Poured with a clear copper body and a 1 finger, rocky head. Great appearance.

Aroma was excellent. Very bright and crisp. Light maltiness that seemed to balance out the floral, citrusy and tropical aromas of the beer. Mild caramel and biscuit aromas.

Taste was what you hope for out of an IPA. Resinous, citrus and floral hop flavors up front followed by a light maltyness and slight caramel and biscuit. Hop flavors continued throughout and the finish had a mellow bitterness that didn't destroy your tongue. Slightly piney in the finish.

Mouthfeel was medium/light body, medium carb and a crisp finish.

Outstanding beer. Anytime I'm near the east coast I make sure to get as much as this as I'm able to bring home with me. Excellent IPA.
