Poured into a snifter glass from a bottle. Beer has a light amber color with decent head, but disappears quickly. Up front citrusy taste fades to hoppy bitterness. The bitterness seems to hang on the palate. Overall a very good IPA. Smells even better than it tastes.

Not sure if I got a bad bottle, but where were the hops?
Nose had some hop aroma, but the taste fell short. Drank more like a pale ale than an ipa. Solid body and mouthfeel, but lacked significantly in the hop aroma and flavor. Would pick it up if I was looking for an easy drinking pale, but for an ipa, I'm looking to perpetual from troegs.

Best by June 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Golden in the glass with quickly dissipating white head. Citrus and flowers in the nose, great aroma! Hoppy bitterness right out of the gate with citrus fruit and pine. Finishes slightly dry and bitter with grapefruit rind. Sweet caramely malt balances out the bitterness perfectly. A real east coast hop bomb! Medium body with light carbonation make this 7.5 ABV IPA easy to drink. An extremely well crafted IPA. Seek this one out!
