32oz Boston Round growler from the brewery.

Hazed out pale copper hue, excellent lacing all around. Semi-brash citrus rind from Cascade hops, hint of mint and dry breadiness too boot. Smooth with a solid medium body from the sturdy malt backbone. Hearty hop bitterness has big citrus flavors of rind and pith, those flavors linger with a meeting of bread and faint yeast. The dry finish pushes me for another sip.

Loving this brew as it take you to another place rather than the usual paths of trendy IPAs.

Poured from a tap at the Washington Street Mall in Cape May into a standard pint glass.

A: A medium to darker amber color with a one finger off white head. Nice glass lacing.

S: Pine and floral hops, grainy and bready sweetness, rich smelling.

T: The hops bite up front nicely with tons of pine, some earthy notes, floral notes and a bit of citrus. The deep rich malt comes through with bread notes, grains and some sweeter caramel. Finish is a nice balance between the hops bitterness and the lingering sweetness. Very balanced, very nice!

M: Medium to full mouthfeel, very rich with the sweetness and some bitterness. Nice carbonation, very drinkable.

O: A very solid and balanced IPA that was very enjoyable to drink and one that I would drink again if I see it.

I was surprised at this beer being as solid as it is. I think this is a nice flagship beer that is perfect for that area. Solid craft brew, but not super complex or fancy. Just a very drinkable and enjoyable IPA. Well done, I'll be trying more of their beer and I'll try to get to the brewery for a tasting/tour.
