Appearance - straw golden yellow, fine head which dissipates rather quickly.
Aroma - floral and citrus layered over a pleasant honey sweet maltiness.
Taste - grassy and citrusy to start followed by a light malty sweetness and a nice hop finish with just an edge of bitterness.
Mouthfeel - smooth and round with a sweet soft finish.
Overall - very nice IPA with a great balance of malt and hops neither of which is over stated. Very drinkable.
Serving type: bottle

3.7/5 rDev +2.2%

Pint on draft aboard the Cross Sound Ferry, headed from Orient, N.Y. to New London, Conn.
Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a short white head. Carbonation is moderate to low. Leaves some pretty good lacing on the way down.
Aroma: The aromas are kind of subdued for an IPA, but I get a sense of hops, grapefruit, lemon and citrus.
Taste: The taste follows the nose - a bitter grapefruit taste followed by a somewhat piny finish.
Mouthfeel: This beer has a nice depth for an easy, summery IPA.
Overall: This is a pretty decent standard IPA. I don't want to describe it as "entry level" but it's a solid IPA for folks who don't do IPAs with heavy frequency. It's not a hop bomb or an especially complex beer, but it's nice for what it is.
Serving type: on-tap
