look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Pint glass.

A: Filtered, Deep Golden, with the slightest tinge of orange. 2 finger head that recedes to a 1/2 inch ring of foam.
S: Heavily of pine. Some grapefruit. Not as much floral or orange notes.
T: A hop-forward presence is matched by a bold, roasted malt backbone to create a larger flavor than expected. An assertive flavor that sits remarkably well on the palate. Doesn't leave too much of an aftertaste, and finishes dry.
M: Light to Medium bodied. Pretty crisp throughout.
O: A great staple from the East Coast that can appeal to many people. If a bar had this on tap, I would have it without a second thought. One of my favorite EIPA's.
