not sure how I never rated this, and I have a friend who just passed me in ratings so I’m out for blood, plus timing is good because I had a pint Friday night.
Clear and slightly brown (not yellow) with some lacing. Supremely well balanced IPA with a piney bitter hop nose that carries through the palate and finishes refershing and very clean. Great beer, if any of you didn’t already know that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Light chestnut pour with a slight haze and a pretty tall light khaki head. A bit of pine but mostly sweet malty aroma. Some citrus notes and caramel are the first flavors that hit you followed by vanilla and spicy herbs. Heavy malt rails. Rich texture and a mildly bitter, mostly sweet and pretty long finish.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 An golden orange colored beer with a small white head that leaves fairly decent lacing. The aroma has very nice, strong hops scents with a lot of pine, citrus, peach, and pineapple. The flavor is bitter at the beginning, with sweet pine and floral notes strengthening toward the finish. Very nice all around, quite tasty.

Pours vlear golden amber with a fluffy wheite head. Aroma is floral and citrus. It’s nicely carbonated, you can taste the yeast nicely, taste is hoppy, but balanced well enough with malt so that is does not take away from the hops, light, fluffy, and refreshing but has enough taste and body to be very flavorful.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank cool but not cold. Radiantly clear in the glass with not much in the way of visible carbonation, the body an orange gold. Head is lacklustre, a receding beach-wash of bubbles that is soon a mere memory. Bitter herbs, spruce and dandelion, lavender and vine-clippings, some burnt sugar, toffee and fresh baked white bread in the potently spicy almost medicinal nose, interesting. Fairly straightforward in the mouth. Some good tropical fruit comes through as does some crystal malt and wheat flavours. Mildly warming, alcohol is just a little evident in the piney, resiny swallow. Long linger of sappy resin and wood draws it out, dries the palate. Not much body, quite light and reserved in flavour, the carbonation’s gentle. A little disappointing up against their fabulous Maximus IPA. Oddly sessionable, though the ABV would make for a short one!! (12fl/oz, 7.5% ABV, #02482208, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Good overall beer. The aroma is full of piny hop notes as well as some citrus and malt smells. The appearance is hazy golden color with a decent head that goes away somewhat quickly. The taste is very nice. A good smooth beer that has a nice malty bitterness. It is a good beer to enjoy on the beach.
