4/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a deep copper amber color with an even creamy, white head across the top with moderate to very active carbonation.

S - Cracker crust malt, moderate pine aroma with nice amounts of citrus rind to round out the hops.

T - Has a spicy malt character with pungent pine and citrus rind, ripe oranges, sweet citrus hopping. There's a appropriate amount of malt backbone to support the generous hopping. Tang on the front of the tongue with bitter citrus on the back. Finishes semi-dry and leaves a citric-peppery aftertaste that lingers long after the sip. The hopping leaves a crisp, bitter bite.

M - Mild prickly on the tongue with a medium body.

D - A nice example of an IPA, especially from the East Coast. This right coast concoction can holds its ground against the West Coast counterparts. Personally, I think it could pass as a West Coast IPA. This beer hasn't gotten enough credit.
