Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking glazed over pale orange color with a thick foamy white semi-finger's worth of head that slid off at a moderate pace. Lace seemed to run here and there.
The aroma had a nice sweet spruce to evergreen hop contour, very fresh and clean with a nice sturdy clean cracker-esque malt bill coming about.
The flavor took all of the prior mentioned aromas to lean in to the sweetness of it all and pop in a slight hop spice to ride into the aftertaste fairly nice.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Finish had just a hint of stickiness, acceptable, but not burdensome.
Overall, pretty good as an AIPA, and perhaps one I could come back to if offered.

Picked this up today while visiting my parents back on Long Island. Poured into a Brooklyn pint in my childhood kitchen. Starts with a big white head that doesn't last . Features a cloudy golden body and a nose of herbal hops.

Nice balance in the sip with more of a noble hop bite matching up against the medium bread malts. Bitterness isn't high but does show staying power through the finish. Not overpowering but satisfying enough for what it is. More mellow than a lot of the style, this is tasty enough but no hop bomb.

- enjoyed a few tap pours of this over two weeks. Pale cloudy pour with prominent citrus hop nose. Sufficient malt support for a fruity hop profile makes for a refreshing, enjoyable draught. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth.
Perhaps the bottle experience is distinctly different (based on other reviews).

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.

Pours a light golden, decent head and lace. Mostly fruity and citric aroma. The taste also was on the sweet and citric side, very tasty and with a moderate hops profile. Medium to light mouthfeel, pretty smooth and easy drinking.
A nice solid IPA, non complex and unspectacular, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hapy to support a local brewery.
