look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a room temp pint glass.

A-copper/orange color that is quite clear. A one finger off-white color head that fades and leaves mega-lacing.

S-pine dominates the earthy aroma. I'd like to pick up more floral and citrus, but this is an East Coast IPA. The aroma mellows as the beer warms.

T-hopped up tang from start to finish. The citrus that I could not smell bites me now.

M-suprisingly light for 7.3 abv. A slight resin stickiness with a bitter finish.

O-a solid IPA that I'll probably review more favorably with more takes.

Bottle from The Wine Seller. Pours a beautiful clear golden color with a fluffy two finger white head. Aroma of light citrus, a hint of pine, and some sweet pale malts. Flavor follows with light citrus on top of a backdrop of bitter dry pine in the finish. A small bit of sweetness from the malts balances this out nicely. Easy drinking with medium high carbonation. A nice, every day beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a DFH Snifter:

A-Copper hued a finger of head that is gone soon after pouring and leaves decent lace

S-pine, citrus, grapefruit all present

T-good, follows the nose, seems to improve as it warms

M-also good, nicely balanced

O-very solid IPA, another Southern Tier winner...

Poured out of a 12oz bottle, into a pint glass.

A: Copper, amber color, very clear. Head dissipates quickly, probably due to the high amount of hops oil. Some Brussels lace up the sides.

S: Piney hops resin dominates the aroma. Some earth hay and grass notes as well. A hint of caramel from the malt. Overall, it is quite complex due to the many hops varieties.

T: Initial part of the quaff is hops all the way. Bitterness lingers long in the finish with a hint of roasty sweetness.

M: This is a substantial beer. Medium carbonation. Oily and chewy.

O: Nice hoppy offering. This is an IPA lovers beer.
