One of the best East Coast IPAs I?ve had. In addition to the perfectly hopped flavor, it has a freshing, hoppy scent with a hint of Christmas tree. So beautiful in a glass, you can?t resist drinking it!

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: very weak with a subtle piney hop aroma coming through.
Taste: A strong spruce and piney hop characteristics but felt like it was missing something.
Palate & Finish: It was also a little flat. The finish was abrupt.
Overall: I didn’t enjoy this IPA as I feel it was missing complexity but would like to try it again if I have the chance.
I had this beer in a can while visiting a friend in D.C. I purchased it to try a local brew that I couldn’t get back home in Wisconsin.

broomstraw dark tan brew with powerful enough festered malt and some hop. more pine and more cheap cigar all day in pie hole the beer has some butterscotch. silky enough body and mouthfeel to go against dirty flavor. probably better ice cold and good as it is.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Assertive pine hop aromatics, pours a clear amber, with a full white head. There’s a strong caramel malt flavor, which fades out to a long bitter finish, with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and pine. Slightly slick mouthfeel, maybe a touch undercarbomated. A nice solid IPA that I’ll be picking up again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very spicy, piney IPA. Pretty astringent so the mouthfeel wasn’t the best, but the flavor was great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can supplied by WillRunForBeer. Many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a dark orange with which a foamy whitish-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of roasted red peppers, grape seed oil, flax, pine bark, and sourdough bread. Tastes the same with the addition of American hops, wet cardboard, and cooking yeast. It’s ai’ght; nothing to write home about.

Can. Pours murky orange brown with a scant off white head. Aroma is fresh cut grass, citrus. This has a nice caramel backbone with a touch of smoke for bite and grassy hop. Very well balanced.
