Can... Pours hazy and golden with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is subdued, bordering on nondeScript - maybe some green onion in here - maybe not. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced by English biscuit and pale malts mingling with a mild measure of citrus acidity and a moderate amount of rindy bitterness. I wish I could smell this. Can courtesy of ctipping!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a near clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma was mainly piney with a bit of backing grapefruit and grass. Flavor began with pine, which remained strong through out the beer as was backed by a combination of grain, hay and grass.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 The Lure:
Multifarious hoppiness emulates grapefruit, pine trees and lemons. Supporting malt is perceived, but without any distinctive signature. John Kimmich is the king of dry hopping on the east coast.
Tiny bubbles appear within the citrusy and peppery hops. Their rising bitterness reaches grass and resins, lingering beautifully, Soft biscuity and bready malts participate, as well. This recipe seems quite similar to Two Hearted Ale’s, so why isn’t this lauded as one of the country’s great IPAs? The perfume is as beautiful, the hop flavor is perfectly integrated to the cereals, the mouthfeel is suave, there are two alcohol points less, so more drinkability, and perhaps a tad more bitterness. This is brimming with quality and vivacity.
