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.

06/03/2014 date.

A- Pours amber/orange with a large fluffy white head. Lots of fluffy lacing remains.

S- Pine, citrus, sweet malts. Slightly dank. Classic good IPA scent.

T- Very fruity. Orange, grapefruit and pine with a nicely balanced malty backbone. No alcohol taste to speak of really.

M- Medium body with decent carbonation. A great bitter aftertaste.

O- A wonderful IPA. Will have again when I can find it.

Appearance - Pours a clear copper hue with three fingers of foamy white head.

Smell - Piney hops, caramel malts, tropical fruit, lemon zest.

Taste - Nice bitter hit of piney hops. Sweetness of caramel malts and tangy tropical fruit shines through. Nice moderate bitterness overall.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - An enjoyable American IPA with a level of bitterness that satisfies both hopheads and non-hopheads alike.
