Pleased to be among first reviewers of this fine east coast tribute to west coast. In a blind test this did well, not surprised.
a) hard to argue with the light gold hazed body and the lasting creamy head that suds laces around the glass all the way.
s) Ample. Eastern LI style. Full nose of citrus and pine hops, juicy, fruity malts - almost EIPA.
t) ABV well hidden behind a flavor wall of juicy, varied hops. mostly lemon, grapefruit, fruity, pine balanced with caramel and toasted malts smoothing out in only a light bitterness that keeps it from being too sweet,
f) Mid body & carbs, nice ending, clean after juicy experience.
o) Like an EIPA more than a west coaster, more malty and candied.

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.

A: slight haze; medium gold in color; 3 finger ivory head that receded to a very thin cap; very nice lacing;

T: earthy for a moment, then floral gets added in; a bit of caramel in the background; finish is mildly bitter;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: good, but not memorable;

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).
