Notes/Commercial Description:
Aromatic hops accompanied by bold flavors of citrus; crisp and refreshing from start to finish. Connecting the Indian River Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian River Inlet provides fishermen and seafarers alike coastal and off-shore adventure. When stormy weather abounds, strong currents and large swells test the skills of local surfers.

Picked up this 12 oz bottle while in Cape May for vacation.
Pouring at cellar temp into a snifter.
THe beer pours a clear copper hue with minimal densely packed head of about .25 cm that fades to a sturdy edge layer and wispy surface layer in a fairly short order.
Aroma is some caramel and toffee mixed cleanly with grassy hops. I also get a bit of general hop quality, I guess vegetal is a good descriptor. Aroma isnt overpowering but works for the style of beer.
First sip reveals an average body with fine tingly carbonation. Texture is easy drinking and light but not watery, enhances the beer and its drinkability.
Flavor is briefly toffee but rolls to slightly bitey hops with some grassy characteristics. I end up with a fairly puckering bite on my palate after each sip. Dries out my mouth pretty evenly as well.
This beer is very drinkable and I dont get any hints of the booze.
Quite a nice straightforward IPA. I would buy it again if it was available in CT.

A good English IPA. 12oz bottle not dated. Light copper color, modest brief white head, no lacing. Taste and smell are dry and bitter, a little toasty, and grassy hops. Good mouth-feel, bitter finish. My wife likes it too. Easy drinking. I would drink this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Beautiful frothy light sandstone colored head is firm and well lasting sitting atop a darken reddish-orange body. A light spacious slow rise of effervesce within while a milky coating of lace sticks to the glass walls.

S: Fresh cut grass and oranges, dry caramelized bready-pine with a relatively low rate of aromatic sense. Low key, mundane, lacks enticement.

T: Flavor was bitter, dry pine, dry caramel with a bitterness of dried lemon peels. Mid-range level of dry hopping, lower end level of complexity. The bitterness is there, just not alot of flavor component. Some warming citrus flowers and dry bread crust, with a dry caramelized citrus twang on the swallow.

M: Malty medium heavy body, light range of carbonation presence, dry bready crust feel on the tongue.

O: Again, dry hopped, very linear flavor-wise, with a dry malting. Dry drinking, lacks excitment and range of clarity. B level of dry hop bitterness, C level of execution and delivery. Ok,

This beer has a nice copper color body, with a small head to it. The aroma is dominant strong hops, I get a little grain also. The taste is upfront bitter hops. I get a little maltness on the middle of the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth and leaves a bitter after taste. Overall this is s good english ipa.
