Pours a cloudy bright copper color with a finger of white head. The nose is nicely hoppy. The flavor falls short of the promise of the nose. The body is hearty for the style and there is a decent dry finish but the hoppiness is muted.

I'd call this a fine ESB but it is lacking as an IPA.

Very nice mouth feel. It's a little more bitter on the end than i like but overall it's solid. Strong hop profile.

Poured out as a hazy looking copper color. The head was foamy and white. The retention wasn't too bad, but not too much lacing. The smell of the beer is hoppy, you can definitely tell its more of an East Coast style more than West. The malts blend well with the hops on the nose, it's sweet smelling and rather inviting. The taste of the beer has a solid bitterness to it when a sweet maltiness upfront. The hops aren't overly dominant in this beer, they're in there but at the same time the balance is pretty good. The mouthfeel was a little on the creamy side, it was a very soft feeling IPA... Closely compared to what most English IPA's are like. Overall I Can see myself drinking this one again sometime. Will be looking forward to more releases from this new brewery in the future.
