12 oz bottle poured into a nonic
Pours crystal clear pale orange color with minimal head. Aroma has a slight hoppy citrusness but overall not substantial.
First sip has a strong munich-like malt presence with firm lasting bitterness. Hop flavor is on the low side for an IIPA. I understand this is East coast style, but still I'd love a ton more flavor and aroma hops to really tantalize my taste buds. A touch on the boozy side, with a substantial malt backbone.
This is a decent beer, just not what I crave when I reach for an IIPA. Really needs to amp up the hop flavor and aroma to suit my tastes.

)n tap at the 2014 Secret Stash Bash (Atlanta).
Pours deep and dark amber. Modest but durable head.
Aroma: Interesting aroma is hoppy, as expected, but has an unusual character that is floral and herbal but otherwise rather hard to describe.
Flavor is more earthy, with mild to moderate bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation.
O: for hop heads.
Serving type: on-tap
