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!

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2016 On tap at Beacon DC. Dark amber with a small cap. Strong bitter aroma. The same goes for taste. Taste a bit sharp with some hidden citrus notes. Bitter aftertaste

On tap at the Churchkey, DC. A dark copper/gold body topped by a thin white head. The nose is like an astringent East Coast IPA with a dank pineyness thrown in for good measure. Up front there are some nice IPA elements here - tangerine, grapefruit rind, molasses and roasted malt. I like rindy IPAs but there is something a little unpleasant going on here. I wonít be back for another

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Translucent copper with persistent white head. Lots of resinous pine. Caramel malt. On the bitter end of balance for sure. Clean and well-made.

Can at some shitty corporate Italian place in Crystal City, VA (or MD? Fuck, I donít know.)
Wasnít particularly in the mood for an IPA but I wanted to recover the DC tick that was stolen from me when Capitol City moved its operations out of DC proper. Aggressively c-hopped IPA with plenty of caramel malt. Yeah, think 2005. Is this what passes for good beer on the East Coast?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden-orange, thin eggshell head, film that stays. Aroma is strong lemony evergreen (refreshing), toasted malt, touch of light caramel and grapefruit, hint of tropical fruit (passion fruit). Body is medium-light, oily, with some gritty texture, moderate coarseness and soft in carbonation. Flavor is bitter pine, nutty pine nuts, slightly astringent, citrus rind. Quite astringent after a while. Overall: too harsh/bitter, otherwise a good pine-oriented IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a musty grains with an earthy grass and a bit of a pine bite coming through. Flavor is similar with lots earthy grains, musty pine, some grass and a bit of bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good IPA with some somewhat interesting citrus and pine aromas. Overall, though, it just struck me as straightforward and drinkable, an IPA that Iíd be happy to drink at a bar or a ballpark without thinking too much about it.

Cheers Gene for leaving a 355ml can. Shared on 26th Jan 2016 at a Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Misty dull orange body, off-white head. Piny hops all the way with this beer, dominate both the nose and taste. Some citrus notes also within the flavour.
