A: Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass. Golden honey in color with a thick, pasty-white 2-finger head that gets a bit pockmarked and frothy as it dissipates, but leaves a nice film and good lacing. Slightly hazy with some good effervescence.

S: Malts and hops mix well on the nose, with a bright hop linger. Aromas of straw, sediment, lemon pepper, and some toasted malts all mix beautifully.

T: Bright throughout, with a very light malt flavor in-mouth and a dominant earthy/grass hop profile on the swallow and aftertaste. Quite bitter after, and with a note of wet basement. Lemony, toasty, with a dried leaf taste, as well as some nice floral notes.

M: Chewy in texture, with a nice subtle thickness that isn't off-putting. Substantial for an IPA while still remaining light (if that's possible?) enough to have a few. In-between a session IPA and a full-on DIPA.

O: A solid, tasty East-Coast IPA. Nothing too crazy in here, just well-made beer and a satisfying experience. Good for the backyard, around a fire, or huddled up inside on a chilly winter day.

A: hazy, gold; 3 finger head that faded slowly; nice lacing;

S: interesting nose; the first thing I picked up was oak - don't know where that's coming from; some pine and citrus as well;

T: piney, earthy; a little different; bitterness hits pretty quickly and it finishes with the same piney, earthy, bitterness; well balanced;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; crisp;

O: the earthiness of this beer is a little different and interesting, although I would prefer more citrus and floral notes;
