Had this at Max's during Hops Fest with a turkey frank and homemade chips and was thoroughly impressed. Crisp, slightly biscuity malt, great hop flavor and a nice hop aroma. I got some citrus and light pine and resins. Well-balanced, not overly bitter. It was a bit of a challenge because I had a half dozen other hoppy beers prior to this one, so the old flavor-taker was being challenged, but I loved every drop. I would have this one again and again.

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!
