look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: copper, amber. 1.5 finger head nice lacing. Dark color for an ipa.

S: mmm citrus and pine

T: east coast ipa taste where the taste is primarily pine. But there is a citrus undertone of mostly grapefruit and the caramel malt sweetness nicely balances the beer.

M: pretty light bodied

O: a great beginner ipa but I revisit it often... Because it's great. A perfect example of an east coast ipa

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Perfect Pour glass.
A: Aggressive pour yielded an inch thick creamy head that laced quite nicely. This IPA is a rich copper.
S: Earthy, mostly, but also citrus and slight pine.
T: Spice, earthy, floral, citrus and piney tones from hops balance nicely with biscuit and caramel flavors from malts. Finishes on the palate with a very unique taste; earthy is the word I would use I guess.
M: Medioum-bodied.
O: This a well thought out and well built IPA. Hop bitterness is present, but not does not takeover. Likewise, the malt is there but not that over-powering malt backbone that can take away from an IPA. Highly drinkable representation of IPA.
