12 oz can.

Pours medium amber in color with good clarity. There was a small amount of yeast sediment at the bottom of each can that I had. Big, frothy, white head with excellent retention.

Classic grapefruit and pine aroma, akin to a West Coast-style IPA. Light caramel malts provided balanced flavor with a firm hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and well-carbonated, making it refreshing.

This is an old school IPA, and a good one at that. It's bitter but not too biting and dry. Easy to drink more than one of these.

My first experience with this brewery.
Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a modest frothy head. Average retention with light lacing.
Nice fruity aroma that feels evokes tropical and pitted fruit. This includes pineapple, peach, and nectarine. Hints of caramel malt and bread.
The taste, on the other hand, focuses more on tangy citrusy flavors. Grapefruit rind and orange pith sit atop a dry crackery malt palate. There is a significant hops bitterness that is somewhat unbalanced against the other flavors. The hops flavors also include lemon seed, peach pit, pine and grass. A bitter, resiny and grapefruit pith finish caps things off.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and drinkable.
Nice solid classic IPA. Despite the unbalanced bitterness, it was good drinking all around.

12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Pours a nearly clear copper hued brew, a most excellent white head on top that drops a curtain of lacing down the sides of the glass. Ample hop bitterness has a nice bite, a good amount of citrus rind and pith flavor as well as some grassiness mesh well with the malt character that has a slight caramel tone to it. Well balanced with a slight notice of alcohol. Good drinking all around.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, beige/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pine, some citrus. Taste is the opposite of the aroma, juicy citrus up front, light pine in the background, mild bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

On tap at Big Chill (Indian River Inlet, DE). Pours an orangey-amber color with a decent off-white head. Initial impression is dank pine resin with undertones of citrus rind and a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is somewhat bitter, but not overly so. An OK IPA, but not destined for greatness.

Poured on tap at Big chill Beach Club into a clear cup.

Faint creamy off white head, slightly khakI in color. Pale amber orange body color with a little carbonation.

Small sensing pine hop with quite a bit of bitterness on the nose. Mild caramel and fairly basic.

Palate is rather old school ordinary. Plain bitter sort of hop grass, particularly on the finish. Decent mouthfeel but excessive pith and pine almost chemical rath on the tongue. Faint touches of caramel but really smacks of bitter hot green hops.

Hoppy yes, but not in an enjoyable way really, and not fitting in too memor able in a crowded IPA field.
