Had a bottle at Mosaic in Astoria. Poured a slightly hazy orange. There was a wonderfully fruity citrus aroma that opens the flavor, but the beer gets a touch thin in the middle. A great clear grapefruit note that finishes the beer out. The hops character is clean and sticks with classic American flavors for a big, rich IPA.

fairly bright orange amber color with a modest, short-lived head that leaves moderate lacing

Floral scents, tropical fruits (tangerine and papaya) and toast on the nose. Big hop flavor with floral, herbal and citrus notes. Good lingering bitterness on a firm dry toasty caramel backbone. Hop forward but with a good caramel malt backbone.

Nice mouthfeel with medium body and light carbonation.

A tasty IPA. Worth checking out.

purchased out of the cooler at Table and Vine; best before March (hopefully 2012)
