Pours a nice orange color, pretty clear, with a decent head. The smell is classic; citrus, pine, floral with a touch of caramel and the taste follows suit. The smell is moderate, but the taste takes it up a notch. No one would ever accuse this beer of being overstated, but you don't have to search around for the aroma, or the taste. Mouthfeel is good.
Overall, this is one of the quintessential American IPA's. It's a classic, there's hardly a time when you wouldn't be happy to drink it and I'm really happy that it's made it into NY distribution!

I flippin love this beer. Aroma is soft citrus/floral notes, but also somehow briny and evocative to me of the seashore or (as more appropriate for Michigan) a day out on the lakes. The mouthfeel is rather full-bodied for an IPA. Carbonation is not noticeable. Very little bitterness/dryness--just a faint note from the hops. What is amazing here is the beautiful balance between the malts and hops, and the easy drinkability that somehow highly rewards every sip. And again, I find this beer highly evocative--really reminds me of laid-back days in the great, wild outdoors. One of my favorite IPAs.
