A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

Draught: This one pours a darker hazy orangish color. There was very little head on it. Nice aroma. Big whiff of pine hops. Some grapefruit and orange in the background. The taste is good. A nice hop bite. Mainly pine hops to the taste. There is a decent malt body behind it. Some earthiness. Nice

Darker than a "West Coast" IPA usually is, with deeper orange and ambers. Clear, with a fair amount of white head that shows moderate retention.
Bitter, acidic hops in the nose are immediately joined by bready, earthy, dry malts. The hop pungency is mainly citric, with a touch of pine on the end, especially with warming, where I also get a touch of alcohol. Medium strength of aroma, quite hoppy, but more acidic than aromatic.
Hard crystal malt and acidic, citric hops wash over the palate, with a strong carbonation that does its best to fight the high acidity and maltiness. Citrus and pine and very straightforward, while there is probably more malt depth than hop. Sweet, candied orange is produced from the malt and citric hoppiness, while some dry, earthy flavors linger on the finish, along with a fair amount of pine sap and heavy acid bite. Way too heavy-handed for my tastes, lacking any finesse or subtlety. Seems much more in the vein of the old "East Coast" IPAs.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can thrown in by Seth on an awesome trade. Aroma is muted apricot and papaya with some passionfruit and bitter grass notes as well. Pours amber with a nice frothy head. Taste follows suit. Papaya and grass stand out but not in a sweet way. Nice even bitterness. An easy sippin’ and unassuming IPA. Nice.

Consumed from the can. Smell is very citrus forward, pine and hop resin. Taste follows with added malty sweetness. Good beer, just a little too sweet for me.

Piney and resinous hops dominate in the immediate nose and taste notes. Finish is quick, clean, and draft-like. Easy to drink. I thought this beer really hid its 6.9% pretty well.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Malty floral hop aroma. Maybe a bit if stinky feet in there but not much. Full flavored and pretty well balanced. Prefer a bit of a different hop profile but still a pretty well made ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

halfonit (1324) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2013
On tap at battleship. Poured an amber/ yellow color with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Orange peal and tropical fruit flavors which turn to rounded, increasing bitter hop and resin notes with a biscuity malt backbone. This is a very good IPA on tap right now.

Canned on 08/19 - thanks JBPortland! Pours hazy butterscotch amber with a medium creamy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is pretty standard pine and caramel. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not too bad despite having a bit of age on it.
