Picked up from the brewery a week or so ago.

A: The beer pours into my Otto's pint glass golden brown in color with around a finger or so of white head. The retention isn't great, but the beer bubbles really nicely. A crystal clear beer that looks very inviting.

S: Really big citrus aroma with a nice amount of pine underlying. There seems to be a decent amount of malt teasing the nose as well. It smells a bit muted, and certainly much lighter than the style or ABV lead on.

T: The taste is much more in line with an Imperial IPA! Certainly a big caramel maltiness lends some sweet notes to an otherwise citrusy and piney IPA. Really sweet, with a balance that is all East Coast (you West Coast Hop Heads should probably steer clear as the hops are not the key focal point).

MF: Medium body with a below average carbonation. Really drinkable, the ABV is hidden really well and the dry hop finish keeps you coming back for more.

O: Really nice offering from State College's only microbrewery. You can't go wrong at only $4 per 22oz bottle!
