On tap poured into a snifter. A hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was somewhat muted with pine and tropical notes. The taste was reminiscent of a standard IPA: the above notes underscored with a firm bitterness and a clean finish. Medium bodied with a standard mouthfeel. Overall a great representation of the style.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a custom Samuel Adams pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a slight cloudy, amber to light copper color with a three-quarter inch, white head, low retention, and little lacing.
S: Aromas of nectarine and peach, as well as caramel malts.
T: Remarkably dry. Little fruitiness despite the head. Flavors of caramel, bread, and cocoa. Maybe some apple. Solid but not overwhelming bitterness; really make a nice counterpoise to the malts.
M: Medium bodied with modest carbonation.
O: In flavor characteristics, almost reminiscent of a brown ale, but a very interesting, flavor forward interpretation of American IPA. Glad I have a few more.

From the can, it pours hazy gold color with a 1-2 finger foamy beige colored head that faded in average time and left good lacing. Smells of lemon zest, orange peel, faint grapefruit, biscuit, graham cracker, mild caramel, some floral notes and earthy spices. Nice balance and solid IPA components.

Flavor follows suit with nice citrus notes, caramel, grapefruit that’s lightly bitter, sweet malt, the graham cracker and biscuit from the nose plus some piney notes. Very smooth and sessionable.

Pours orange with a finger of head and touch of cloudiness. Satsuma and grapefruit on the nose, and a big hit of Citra citrus and bitterness on the initial sip. Malt sweetness anchors the mid-palate. Saturated with flavor.

Can at R.F.D. Perhaps mid-Atlanric IPA needs to be a new category. Not as hoppy s the NW, not AS juicy as New England.. mellow but flavorful.. Not a palate crusher.

On draft. Served in a goblet glass. Pours a darker caramel body, slight orange hue, one finger white head, fair retention, bits of lacing. Smell is toasted malt, a bit of toffee, caramel sweetness, bit of citrus and pine. Nothing much going on here, but it does smell and taste like a red ale with a good malt presence, toffee sweetness with a fair bit of a hoppy background with the citrus and pine, slight resinous finish, mild-moderate bitterness. Body is medium-lighter, good carbonation, fairly bitter on the backend. This, I think, hews more towards a hoppy amber/red ale rather than a classic IPA.
