This one pours a very pale orange color with a one finger white head. There is an ample amount of lace that clings throughout the glass. The aroma is citrusy and the hops waft up into the nostrils in abundance. The taste is, of couse, hop topped and citrusy as well. This is a good IPA in my opinion. It has the extra hops, but not so it knocks you over.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet.
Purchased as part of the Harpoon sampler.

A - Poured a slightly hazy orange color. The pour produced a head of white foam that subsided into a soapy film after the first sip. Excellent lacing spotted throughout.

S - Malty with hints of biscuit. Slightly floral with hints of citrus.

T - Malty with a slight biscuity sweetness up front. Finishes dry with a good amount of bitter hoppiness. The flavor really improved as the ale warms.

MF&D - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Went down well, just nothing too distinctive or noteworthy about this ale.
