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.

look is a pale yellow lager like appearance, - smell has an alcohol liquor smell with hops - taste is a very dry extremely dry boozy hop fueled in your face start lots of pine and sap with a quick crash, feel is of moderate carbonation lingering aftertaste with a dry finish, dry throughout, what type of hops creates this dry feel?

L - moderately hazy glowing orange. Fluffy head with good retention.

S - sweet malts and citrus. Stale pine.

T - thin hops pole through in addition to the nose. Pretty typical malt-forward IPA. Taste seems a little thin. Lacking that punch.

F - surprisingly light for 7.5%. Has some of that syrupy texture, but not much.

O - an OK IPA. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

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

A suprising amount of hop bitterness.

Like it. Sort of seems like a cross between an English style India Pale Ale and an American IPA. Will purchase again. Seems like you can't go wrong with an ipa if there's a picture of a fish on the label!

Not much from the nose, but pleasant amount of bitterness on the palate. Medium copper tone and nice lacing on the glass. Nice carbonation leads to relatively thick mouthfeel for an IPA
