Fresh sixer in Boston MA. Poured into a glass and A was wonderful, golden and very clean. This was highlight of the brew despite my nostalgia around it. S was weak malty flavor with light hops. T left much to be desired as it was certainly a pale ale to me, not an IPA. BUMMER. M was okay but nothing special and O it was disappointing. Light, flavorless IPA with a nice color as its best asset.

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
