Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. Best before day 47 of 2015 (less than three weeks old by my count!)

Appearance: Pours a beautiful orange copper body with a decent white head.

Smell: Nice citrus and tropical fruit hop aromas with a slight caramel sweetness from the malt.

Taste: Woody, citrusy, and tropical fruit flavors. Orangey taste from the Amarillo hops. A fair amount of malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly dry with just a touch of bitter aftertaste. Despite the maltiness, this beer does not come off as "boozy".

Overall: Very drinkable and classic East Coast IPA - the Amarillo hops really shine.

A really underrated IPA. Big citrus and hop flavor. Easy drinking as well.
