Mint. Iím getting a ton of mint on the nose. I have never had an IPA that was like this. Itís interesting. I literally swear Iím smelling fresh mint. Very fresh and pleasant. Itís really nice like I wasnít sure what to expect but Iím really enjoying the citrus and pine taste. Itís not a hop bomb but itís not weak. Itís just a really solid IPA. I will definitely be trying more Brooklyn beers, this one was phenomenal. Cheers!

This was a surprisingly complex IPA from Brooklyn. Tons of dark fruit flavors more reminiscent of a strong or Belgian ale. Nice notes of licorice and a bit warming; dark cherry and plum/raisin too. Pours a dark golden with a medium head. Part of a Brooklyn sampler 12-pack.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can poured into a snifter. Sweet citrus aromatics are quite noticeable up front; particularly orange and tangerine. Herbal notes come in late. It pours a clear orange with a soft, soapy abundant head. A moderate amount of lace is left behind with a cloudy surface and a medium soap ring. The taste is a well balanced medium sweet bitter. The beer is oily with a medium body and a soft, creamy carbonation. Flavors of juicy tangerine and peaches greet the tongue and it finishes clean and crisp with a herbal character. Thereís a rind and wax aftertaste.

From 355 ml can. Pours a clear honey-Amber with a pillowy white head and finely beaded carbonation. Aromas of fresh peach, crusty bread, citrus, honey and flowers. Taste is orange zest, peach, lemon, malt and hay all overlaid with a light sweetness. Crisp, slightly bitter finish with a lingering sweetness in the aftertaste. Really well made beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flowery white wine aroma. A bit of a bad alcohol aftertaste but maybe that's just an old bottle in Europe. Overall a good solid but not great ipa.
