look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a deep, cloudy russet hue with a big, foamy, tan head.

S- Dark fruit, pine resin

T- Deep roasted malt notes, robust fruitiness followed by sustained piney hopiness.

M- Medium to thick with ample carbonation.

D- This is a very drinkable IPA. More robust and malty than I am used to for the style but a nice sipper.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz beer poured into pint glass.

A: Highly carbonated appearance with pale color. Not much in terms of lacing but significant head.

S: Woodsy aroma with strong bitterness in the hops. Flowery and almost painfully hope nose.

T: The sweetness of the malts and the bitterness are well balanced here and intense. Only 65 IBUs a bit of surprise, really seems higher profile. Enjoyed the malts but a little high on the bittering.

M: A bit too overly oily for my taste but the carbonation was perfect.

D: Highly drinkable in terms of taste most likely but I can see the hops becoming a bit overbearing over time. Love hops but I think it could get to be a bit much.

Look is golden to orange, hardly any carbonation on this sample, but a good head on it.

Smell is very fresh. Hops, pine, fresh cut grass, grapefruit, apricot.
Taste is bitterness with a bite. The hops are dominant.
Mouthfeel is medium: it doesn't have too much alcohol in it. Taste doesn't linger very long either.

Overall it's great stuff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 12/4/12.

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden orange color with a thin film of off-white head.

Aroma: Orange citrus and pine. Caramel syrup. And oddly enough, lettuce (but not in a bad way).

Taste: An interesting mix of flavors. Definitely notes of citrus and pine like in the nose mixed with a very nice balance of caramel and crystal malts. The odd aroma is coming through in the taste and I detect the flavor of lettuce. It might just be a type of earthy hop character. Either way it is an interesting flavor that gives a nice brightness to the palate. 7.1% ABV actually seems a tad potent for the amount of flavor in this one but it's not a huge stretch. Smooth and almost a wet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body with average carbonation and easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: A decent IPA that's worth the purchase especially if you are into East Coast IPAs. Would I drink it again? Maybe, I just don't care much for the hop profile.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nice Amber color, half inch thick white head, with nice retention and lacing.
Smell: Aroma is flowery, and citrusy, with some light pine notes and just a light sweet malt tinge.
Taste: Piney up front, with a nice citrus flavor, and a good malt backbone.
Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, with a nice crisp dry finish.
Overall: I really like this beer, this one was pretty fresh, bottled three weeks ago, I'll definitely seek this one out again.

Pours a rich orange with a fantastic pillowy head and stick-to-the-walls lace.

Aroma: Juicy, juicy hops. Grapefruit, light pine, and a mild toasty malt note that says "come on, stop typing and drink me already."

Taste: Just as good. An explosion of citric hoppy goodness in the mouth, tingly upper cheeks similar to ruby red grapefruit juice, and a creamy, malty, sweet toasty malt body. Never overly bitter or grainy. Finishes with a faint falling off to leafy, earthy notes. Not a hop bomb in that it's more than sufficiently malty to back it up.. more like a hop laser.

This fills the gap in my soul left by the lack of Southern Tier IPA in Florida -- absolutely top notch. I'm looking back at the 4.5 I filled in for taste... no. This is a perfect IPA, absolutely balanced and delicious. Five you earn.
