Pours a nice light orange, aroma is beautiful piney, resiney, grapefruity slight bread . Taste is dry hoppy bitter like a IPA should taste. Great offering.

This is a very intense yet very balanced IPA, with both the maltiness and the hops punching you in the face (in the best way possible). Lots of floral and pine notes and some faint citrus. Chewable and very satisfying overall.

Orange, Pine, and melon. Biscuit malt profile. A bit floral. Semi dry. Perfect amount of bitterness and sweetness. Very balanced. This single veers close to the dipa realm but I don't mind a bit. Really solid.

Picked-up a six-pack of cans at Luke's in Rockland for about twelve dollars. I have never seen or heard of this brew before. Pulled the trigger due to great BA reviews. Very fine brew, would buy again.
