Pours an orange-golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with grapefruit and orange,, some melon, and peach as well as some toasted bread and even a little caramel. Flavor follows suit. Medium bodied mouthfeel with desired activity. Overall, a great IPA. Definitely a fan and I can easily see this one becoming my go to local IPA. Just going to have to stick with buying it on tap or the occasional growler given that they don't date their cans.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam.

S- Nice aroma of equal parts grassy, slightly citrusy hops and cereal grain malt sweetness.

T- Some citrus in the front gives way to a sweet malt follow-through and some moderate bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink. Bitterness lingers but not too long. ABV is well-masked.

M- Slightly sharp but moist and quenching. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A serviceable IPA that has some decent balance while still having that hop-forward flavor and bite.
