Pours a very light copper with a white rocky head. Agressive up front hop aroma. Strong resins of citrus, pine and floral smells dominate the aroma. The front end is very bitter, and while the body is a bit on the thin side, this IPA remains very well balanced. The middle and finish are smooth and dry. Definitely a crisp finish. This perfectly carbonated -just enough CO2 to bring out a snappy, bitter profile. A very nice IPA, even if its a bit on the thin side.

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
