Hazy golden orange with a clean white head. Piney, citrus hop aroma. Sweet, fruity flavor with a strong bitter finish. I could see myself drinking a few of these.

Had this tap during Day One of CCBW at Brixie’s. $4 pints as part of their special. Served in a shaker pint.
A: Pours a clear amber color with a solid white head forming on the pour. It leaves cascading waves of lace down the glass.
S: Nice sticky and piney hops. Bursts of light citrus and sweet dough malts.
T: Sweet berry and citrus fruit hops, more bready and sweet malts. Lots of pineapple and a nice piney finish.
M: Medium bodied, a little sticky, with a nice medium carbonation and some sweet and piney fruit on the finish.
O: Great balance between bitter and fruity hops and sweet bread malts. This reminded me a lot of Two Hearted which is never a bad thing.
Serving type: on-tap

Full flavored, tremendously bright feeling, and hugely drinkable, this is probably of the best "house" IPAs that I’ve had in a while. The hop bill just really delivers here, with a profile that is equal parts sharp, mellow, fruity, and bitter all at once. Fantastic stuff overall and this was a great way to kick off our first visit here.

Walking back to your Bridgeport flat at night; gripping your church key for the twit who tries to make off with the seventeen dollars in your pocket; you can’t help but reluctantly notice the city’s new cohort of young trollops multiplying across your back alley and front step alike. No corner goes unadorned as they mount themselves to the chipped, green primer on the avenues’ lampposts and entice you with their slim figures borne of a steady diet comprised of apricot flavored cigarettes and White Castle sliders. You’re headed home, but weren’t expecting to now. The boss told you to take a vacation - probably forever. Her immaturity, dim-wits, and newly purchased fishnets go hand-in-hand, so you invite her in. She calls you daddy, so you scold her and tell her to shut up. Nothing fits her right. The AquaNet hairspray she applied this afternoon as she rolled out of bed at 3:30pm has now cracked; flaking like the white stain on her black, loosely ill-fitting B-cup brassiere - thanks to genetics, she got at least two “A”s in her life. She needs a place to stay: you only have seventeen dollars, minus the amount you were planning on spending for dinner at the Bucky’s gas station. Again, she’s thin, rail thin; she would look fuller if she didn’t immerse herself in Tropical Agent Orange spray tan, which is nothing more than not-so-cleverly disguised Kool-Aid concentrate; sailors call it bug juice. Despite your efforts to engage her with offers of hand-rolled clove beedis and a tipple of Rittenhouse Rye, she immediately goes flat and reveals her insipid personality. The remnant aroma of what she smoked and ate last night had more character than the hoax of her projected imagination, which was nothing more than repeating punch lines from sitcoms and laughing first every time. With each sip, you wished she at least had the bubbly demeanor of a neophyte, but she bypassed the best part in favor of a feigned bitterness that faded as she lost interest. You follow suit upon finishing, but quickly realize you’ve committed for the remainder of the week; she’s staying five more days. You’ve been had, friend; you probably could have done a better job yourself. Look on the bright side; at least your dinner at Bucky’s exceeded your expectations: you still have your seventeen dollars and they carry Sculpin IPA in the icebox now.
