This beer is amazing! I just moved up to MA from AZ, and was spoiled by all of the West Coast IPAs out there... moving here took a little hunting and homework to find great beer... this is one!

The taste reminded me a lot of Stone's Enjoy By, but without the heavy booze. Was on the fence about buying it, and then had it on draft at Armsby Abby... bought a case the next day.

12oz. can served in a tumbler. Pours a golden orange with a rocky 1.5 inch, buttermilk colored head. Distinct malt presence in the nose, followed by a piney, floral, resinous, citrusy character. Taste is a bit more earthy/herbal than piney with an astringent, slightly medicinal bitterness that lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive, slightly prickly carbonation that leaves a slight residual burn at the back of the throat. Acidity lightly stimulates that salivary glands. Overall, a decent American IPA; perhaps a bit too malty for my general sensibilities, but pretty solid. I bet this beer would make a great cask offering.
