look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Growler into a tulip (thanks again cavedave!) Pours a hazy glowing orange w/ a nice sudsy head.

Aroma is a big tropical burst of citrus, just the way I like my IPAs. Predominantly orange and grapefruit. Reminds me of Sculpin or Workhorse.

Taste follows nose. Nice citric acidity with a clean underlying sweetness. Finishes with a nice bitterness without scouring the palate with IBUs. Great balance. Juicy.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied w/ a nice dry finish.

Overall, this is the real deal. A clean, dry, flavorful West Coast style IPA from the far Northeast. Highly recommended.

Serving type: growler
