12 oz bottle brought back from northern NY to northern IL. The aroma is more floral, piney and citrusy, yet the taste is drier, maltier and hoppier. A solid east coast IPA, hoppy but not near as citrusy as west coast IPAs, and with a more bitter finish.

12 oz can in Dublin, Ohio.
Hazy amber body with a white head that displays good retention.
Moderately hoppy, strong and bitter for an American IPA. Fruity and herbal notes with a touch of earthy. Hints of ripe apricots and pears.
Medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Hazy light gold with small white head poured into clear plastic cup. Bottled on 5/17/2017. Smell is wonderful. Tropical fruit, citrus, honey, hibiscus, hops, piney. Taste is very hoppy and floral with the tropical fruit in the back end. Soft mouthfeel. Excellent IPA. If it wasn't as pricey as it is, it would be a staple in my fridge.
