Poured into a 16 oz Samuel Adams glass, it left a 1" to 2" white head and had an aroma that suggested it would go well with food. A little thin, a little sharp but not the bitterness that I expected from an IPA. As it warmed it remained a presence on the table but not an overpowering one. I enjoyed this beer and will drink it again.

Poured a deep crystal amber with a pillowy off white head that lingered considerably longer than I had expected, and leaves extensive lacing as I drink

The nose is relatively thin, mostly a piny hoppiness, with a touch of citrus around the edges.

This is not an overly hoppy beer. Personally, I like that. Its flavour is definitely lead and defined by it's hops which continue that piny-citrus flavour from the nose, but I wouldn't describe it as an especially hoppy beer. There is some bready malt about 3/4 of the way through, but even that is a little subdued.

Good carbonation level and quite drinkable. I was pleasantly surprised by this brew (which made up for the disappointment that I felt with the Coastal Wheat which was also from the same sampler pack), and would drink it again. Not a game changer by any means, but one of the better BB beers I've had recently.

In a pint glass:

A: light copper body with a one finger white foamy head, clingy lacing

S: balanced between sweet caramel malt and citrus hops

T: bitter hops with floral undertones, somewhat malty here and there

M: medium, very crisp, sessionable, sweet hoppy aftertaste, bitter finish

O: pretty good American IPA that I would have again

Had on draft at The Beantown Pub 11/26
Served in a pint glass

A: This beer pours a clear, amber/copper color with a one finger of off white head. Head recedes quickly leaving minor spots of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is very mild grapefruit, and citrus zest, an underlaying caramel backbone.

T: Taste starts with a piney character that was undetectable in the nose. A strong caramel malt presence moves in and mingles in to the finish which is muted grapefruit hop flavoring.

M: Medium body, low carbonation, slightly oily with a dry finish.

O: Goes down ok, somewhat tasty, not too filling, nice kick, ok representation of style. Flavors were more muted than I would like in an IPA...however a decent beer and alternative to macros.
