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.

A - Pours a nice rich gold color, 1 finger of soapy white head, medium lacing.
S - Aroma is great, some dank pine, lush tropical notes of mango, papaya, and even some peach, a little pale malt.
T - Taste is good as well, just a little subdued you get more of the malt, slightly on the biscuit type, then some pine dry bitterness, and those tropical fruit notes.
M - Clean, balanced, not too try.
O - Good solid IPA that you could drink anytime.
