Pours a copper amber hue with a medium lasting off white head. Aroma and Taste of caramel malt, floral citrus hops, yeast and fruity esters. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, citrus floral hops, some yeast, seems a bit on the malty side. Overall a typical IPA nothing really stand out but good drinking brew.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the glass. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Nice citrus and grapefruit aroma with some slight toasted and caramel malts. The aromas were a bit light and hard to detect.

Taste: Pretty tasty EIPA with nice blending of above aromas and subtle bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: smooth, low to medium carbonation, crisp, low to medium bodied, and easy to drink.

Overall: Pretty solid score here on my travels from Boston to MD and back over Thanksgiving. Will look for this one next time I head back down in that area.
