Pours a "chunky" light orange hue...very reminiscent of its northeast cousin The Alchemistís Heady Topper. The nose belies itís hop bomb flavors. I admit Iím a bigger fan of West Coast style IPAs, but this brew is an amazing lesson on how the best East Coast IPAs got their reputation.

Amber color, a little dark for the style. Not too bitter with great balance provided by the caramel malt. Light to medium bodied, very drinkable, and the carbonation level is just right. Spruce, grapefruit, resin hops. Similar to Heady Topper in the sense that it packs tons of flavor while remaining very smooth, even sessionable.

rxeight (1526) - Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Can. Thanks Paul. Lemon and citrus. Lots of hops. Medium bitterness and Light body for a double. Iíd call it closer to a 1.5x IPA than a double.

50belair (2490) - Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Can. Milky yellow pour with a white head. Big grapefruit hop aromas. A nice tangy bite with loads of grapefruit hop notes. Good body and mouthfeel. A bit on the unbalanced side, but still tasty.

mfp13jr (152) - Glenville, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Poured into a snifter. Pours hazy gold orange with a rocky light off white head. Aroma is quick to bring fresh grass to the nose. Taste is grassy at first but tropical fruit, like tender mandarins, follow. Finish is dry and bitter on the tongue.

marcus (6788) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Shared at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy blonde with a foamy off- white head and a marvelousfloral hop aroma. There is a rich fruity bitter caramel malt flavor with a dry finish.

Uma das IPAs mais gostosas que tomei. Macia, espuma fina e muito saborosa. Desce mais leve do que qualquer outra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of pine and hops in this guy, and Iíll say it is one of the cleanest and smoothest finishes Iíve had of this style. Really nice, almost as good as abrasive ;)

WanderinCelt87 (188) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour from a can is a nice hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma is a little piny and floral but nothing too amazing. Taste is smooth with little bits of pine and floral but nothing too overpowering. Leaves a nice dry bitterness at the end.

Orangey lemony citrus smell. Medium hop taste with lemon and mild yeastyness in aftertaste. Medium carbonation with light foam.
