12oz bottle, dated 8/2014 by the notches. Poured into an unlabeled snifter 8/30/2014.

A- Darker amber-orange body with a one finger offwhite head that doesn't stick around for very long. Leaves a very thin film and even thinner collar. Not much lacing. [3.5]

S- Peaches, tropical fruit, some grapefruit and caramel. Even a bit of leafy hops. Pretty appetizing stuff. The peach aspect is actually quite nice. [4]

F- Tropical fruits- I'm thinking passion fruit in particular- with some citrus. Not as much of the peach I was getting in the nose; that may very well be the passion fruit mixing in with the pale malt sweetness. Either way, there is more grapefruit and a solid caramel, bread malt backbone that props the whole house of hops up. Very solidly brewed local IPA. [4.25]

M- Medium in body, not watery or insubstantial in any regard. Silky smooth with the right amount of stickiness and dryness that I enjoy in IPAs. Leafy green hops round the backend out. Very easy to drink and certainly enjoyable. [4]

O- For the most part I didn't appreciate Maryland's beer very much when I was in college, eschewing them for the likes of Dogfish Head, but this one brewery has made strides and I'm surprised I didn't have this one before. A delicious, very good quality local IPA. [4.25]

Smoooooth and very rich, yet not too hoppy at the same time. Can't get enough!

This is an absolutely wonderful IPA. It pours a rich, and ivory in appearance, head. A very complex flavor that is rich in citrusy hops with a mild sweetness that provides an awesome balance. This has become one of my favorite IPAs.

Complex, sessionable, and super citrusy IPA. Lots of grapefruit flavor mixed with pine and pineapple. Could definitely do a few of these on a hot day.
