Got this one on draft. Appearance was a medium dark gold with a thick head and few bubbles. Aroma was freshly broken pine needles and pomelo peel. Taste was mild but bright grapefruit with just enough hops to keep the malt in line. Mouthfeel was crisp.

Tried this at The Boatyard Grill in Ithaca, N.Y. About an inch of head with spotty lacing and a nice dark amber color. Taste is resinous and piney with floral notes. Overall great ipa.

A very good beer - this guy has a maltier backbone to subdue the astringent hops. The hops are still present of course but are balanced very nicely in this highly drinkable IPA.

Pours a golden orange, with some lacing. Aromas run the gamut--earthy, pine, floral at first, then citrus and tropical fruits coming out as it warms. Pineapple and grapefruit notes, met with a resiny, almost woody taste. Pretty standard degree of bitterness. Average ("balanced") mouthfeel.

The first time I had this, on draft, it seemed more distinctly fruity and floral. But out of the bottle it tasted similar to West Coast IPAs. Overall a quality beer at a gettable price.

Pours an almost clear amber with an inch and a half very well retained white head that left tons of lacing. Smells of grass, tropical and citrus fruits. Tastes of pink grapefruit, pineapple, floral notes, grass and sweet malts. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, slightly dry finish and mouth feel.
