This was suggested to us by our waitress at the Capital Ale House in Richmond. I was somewhat hesitant to try it, given my bad experience with another Legend product (the Lager).
Appearance: Clear, deep red appearance. Minimal off-white head that just barely stuck to the sides of the glass.
Smell: A different mixture of grassy, citrusy, "earthen" hops.
Taste: An interesting flavor with this IPA. There was a malty-smoky flavor that was distinctly present along with the crispness of the hops. Surprising, given the name of this beer.
Mouthfeel: The combination of the hop bitterness and the creamy smoothness of the malt made for an above-average mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Certainly leaps and bounds better than the disappointing Legend Lager I had, this pale ale was smooth and didn't have much of an aftertaste or residual bitterness.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased at Poseidon's Pantry Gourmet Grocery and Deli on Chincoteague Island, VA.
Pours an almost clear deep orange with a 2 1/2 finger off white head that becomes chunky as it recedes and leaves some decent lacing.
Fair amount of sweet malt in the aroma balanced by fruity/piney hops. Over ripe citrus and malt syrup.
Not as sweet as the nose, but still the malt shows through. Grapefruit, orange, pine, caramel, bitter grapefruit peel.
Medium-plus in body. Light carbonation, light syrup, and slightly warming.
A pretty good beer. Satisfying and an easy drinker. Well rounded. I would try this again.
Serving type: bottle
