Apparently, I'm in the minority on this ale. I bought a six of this and I'm on the fourth one. With so many great AIPAs out there, this comes in just average.
A- almost no lacing. Decent amber hue.
S- mostly it's the high alcohol content and maybe a little citrus
T- bitterness dominates. Not a surprise at 90 ABU but not much else. But it's a nice balance of hop and malt in the aftertaste. So, very bitter on the tongue but quickly fades after swallowing.
M- the best feature. Just the right carbonation, alcohol bite.
Overall, I guess if you live in the mid-atlantic states, it would be a good AIPA if you can't readily get any of the many great west coast AIPAs.
