Purchased at High Spirits in Providence, RI. Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Pours a cloudy, golden orange amber. Cloudier than I remember with lots of sediment floating around. About 1 1/2 fingers of white head.
The nose is unique. Much more subdued than many west coast IPA's and DIPA's. Citrus, grapefruit, slight malty breadiness. Not a powerful perfume in nose like some other hoppy IPA's.
Very smooth to drink. One of the more sessionable IPA's I've had. Solid carbonation with nice mouthfeel. More grapefruit.
The finish is the best part of this ipa in my opinion. Bitter finish. It stays with you. Lingers on in the mouth. Resiny, earthy, citrus after taste.
For the price one of the best east coast IPA's I've had.
