The taste is bitter - sweet, oily, earthy, apricot, nectarine, peppercorn, light alcohol and toasted grass with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Oily mouth - feel.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2016 From a can. Gold color with a decent citrusy aroma. It is very easy to drink but I am getting a weird aftertaste that I don?t care for. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Easy going English style IPA. Very drinkable, and that counts for something. I typically don’t care for the under hopped English version of this style, but this alright. Quick3Beers (1229) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours from a tap a cloud amber with thin off white head. Aroma is a rather thin floral, and flavor is a lackadaisical citrus with little maltiness to speak of.

Bottle. Pours a nice head that already reveals its dry hopped aromas. Some malts (caramel, toast) and a nice spread of floral and citrussy hops. Recommended. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - JUL 30, 2014

Poured from bomber into pint glass
Appearance – The beer poured an amber color with a thick two finger white head. Just like all the other Berkshire beers I have had, the head has good retention with it eventually fading to give a great amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is sweet with nice lighter hints of hop aroma. The sweet is of honey and a light tangerine. The hop aroma is a nice blend of citrus (grapefruit and lemon) as well as a rather strong floral hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and lightly sweet flavor. These honey and bready flavors create a backbone for the beer. At the forefront a floral hop flavor is present. While the initial floral hop is light, it is soon met with some citrus and pine hop flavors. These give a nice bitterness that balances the sweet quite well. The beer bitters ever so slightly with the floral hop seeming to get even strong. In the end a rather pleasant floral spice is left on the tongue
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its carbonation level with a thickness that is slightly above average. It suits the floral hop and malty flavors quite well.
Overall –It’s a rather smooth IPA. While if you are looking for something very hoppy, this may not be your brew, but if you are looking for something very easy to drink with some nice flavors, this is a nice brew to go to.

Can pours avg gold. Nose some citrus and tropical fruit but more dank hop and some malt. Taste fleeting aromatic early, but then dank hop and grainy malt takes over. A little more grainy like APA. Mild bitter on finish. Not as aromatic as I prefer. 50belair (3643) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at the Friendly Toast. Clear medium amber pour with an off white head. Citrus hop bouquet. Taste follows suit with hints of tropical fruits. Not overly bitter with a big malty backbone. Tasty with a good body and mouthfeel. rjplumer (1091) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Sweet citrus and malt aroma. Hazy burnt amber color. Fine bubble this head. Not a lot of bitterness considering it’s an IPA. Mild caramel malt taste. Has a crisp refreshing feel. One of the smoother India Pale Ales I’ve had. A nice surprise.
