12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden color with a good-sized, tan head of foam. It smelled of pine, roasted malt and mild citrus notes. Very malty tasting with a piney bitterness.

Cloudy straw color with a thin foamy white head; The aroma is full of hops; Interesting flavor, hoppy with a strong hint of something else, citrus perhaps; Smooth, mildly carbonated, leaves a light hops bitterness on the back of the tongue. Not bad, I certainly wouldn't turn it down if offered.

I like Coppertail's labels, not just on this IPA, but on their other beers as well. BA lists this beer as Freedive, but it is really Free Dive. Look at the label.

Nice IPA, hoppy and slightly bitter but good taste. Pineapple and citrus.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper color with a finger of foam; spotty lacing

Smell: Citrus tones of grapefruit and orange with a hint of caramel underneath

Taste: Caramel and nut flavors emerge first, with grapefruit and orange emerging; moderately bitter, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: More of an old school East Coast IPA here; well brewed but not very distinctive

Best-by Date: 3/11/18
Palate Contaminants: other beer

I guess I'm a little late on that best-by date, but that's what I get for not going directly to the brewery.

Looks is medium-dark gold. Not much head.

Smells like peaches and honeydew melons, although the sweetness is dialed back. Slight orange blossoms. Could use some more intensity, overall.

First flavor is grain. That's followed up by a light orange flavor. Moderate bitterness. It's certainly palatable, but it's lacking the range of flavors that the better of the style have.

Feel is under-carbonated. Medium weight. The aftertaste is mostly bitter, but it's not overwhelming.
