Pours a golden color with a puffy creamy head. Nice retention.

The aroma is floral. Grapefruit and pepper seem to dominate the profile. Some honey sweetness.

The taste is a little more bitter. The grapefruit is still there but it also brings the rind as well as some pine notes. A substantial hoppy flavor. The malt is bready with honey sweetness and does a nice job supporting the hops.

Moderate feel with tingly carbonation. Definitely bitter on the palate but there is enough sweetness from the malt to offset. Finishes slightly dry.

A well made IPA. The hop profile is not my favorite but it is still good. Good to see Greeport bottling their brews.

Thrilled this is available in bottle form for $11.99 a 6er. Attractive packaging.

Super oily, hop bomb, slightly flat sweet malt, hops vicious enough to overcome sweetness. Refreshing, throat clearing resinous. Marmalade with tons of fresh cut pine. Hops linger, slightly sharp, cuts over sweet malt. Better on draft, not quite as boisterous, slightly syrupy in bottle, still, excellent and will buy again. The hops kill on this and are not to be missed.

12 oz bottle, w/o freshness info to be had..Created "out east"... west coast style IPA

Pours clouded light, near golden amber...great looking tiny bubble head, froth, low sheeting, fine lacing splattered high up on the glass

Citric/pine nose on the pungent side

More of the nose on the palate, fresh and again pungent grapefruit, tropical fruits and pine resins..

Nicely done - bright and tasty. West coast IPA all the way. Well worth a try

Got a Growler from Bullseye beer distributor in Smithtown. Poured into a pint glass.... the look of this beer is beautiful.... copper color but you can see right thru it like water... lots of bubbles which made a beautiful head that stayed for a bit but laced away. Great smell that is the quinquennial iPa smell. gave off a very hoppy smell.. pine smell all the way.... beautiful balance so it's not too dry, too heavy... very much hop taste right up front.... but if your drinking an ipa than that's what you want. Mellows out a little... little bit of an aftertaste but more so that you want more of it... I am not an IPA fan but I am slowly getting there. There are 1 or 2 other IPA's I feel are slightly better but that's not a knock... I was pleasantly surprised by how great this tasted. I will definitely recommend and look to drink again.

Darker than expected and much maltier than expected too. But there's just enough of a hop bight to offset that sweetness. Minimal bitterness. I agree with the "stale pine" comment. Well balanced, though. More of an English Style IPA, and a fine one too. Very drinkable.
