Pours a finger of head on a clear dark golden body.
The aroma is mild grain.
The taste is smooth blend of moderate bitterness and malt.
The texture is crisp.
A nice maltier IPA.

Pretty good beer I wouldn't drink back to back. But I would order time to time.

Had this on tap at Harpoon Larry's in Newport News. Pours a fairly clear amber with a small whitish head that dissipates fairly quickly. A very faint aroma of hops and a fairly watery mouthfeel dominate the beverage. it does have a nice malty, floral taste to it. Overall, an acceptable IPA.

Pleasant, deep amber color. Two-finger head of tight, white foam thins out after a few minutes, leaving some remnants on the glass. The beer's aroma is sweet--reminiscent of honeysuckles. I must describe the taste and feel as insipid, but only because of my high esteem for some of this brewer's other products. A good, drinkable beer, but not an eyebrow raiser.
