Notes/Commercial Description:
Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Quick points since this has been reviewed by wiser and more articulate beer connoisseurs:

This beer is great on tap. If you can find it on tap consider yourself lucky. That said if you can get yourself a bottle, you won't be disappointed.

It has a higher price point compared to it's highly rated IPA competitors. I usually pay about $7 for a bottle and $8 or $9 for a pint.

This is a sneaky beer since its light, crisp, and refreshing.

Final Judgement - I'd drink this for breakfast, LUNCH, or dinner. Although it's higher priced, I still highly recommend you buy some and enjoy.

Serving type: on-tap

A: beautiful golden beer, first pour was crystal clear, second pour from end of bomber came out a little cloudy, decent white head that faded fast, with decent lacing
S: best part of this beer. tons of fruits, lots of citrus, and some pineapple, along with a slight pine at the end. Only reason it isn't perfect is because it couldve been a stronger smell
T: follows the smell, lots of citrus up front followed by a nice mellow bitterness and a slightly resin aftertaste. Very easy to drink and very tasty, just wish it had more depth to the flavor
M: Very good, refreshing and not sticky or over carbonated, maybe slightly under
