4.68/5  rDev +22.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

a slightly hazy amber pour (leaning towards orange), 2 fingers bright white head.
smells of piney hops, toasted caramel/honey background.. sweet, floral, almost like a forest.

there's a very subtle bitterness in the taste. dirt, earth, pine, flowers, honey, roasted grains.. kind of complex for an ipa!

light - medium body, very refreshing, crisp yet makes you want more.
an excellent session ale, a very tasty ipa (more leaning towards the english ipa form the complex malt profile) with a very nice floral hop bitterness. a wonderfully balanced ipa to be on the lookout for!

Serving type: growler

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.

An amber hued hazy beer. Aroma was a balance between floral hops and sweet malts. Taste was smooth and refreshing with a mildly hop bite and sweet malts. Not bitter at all and pretty flavorful. A very flavorfull beer on what was probably the hotest day of the year. A missed review from July.

Serving type: growler
