I had this from a bottle. Was really good. Nice full nose of hops coming out of the glass without sticking my nose deep in. Great smooth balance of hops, not harsh or sharp.

Good head and decent lacing. Nice yellow-gold color. Aroma of pineapple and some malt and other assorted citrus. Bitterness is balanced well. Taste is balanced well between hops and the malt. Pineapple, citrus and a little pine make this beer nice and even at 6.5 ABV, quite sessionable.

Semi-transparent gold with a tight white head, decent retention and lacing. Slight citrus aroma on pour followed by floral hops. Taste is a typical east coast IPA, balanced malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Nice nutty taste from the malts, reminiscent of almonds and brazil nuts.

Mouthfeel is heavier than I would like, but not too heavy. Aftertaste is bitter nuts. Not bad, not sure if I'd seek it out as there better options.
