Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a little sting from some fine carbonation. Creamy malt base. Sweetish pale malt, prominent but dominant. Nice airy hops - pine with a little fresh orange. Mild bitterness and mild minerals. Fresh finish. Nicely joined up. Very drinkable.

poured from bottle into the most expensive glasswear money can buy! Okay, this is a very good IPA in the "East Coast" tradition. Quite sweet, but nicely balanced. This is an easy drinker!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh... was hoping for something as good as Coronado’s Idiot IPA, but this falls woefully short. Pours a rich orange/copper color with a quick disappearing head. No lacing. Aroma is citrus, and initially smells really good, but as it lingers it almost has a fermented/spoiled smell that carries through in the flavor. Last 6pack if Islander I’ll be buying, unless they dramatically lower the price.

On tap...it was an excellent substitute for the 60 minute that was tapped out shortly before I arrived! Paired well with chorizo. Slightly copper & cloudy...a pungent hop aroma mixed with a pleasant malt scent. Taste is similar to aroma with an added creamy palate. Spicy hop aftertaste and good light lacing. Yum

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium gold, with a white head.
Very hoppy aroma, spruce, apricot, resin, grapefruit peel, pineapple, caramel.
Of-dry, medium bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2.
The taste is likewise hoppy, with resiny notes and loads of spruce and tropical fruits. It does, however, feel a bit tired, as I pick up a few oxidized notes. The malty backbone and the structure is there, but it could have been a little bit fresher. (2013-01-05)
