A: Actually rather dark for an IPA style. Amber with a thick cloudy head that stays

S: Citrus and flowers, very sharp

T: Citrus, grains, potent bitterness with a sweet immediate bite as well, strong bitter aftertaste

M: Smooth, not excessively carbonated, not too oily

This beer is honestly one of the cheaper decent IPAs I've encountered. I'm not a natural fan of IPA. I tend to like darker beers, but this one is interesting and tasty, if not necessarily easy to toss back. What it lacks in crowd-appeal it makes up for in complexity

From 10/27/12 notes. Had this on tap at Dirty Frank's in Philly. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear golden color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of fruity malts, pine hops, light citrus, bready malts. Lots of pine and fruit, very nice nose.

t - Taste follows the nose. tastes of pine hops, fruity malts, tropical fruits, citrus, bready malts. A little hoppier than the nose; again, quite nice.

m - Moderate carbonation and medium body. No bitterness, and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a very nice local pale ale. Some nice fruit and pine hops to it and easy to drink. Would like to have it again.

Poured a clear light amber color with small white head, lots of tiny bits floating about. Aroma is faint with toasted malt and floral hops. Taste and feel is thin with a bit of malt up front then turns a bit dry floral bitterness that sticks around. Overall very light tasting easy to drink brew.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, some citrus. Taste is also hop forward, piney, considerable bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while not a bad beer, it is a little unbalanced for my liking.
