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.
