Cloudy Amber color with a half inch head. Fruity bubblegum aroma. Bubblegum aroma stays with a piney bitterness. Thin body.
Overall decent IPA. Drinkable beer.

Much more malty than hoppy. Not what I look for in an IPA.

Much better beer in my opinion than how its being rated on BA. I am drinking a draft. A tad sweet. Right amount of hops. Great ipa.

On tap the brewery.

Pours amber with a decent head. Smells soft, but pleasant: caramel and biscuit malt, light hops evoking floral and citrus. Tastes like it smells: a bit tame, a bit run of the mill, but nicely balanced and very smooth.

I almost wrote that this was a "Standard issue east coast IPA," but that would have been wrong. It's hoppier and more assertive than the standards, like Harpoon's. But it's still a simple, boilerplate beer. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just don't come into it expecting something you've have had elsewhere.
