4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a translucent dark orange with a large white frothy cap on top. Great retention; lots of sticky lace rings left behind. Nice clean citrus aroma wafts out. Lemon, orange slices, leafy hops. A good bit of zip to this.
Crisp, refreshing feel. Drinks very nicely. Great bitter snap that is full of flavor. Bitter citrus rinds, a touch of pepper, leafy herbs - that transforms into a a mellow sweet finish of honeycrisp apples and tangerine.
This one really surprised me. It was so easy to drink and had a great balance of mild bitterness with a touch of sweetness. I will make sure to get some more of this. Just remember this isn’t supposed to be Sculpin or Stone IPA and the like, so please don’t review it like it is. This is an EIPA, and a good one at that.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass in a pub in Gettysburg, PA. For bottle cap collectors the cap is awesome, a flying skeleton fish with airplane engines attached. This beer is a slightly murky golden yellow colored beer with a small white head. The brew has a mild hoppiness that was very refreshing. This is a light bodied beer with mild carbonation. a surprisingly nice find.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from a bottle at York, PA. Fair. Slight citrus hop nose. Slightly sweet, moderate bitter taste. Average carbonation, body is slightly thin, silky mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, lemon zest, orange peel and light spruce. It wasn’t bad for the only IPA available.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Toasty amber body with medium head. Nose is quite hoppy with citrus notes. Taste is also quite hoppy, lots of pine and citrus with medium carbonation. Also nice warming, caramel in the finish. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chris and Alisa brought this one back from a trip to New Jersey +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was crystal malt, grapefruit, lemon and a touch of pepper. The flavor was bitter and malty with a noted crystal malt presence and grapefruit, caramel and vague fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Can - hazy light orange with a bubbly medium head. Piney hop aroma and taste. Also some citrus in there. Very east coast IPA the sweet finish. Not very bitter.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: June 13, 2015... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: Just returned from Liberty Day fireworks... APPEARANCE: light, bubbly body, with a hint of obscurity; white head is creamy and leaves lacing that resembles hedgerows; thick and consistent--a promising start... AROMA: immediate slap of caramel to the nose; some yeasts that blanket the hops with an earthy, funky distinction; what does slip through is soft citric hops, approximating lemon zest... PALATE: vivid, active on the back tongue; a balanced, medium-bodied experience... TASTE: subtle spice and balanced malts/hops make for an understated profile initially… caramel malts outstrip the hops, making this a sweeter IPA... OVERALL: as the label establishes a more British approach, with an easier drinking, maltier version of what the hop head is expecting; melon and flowery hops reward late—this is a solid beer with a decent ABV%...

Lightly hazy dark golden colored body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Mild lemon and orange zest, florals, light grainy malts, and just a hint of grass. Meidum to light bodied, moderate carbonation, mild bitterness.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Muted hoppy nose and flavors. Maybe it was an old batch, but all the hop/IPA flavors were flat and muted. Very disappointing, compared to other Flying Fish beers, such as Red Fish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a orange tinged Amber with white head and lace. Aroma of carmeled malts and light citrus. Taste was more malt heavy than hoppy. A light citrus note over carmel malts. Not a hop bomb and that made it more enjoyable for me.
