Bought at single at Little's Wine and Liquor. Poured into a pint. Paired with pretzels and humus.

A&S: Lively transparent amber colored beer. Off white head has good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty pungent and include dank spicy hops along with some grapefruit citrus, but also has a classic sweet sugar tone.

T&M: Alcohol is present at a great level, there but not the main component. Hop tone is very similar to the aroma. Good bitterness profile in the finish, bitter but not bruising. Medium body, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall: Very solid IPA, in my opinion maybe a little over ranked but not by much. Good price point for the quality.

On tap at George St Alehouse in New Brunswick.

Arrives in a pint glass with a finger of off white sticky foam. Amber in color. Aroma is hoppy, citrus grapefruit and piney. Nice aroma.

Quite bitter with a huge hop flavor... quite nice. Long lingering bitterness, with a passing attmpt to balance with a touch of malty sweetness. A true west coast IPA. I've had this in bottles, but fresh from a keg seems to accentuate the potent hop flavors. Excellent.
