Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

East coast unfiltered. i am biased as i prefer unfiltered IPAs. Tangerine and grapefruit aromas.
Smooth tasting more malty than hoppy. Easy to drink

Batch 036 so I'm not sure how fresh. 160z can poured in IPA glass was pale gold with decent head and lacing. Muted pineapple/citrus aroma, nice balance between malt and hops with a bitter finish. Very good solid IPA

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish tulip

L: Cloudy medium to light golden copper pour. 1.5 fingers of white head. Sticky lacing.

S: Grapefruit and tropicals. Bread/grains.

T/F: Lots of tropical fruit... pineapple and grapefruit. Lemon and grains. Some nice malt sweetness to go with a delicious and bitter hop profile... very nicely balanced. Moderately carbonated. Finish is resin and citrus which lingers for a few and invites another sip.

O: Delicious IPA, and super balanced/drinkable. One that I'd have absolutely any time.

Pours a clear vibrant yellow gold in color with a bit over a finger of white head that hangs around for awhile before fading to a thin coating. Aroma is pretty typical of a West Coast IPA, it has a mix of pine, maybe some light grapefruit notes, and some sweet malt. Taste hits the same notes as the aroma and adds a light-moderate bitterness. Medium-ish in body with moderate carbonation. Overall I found this to be a pretty solid IPA, I picked up this single can for $2 which seems like a great deal to me.

Uncharacteristic due to the big flavor upfront but the lack there of towards the end that you normally see with IPAs This is a different type of taste but one that i didn't care to much for.

Was able to find a single of this for $2.50 at Carnivores in Oakmont. Into a pint glass. Color is a bright yellow hazy with tiny floaties in the glass and a 1/2 inch of frothy head. Smell is piney with hints of grapefruit rind and sweet malts. Taste is bitter and herbal with little malt balance and some citrus zest for good measure. Stingy it leaves a bitter taste on the palate with each sip. Body is medium and its somewhat easy to finish.

Overall I am actually kind of stunned they are usually really good at making balanced IPA's and DIPA's but this one I guess is bitter and acidic on purpose? I really didn't like it enough to buy it again.
