitter or dry after taste.

O: This is a great East Coast Style IPA. I would put the ABV estimate at 6.2% or lower. There is a slight alcohol presense - but nothing distracting. The sweetness balanced with the mild bitter is really nice. The body is fantastic along with the mouthfeel. This is a really enjoyable IPA. I would definitely drink more or share them. This is a beer that an early IPA padawan might like - as they develope their palate. It is a good intro to the style - without being a hop bomb.
