3.7/5 rDev +5.7%

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Three Notch'd tulip . Canned on 04/08/14 on bottom of can. Received from good friend Erinn during his recent trip to VA -- glad to have the chance to try.
A: Crystal clear light orange amber with nice 1-2 finger off-white, light beige frothy head with good retention and a nice collar of lacing.
S: Resiny most of all with some light-to-medium crystal maltiness, a little crackery but also a little sweet caramel. The pine and grapefruit citrus are most prominent but not blasting the doors off with strength or anything. No yeast or alcohol character.
T: Good flavor, a solid American IPA, equal parts West and East Coast with some bright floral, grapefruit, and pine coupled with resiny and slightly dank hops notes as well. The crystal maltiness is still light caramel and slightly but not overly sweet and plays off of a crackery, somewhat bready base. The bitterness is moderate. No yeast character and alcohol is well-hidden.
M: Solid slick mouthfeel with medium body and a dry finish. Carbonation is medium as well. No astringency -- just a solid American IPA feel.
O: Gangway IPA is a really nice, solid, drinkable American IPA which fits right in the middle of the style. No flaws other than it isn't from a big name even though it tastes like it would fit nicely in the lineup of any high-quality brewery. Just not a lot new with it -- but it is quite a good example for the style.

Refreshing, light taste. Cereal-y malty taste. Not the ipa flavor I'm used to here in the south. Light finish and after taste. Overall a decent beer, refreshing, very drinkable beer. (Tasted after being slightly intoxicated)
Not my favorite beer, but if I was given this at a BBQ I wouldn't complain.
