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.

A: This poured a hazy dark gold with lots of off white head.
S: It smelled like fresh apricot and pineapple, with some mango and grapefruit and sweet honey.
T: It tasted like bitter grapefruit and sweet pineapple, with some apricot and honey. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a solid IPA, but not as powerful or impressive as I expected. The scent and taste were great, just not very bold. The body was weak, but the finish was very smooth. So it was really easy to drink. Didn't live up to the hype, but still very enjoyable.

500 ml bottle into tulip. Thank you pjkelley82

Pours a nice golden orange color with slight haziness, nice one inch white head. Smell is bold citrus. Lots of orange and grapefruit notes. Taste is like the nose with a little pine to balance it out. Not to bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall a great IPA.

Draught @ Brewery: This one pours a hazy orangish color. There was a finger or so of head on it, and left lots of lacing. The aroma is nice. Lots of different tropical fruits, with some citrus thrown in too. The taste is also quite good. A good hope bite to it, with some citrus notes. Followed by a decent malt body with a touch of the sweetness trying to come through. Another solid beer from them!
