Cloudy light yellow. No bitterness. Fruity. Refreshing.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Light citrus and herbal hops followed by toasted, bready, biscuity, and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. Simple and balanced.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, light bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Was expecting more from these guys considering I like some of their other brews. More of a pale ale than IPA too.

POUR: From a 12 oz bottle. Deep gold color, some slight floating sediment, but very fine particles. Soapy white head forms and stays. Looks like a typical IPA, though the sediment hurts the rating slightly. Good lacing though.

SMELL: Leafy hops are big in the nose, with floral and bitter aroma. A touch of grapefruit pith and light sweetness are underneath flowery hop.

TASTE/FEEL: Bitter upfront, and pretty much stays there. Citrus pulp tries to poke through a bit. Malt has a honey flavor and acts as a perfect vessel for the bitter assault. As it warms a slight nutty note from the caramelized malt. Unfiltered raw hoppiness grinds away to a drier feel on this medium bodied pale. Abrasive at first with citrus and tangerine coming through nicely.

OVERALL: A drinkable IPA for sure, and one I would turn to often. This is East Coast IPA all day. It is a fine, gritty specimen of a style quickly falling behind the times.
