Poured a slightly hazy golden from the can. Thin foamy head dies fast, but clings to the glass. First nose was strong with an immediate raw hop out front. Light syrupy citrus with a piney finish that lingers bitterly. Good overall IPA form.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom in Asheville. Pours a somewhat hazy yellow/orange with a nice looking thick white head. About right for style. Haziness/ cloudiness not enough to be off putting. Nose is tons of citrus and pine. Grapefruit and tangerine dominate. Taste follows- nice resiny notes and balance. Bit of dankness in there for good measure. Medium/ creamy mouthfeel. Finish is appropriately bitter- very drinkable. Solid brew if nothing outstanding.

Mep3222 (497) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Nice citrus grapefruit aroma and flavor with some pine in there as well. Bitter piney finish. Maybe slight light palate. Gets more towards the piney side the more I drink. Pretty good ipa, but not top notch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t know...admittingly, I am not much of an IPA person myself, but I just wasn’t a huge fan of the beer. It had all the markings of a good IPA, but I just couldn’t bring myself to like it. Maybe I’ll try the beer again down the road.

Ron (2550) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Can. Can pours hazy yellow with large off-white head with good lace. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavors of yellow grapefruit, orange juice, and pine with a nice bitter hop finish that is balanced nicely with a hint of sweet navel oranges. Very drinkable, Had at Patty’s family gathering at Hamlin Beach.

4 oz. sample at 21A. Hazy straw color with light foamy head. The aroma is citrus pith and pale grain mixed with light pine. The flavor has some caramel, sugar sweetness giving an almost candied grapefruit and orange flavor. The bitterness shows itself in the form of pine resin and is balance a tad with the sugary sweet malt. Carbonations gives a creamy feel while leading to a semi dry texture.

I guess about 3 or 4 years ago this would have been impressive for me. But with so many IPAs available in the craft beer market I just cant find anything that makes this standout. Nothing wrong with it but I would have no need to seek this out in a can on the East Coast.
