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.

Bottle courtesy of BostonRyan, much appreciated. Bottled 3/26/13, drank about 3 weeks fresh. Poured into a HF glass.

A: Opaque orange amber color with a nice 2+ finger head of great retention and lacing.

S: Great citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, a little pine, very nice.

T: A lot of bitterness. Like the bottle says, definitely a bite to this beer. The hop flavors from the nose are present but subdued. No alcohol presence.

M: Moderate-high carbonation, medium body, dry finish.

O: Definitely enjoyed, probably wouldn't go too far out of the way for it, but it is a solid IPA from a solid brewery.
