Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

mansquito (3998) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 500ml ($7.50): Pours a very pretty orange with an excellent, well-formed, white head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. It is up there with the best IPA aroma’s I have ever sniffed. While this beer is far from hop slaughter, the hops are pronounced and diverse in this beer. The bitterness is mostly around the middle, but they linger nicely for a bit. Body is really light. Maltiness is pretty light. The aroma is the high point of this beer, but everything else is commendable. Even the burps taste good.

GIJOE (858) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 1, 2015
On tap at When Pigs Fly in Kittery, ME. Pours a lovely dark amber with a thin white head that fades quickly. Nose is rich cidery sweetness with a blast of citrus and floral hop notes. Taste is beautifully balanced. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OldGrowth (2876) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pint at Moan and Dove, Amherst. Good aroma sweet. Citrus, grapefruit, though on the rind side of grapefruit. Clean golden orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish, it’s nice, a little narrow as far as it range with aroma and flavor , all grapefruit rind.but drinkable gives me a two hearted thing,

This one’s an easy five. You’re not going to get much better than this. It does everything right. Very tropical. Lot’s of pineapple and mango. Big citrus as well. This is the kind of ipa that makes you take a step back and say "holy shit that’s a good one" I love when I get my hands on an ipa that brings me full circle and shows me why I love the style so much. I think there are a lot of good ipa’s, and a handful of great ones. Most seem to get lost in the shuffle, but this one definitely stands out and I’ve heard so many good things that when I saw it immediately grabbed a bottle so I could try it. Glad I did it really is an excellent beer for true ipa lovers.

Thanks to dhatton, pours orange with a touch of haze and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, light pine and hint florals...all hops. Taste is moderate bitters with a little sweetness underneath. Excellent IPA.

Beermack (716) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle thanks to thepatrickman - cheers! Hazy dark gold. Great orange, floral, and papaya leading on the nose with some light resin and shortcake. Big juice in the taste: tangerine, darker blood orange, a mix of dank and lighter tropical notes, moving on to light resin and a big grapefruit/lime bitter kick. Shortcake and light caramel represent the malt, frames the hop character rather than balances it. Long and slightly dank tropical finish with lighter floral notes lingering too. Cracker.

Wonderful nose. Poured golden with a fluffy, sticky head. Citrusy, piney, just about what you would call perfection in a bottle. Wish this was easier to get! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I could drink this all day. Great fruit nose, hoppy taste but malt balances well and isn’t a bitter bomb. Mixes fruit and pine really well.

Love the aroma, reminds me of the even more refined Dinner. Great fruity flavor, little bitterness. A slightly less refined version of Dinner overall, and a great daily drinker until Dinner is more available.
