A - Poured a deep, dark amber with hints of brown. Generous head filled my Sam Adams pint glass to the very top and it retained well throughout, leaving thick lacing down the glass. Really nice presentation.

S - Followed the color of the beer. It was a darker, earthier smell. Fairly faint.

T - Follows the nose. I didn't detect much of the citrus that others seem to see. Mostly I just got the earthiness and a really well-done bittering sensation.

M - Nice medium-bodied. It hangs on to the tongue long enough to let the bitterness sink in, but not enough to make it an unwelcome guest. Relatively clean finish.

O - Good enough IPA, but I confess that my personal tastes lead me towards the lighter, more citrusy flavored ones. Still, nice East Coast IPA.

The bottle has a Best By 12/10/13.

The beer comes in a deep red ruby color with a bit of brown in there. It has a frothy creamy white head.

It doesn’t have much of an aroma. Fresh hops and a malty sweetness.

The flavor has a pop of grapefruit and bitter tea. Then the malt is a bit grainy actually, but also with some caramel sweetness. The finish is an earthy piney finish. It almost has that resiny dank bitterness like marijuana. It’s pretty dry and bitter on the end.

This is a very well done IPA. It actually reminds me a slightly smaller Arrogant Bastard.
