A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate burnt orange + faint golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/orange zest, citrus/orange peel, and pine/resin hops over the light to moderate aromas of caramel + toasted + biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit, toasted, and caramel malts with light to moderate amounts of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith, citrus/orange zest, citrus/orange peel, and pine/resin hops which contribute a just shy of moderate amount of bitterness which fades away slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Enjoyable old school East Coast style IPA - kind of a throwback but definitely a beer that I could have again. Drinks pretty easily and hides the alcohol well.

Cool orange pour, lots of citrus pulp I think floating around? Is that what I see? Aroma didn't pop hops or citrus. Bummer man.

Taste did impart some citrus. Had plenty of hopping. Caramel malt notes in a large way. Thankfully not balanced, but minorly disappointing given that I'm usually impressed with this brewery.

Had on tap at the Pig & Fiddle. L: It pours copper gold under a 1” dense sudsy cream colored foam collar. S: Rich citrus aromas. T: A malty attack with citrus from the fermentation, from the hops and what tastes like added citrus. The three different sources of citrus enter the palate at different points adding depth and interest. F: Medium body and carbonation. O: A refreshing, citrusy IPA.

A great hops aroma. The flavor isn't nearly as intense initially as you'd expect, but there is a decent bitter aftertaste. A little bit of a floral touch in it.
