look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Flattish copper. Not my favorite.

Smell: Grapefruit and pine. Could use a bit more of each. I like the smell overall though.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour pine and grapefruit. A decent flavor, but not the most assertive. Would work well at a BBQ. Mouthfeel is definitely average, especially for an IPA.

Overall Drinkability: Not my favorite, but I can see it becoming fairly popular. An easy-to-drink IPA.

Poured from can (!!!) to standard pint glass. Best by 10/05/12:

Pours a pale copper gold with a finger of lively, but pretty dense, slightly off white head. Tons of nice, pinpoint beading but no real lacing which surprises me... could be the glass I suppose...

The nose is pretty soft - some nice grassy bits and dingy citrus, a touch of sweet malt, mild honey note, certainly balanced.

Sort of strikes me as more an English IPA. Not a hop whollap, just a nice bitter hop profile that has the full support of a tasty sweet bread malt backbone. I like it.

Highly drinkable. Goes great with pizza. I'd recommend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Orange, slightly hazy. A finger of persisted head. Well laced.

Smells of citric, orange hop favors, caramel and biscuit malt, slightly sweet.

Taste is on the sweet side with a substantial caramel, toffee malt base. Some mild elements of hop flavor try to punch through. I'm getting oranges and citric pith, there is hop bitterness midway through the profile, but it's quickly overwhelmed by the malt. It's too sweet for my buds.

A little disappointing from what is usually a strong lineup from the brewery.

12 oz. can poured into a Duvel tulip; swirl-by date on bottom of can: 2-11-14. Deep amber body with a bit of red tint. Two finger dense tan head that has excellent retention and good lacing.

The aroma is not very strong, but is similar to many east coast IPAs: light citrus hop notes with a strong caramel malt base.

The flavor is close to the aroma. Citrus hops are primary driver in the flavor, especially grapefruit, with more pine than in the flavor than in the aroma. Strong, solid, caramel malt base.

Medium thickness in the texture. Overall, a very good take on the east coast IPA and very drinkable.
