Pours a medium, crystal-clear shade of amber. Citrus/herbal hops hit the nose with a faint hint of malty sweetness. These notes continue into the taste with a surprising crispness added in. Drinkability is above-average for this kind of beer,
I'm fortunate enough to get semi-regular samplings of PtE this far east. Seek it out if you're ever in Philly.

Head was nice and it was consistent with the appearance. It maintained the head for an average amount of time
Smell was very mild with the obvious presence of hops.
Taste was too bitter for my palate, I did not enjoy the hoppiness. This also was reflected in the mouthfeel. I had a bitter aftertaste for more than a comfortable amount of time after I swallowed.

Big thanks to ehammond1 for sending me my first bottle!
bright crisp looking copper colored body with a generous three fingers of thick white suds. loads of lacing and ring after ring around the mug as the beer dwindled. huge tropical fruit in the nose, i could smell this all day! pineapple, mango, lemon, orange, grass, malts and toasted biscuits. taste is very pineapple forward. bright, crisp and juicy all describe what i taste, very fresh tasting nectar of the gods. a little sticky pine oil on the inside of my cheeks helps to keep the sweetness under control. a dry bitter finish is quickly washed away by more juicyness and leaves me wanting more. one bottle of this is not enough and only lasted as long as it did because i was taking notes. i'm a believer!
