4.59/5  rDev +12.5%

Appearance: Copper with orange tint and hazy clarity. Solid head with good lacing

Aroma: Citrus fruit, spicy

Taste: Big hop taste, citrus, piney, spicy, complex. Still has hint of sweet/toasty malt that (almost) balances it

Feel: Very smooth, light carbonation, medium body and a long semi-wet finish

Absolutely one of my favorite affordable IPA's

Pours a murky, dirty amber color with a meager white head that soon disappears. Aroma has a strong grapefruit and pine hop presence (though I've smelt more ferocious than this). Flavor matches the aroma--hops, hops, and more hops. Maybe some malt character can be detected in the finish, but it's hard to tell with the prolonged hop taste. Drinkable, but decidedly one-dimensional. Typical IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulips. Purchased in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a pretty hazy khaki brown body with a white bubbly head that sticks around for a white and leaves blotchy lacing.

S- Very floral, fresh alpine notes, lemon zest, fresh bread. Quite inviting thus far.

T- Sweet caramel malt upfront, balanced with a citrusy hop bite. Finishes with slightly bitter pine notes. I get a surprising cappuccino note on the aftertaste.

M- Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Easy drinker.

Quite a delicious and balanced IPA. Floral, complex, and easy to drink. A recommendable classic.
