look is a deep gold with amber highlights. smell is pine, pineapple, pepper, spice, rye. taste follows with grassy hops and subdued malt. feel is simultaneously dry and juicy.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.
Poured a hazy brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a clean citric dry hop and light bready malt.
The taste was hop forward with clean notes of pine, pepper and grapefruit. A soft round psle malt supported the hops.
The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style with a pleasant carbonation and residual hop spice.
Overall a tasty hop forward sessioner.

Fairly standard IPA, a little citrusy, a little grainy, and a little light. The advertised hops are lightly present, but don't lend any distinct character. This is basically a serviceable IPA, or perhaps just simply a pale ale. Not offensive in any way, but I'd like more.

3.64/5 rDev -0.8%
(4.25) A: Clear copper with a tall creamy and bubbly head that sticks around for a long while. Foam clings very well to the glass as it slowly recedes. Very nice.
(3.75) S: Dry pine, toffee, apricot, grasses, and some nutty elements. Fairly musky with a light floral undertone that blends in well with the apricot.
(3.5) T: Floral, light dry pine, apricot, and grasses. An odd faint crisp watermelon-like finish (but it’s nice). Hoppy bitterness in the finish. Quite a restrained taste overall even considering the ABV but easy to drink and definitely sessionable.
(3.5) M: Light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Clean and crisp.
(3.75) D: This isn't the most flavourful or diverse IPA in this ABV range by any means but still a tasty and definitely drinkable IPA nonetheless.
