Light amber pour (ontap) tan diminishing head, decent lacing, hard to smell due to all the smoke in this suburban Philadelphia bar, not too hoppy, decent balance, slight dry finish, very enjoyable, I ordered 2!

(Bottle) Pours orange amber. Green hop aroma with tones of peaches, pine, lychee, grapefruit and other citrus fruits. The malt is a bit syrupy and tiny caramelly. Fruity, hoppy flavour with tones of pine, oranges, grapefruit, apricot, pineapple and a small floral touch. Soft mouthfeel with a mega dry ending. Medium to full bitterness. Medium body. Nice.

great ipa. swells of the ocean as the flavor teases the tongue. smells floral and tastes like a spoon full of sugar with a bitter ending. great ending to a great beginning.

Sampled with Stegosaurus at Issac Newton. Copper Pour with mild hop aroma. Floral taste. Reminds me of 60 minute IPA blended well but a little short on punch. Still a good brew.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 Bottle. To me IPAs are all about aromas, and this beer has it in spades. A perfect balance of moderate smells of hops and malt. Notes of caramel, cookie and grapefruit immediately stood out. Hints of pine, dough and maybe a little cherry follow. Head is frothy with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is a clear orange/red. Taste starts out lightly acidic and is lightly bitter in the long finish. Palate is medium light, oily with soft cabonation. I can’t wait to visit this brewery next time I’m in LI.

Quite pale, strong fluffy head. One dimensional hopping, characteristic cascade hops are nice at first, but become a little overwhelming as things progress.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin head with decent carbonation. Lots of light and fluffy floaters in there. Big hoppy aroma with lots of resinous hops and pine. Some caramel malts also. Color is a fuzzy bright orange. Sweet and malty up front then the hops slap you in the face mid swallow. Big dry roasted peanut skin bitterness. I think that this is balanced very well. Dry with a little roastyness but predominantly big and hoppy. Little alcohol presece. Lingering bitterness and hoppy dryness. I like this brew a lot.
