Poured into a small shaker pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of mild caramel malt with biscuit, citrus and pine hops, orange family citrus. Flavor follows with a mild caramel and biscuit malt, citrus, piney and slightly dank hops, orange citrus and light tropical fruit. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A nice East coast style IPA with a great balance of malt and hops. Hops are somewhat mellow, but have a nice flavor and leave a light, pleasant lingering bitterness. From notes on my August, 2015 trip to Delaware.

Great beer. Very well balanced with a bitter back end. Malty on the front and citrusy. Great beer!

Hazy orange appearance, lots of simcoe in the aroma, hoppy, soapy, bitter.

Well hopped ipa, substantial malt bill to it, darker, heftier than needed. Hops didn't impart a lot of specific flavors. Its clearly a second tier ipa at best.
