Falls under the category of very nice place with moderate to mediocre beer.

They are new so I will give them the benefit of the doubt.

Golden straw, foamy head, aroma has sweet malts in the forefront. Citrus is the only hop characteristic I smell.

Smooth and crisp, would be an easy drinker. Nothing major off, but nothing bringing me back form more.

On tap at a wedding surprisingly. Pours a translucent light Amber color and very little head. Some lacing. Light citrus hop notes with some toasted malts. The taste is citrus and slightly dank. A bit onion and garlic too. Good amount of bitterness. Finished with the dank hops. Very little alcohol presence. Light mouthfeel. Crisp. Overall, pretty decent IPA.

On-tap 5/8/2015 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of strong citrus fruits, caramel and some spice. The hops presence is very subdued. The malt character is hearty and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, not the best representation of style, there are definitely several other choices in the style that I would pick first.

Not much going on here. Expected more of a splash from a "newcomer" than this tame mediocrity.
