3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013 vintage. Growler from Buy Rite in Cranbury, NJ. Pours a pale yellow gold color with a small bubbly white head. Big citrus hop aroma is redolent of pine needles and grapefruit. Crisp toasted malt flavor has complex spicy citrus hop domination. It’s all about the Citra hops here. Wonderfully complex and flavorful.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 Tap at Pour house last week, clearish gold pour with a medium white head. Aromas and taste are very ashy, grainy, pretty much no citra present in this one. My least favorite from Carton so far which kinda sucks since this nj brewer has been solid up to this point. I think this one was held onto way too long by the bar or the lines werent properly ran before serving so I will wait to try again then give a better rating. Cheers

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Scott’s. Poured a golden yellow with a lasting foamy white head. Aroma is loaded with a slight spiceyness, rye and carrow way seed, hint of cat piss. Flavor of dry hop cones, slight rye, wet crusts. Meh.

Growler from Spirits Unlimited (Pt. Pleasant, Nj) FRESH, hoppy aroma. Light yeollowish pour with a thin white head. Very drinkable ale! The rye notes are impressive. Overall, another outstanding offering from an up & coming local brewer!
