3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - Without having anything too special about it, this beer smells like a typical, quality East-Coast American IPA. Pine, flowers, caramel, and a hint of citrus.
Appearance - The beer pours a clear golden/light copper body, with a frothy white head. The lacing is quite nice, and the head retention is very solid.
Taste - This is a very solid IPA! Starts out with a very impressive hop bite, full of floral and citrus notes. A moderate sweetness follows right after, bringing a pleasant caramel feel to your palate. The finish is slightly bready, bitter, yet sweet. Very proper IPA! After a while you may even taste a hint of vanilla (not sure what causes that, though)!
Palate - Light-to-medium bodied, with a slight syrupness to it.
Overall - This is a solid sessionable IPA. Goes down smoothly, with a good balance between drinkability, bitterness, and flavour.

A gift from a neighbor, poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is orange-amber with a lingering cream colored head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, and light citrus. Palate is light. Taste is fruitiness, grass, and hops. Found it to be pretty good, but not over powering even at 7.3% ABV.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle at the Vault in Scranton! Smells of hopiness and a nice roastiness. Has a nice carbonation feel on the tounge but too hop forward to taste much else.

Probably best east coast IPA around. Perfect to style, big hops but not xxipa. Piny citrus and floral hop balance. Orange color not big head as enough hop aroma shot through. Fresh hop flavor not killer bitter nice lingering hop finish.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. I was surprised that I had not rated this before now. Orange-amber pour under a long lasting off-white head. The aromas are more subtle but also have some personality thanks to the grassy, earthy, and light citrus mingling with the toasted pale malts. Light to medium body. Something I did not expect in the taste was this sort of apple or pear flavor among those grassy and citrus hops. Mild lingering bitterness. Easy to drink.

Pours a hazy amber orange with a frothy, average size white head. Aroma of moderate to heavy hops, some citrus and a touch of malts. Taste has a heavy bitterness about it, quite hoppy as well. Enjoyable.

Light amber color, light lacing, small head, good carbonation. Strong, good aroma. Quality brew, very bitter, quality hops--for the hopheads, goes well with salty foods.
