4.2/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Date on bottle 05/18/11. Poured into the large allagash chalice.
A- Pours a semi-transparent light brass hue that sits a nice copper orange in the glass. A casual pour creates a huge milk white foamy head that stays around for a while. Lacing is an intense sea foam.
S- smell is mild, pineapple mostly. Some soft biscuity note but not much. Decent for an IPA.
T- A sharp zesty bitterness upfront with a unique woodsy dry pine flavor that leads into more of the zesty pineapple type of notes with some grapefruit spritz. The hops are a fresh and zesty blend. The mid is where the upfront bitter quality melds into more of a soft and mild toasted toasted malt and light oatmealish flavors in the end and finish. Quite complex.
M- A sharp dry initial champagne feel on the palate that really widens and becomes moist. The body rounds out and begins to dry very well after finishing a sip. The bitterness is mellow on the palate and the light fruity qualities of the hoppy pineapple notes do rest on tongue. Some abrasive feel on tip of tongue after drinking for a bit.
O- A great IPA. Lots of variety in the taste department during a sip. I strongly suggest picking this beer up.

Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. LOL, love it! On bottle it says to drink fresh, because hoppy beers don't age well. I will obey this. Thanks to papparoachy for being one of the most generous ba's I have had a pleasure to trade with.
A- Murky honey, medium medium-large lacing, white fluffy lacing, medium legs
S- Hint of jasmine in there, smells great with that, but lacks some other qualities of a good IPA S. Mild hoppy backbone that has a foggy smell in your nose.
T- This tastes like Zeelander but has more of a great IPA taste. Fluffy hoppy, bit malty. Nice and light, not overboard on anything. Def lunch
M- 5.0 on this. Crushes it just like Zeelander does on the M. Creamy as hell, nice and fluffy, so masterfully done on the M.
O- SO glad this great BA sent me this as an extra! Wow, so good!
