Many, many thanks to WarriorSoul for this and other extras!!
12 oz bottle with a pleasant, no-nonsense label. I dug the tidbit about its being overhopped so as to hold up under the harsh conditions during the 12 mile ferry ride from Marthas Vineyard.
Pours a light burnt orange into my trusty pint glass. Small, disperse head, slightly offwhite, fading quickly. . .few bubbles, little bunches of bubbles stuck to the glass here and there, but for the most part no lacing.
Nose is surprisingly sweet and malty for an IPA.
Decent caramel malt up front, rolling into a bit of a hoppy (but interestingly enough, still caramelly) bitter after taste. Not very complex by any means, but very smooth, and VERY drinkable. Almost has an iced tea taste to it. This would definitely be a go-to for an outdoor event on a hot day, just enough flavor and hops to please, very drinkable and refreshing.

Thin head, barely half a finger of orange tinted eggshell tan color, the lacing has decent thickness but close to no stickiness. Cloudy yellow-orange liquid, opaque and holds light easily, hard to see any bubbles floating inside. The nose full of grains, wheat and sourdough, pepper, earth and grass, spoonful of molasses yet not a lot of pine, citrus or pit fruit, small dose of cocoa, kind of tough and gritty and without a sustained sweet component. Medium-bodied, the carbonation grinds things in place, not much spreading out. Cocoa, mocha, orange peel, pine and nectarine to pineapple fruit give it a nicely typical IPA profile, at the same time it stays within itself, no distracting burn. Credible malt presence, brings more sweetness than any citrus or flowers. Compact ending without seeming short. Lack of flash might tempt you to underrate it.
