Very delicious fruity smelling ipa. I tried it because they were out of dogfish head so I figured I'd give it a shot. Wow I was shocked at just how good this ipa is! I'm a beginner when it comes to ipa's and beer in general really, but man I get alot of pineapple and some grapefruit with just a little pine on the back. I will definitely keep this in my fridge I need to try their other beers.

A - poured into a pint with a burnt orange color and one finger head. lots of carbonation bubbles.
S - Carmel, pine and citrus, a hint of grapefruit
T - Mild pine taste up front. citrus a little pineapple and a grapefruit character. not very bitter. very balanced with the malt backbone.
M - light side on the body and moderate carbonation. A little creamy and crisp.
O - A bit of a different twist not as high ABV. and not very bitter, an easy drinking IPA.
