12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a gigantic foamy white head. Too much carbonation. Glass was 3/4 foam. Aroma has a fruity, hoppy smell with a bit of malt sweetness. Taste is light grapefruit, sweet bready malt, and very light bitterness at the end.

Dry, grassy hop aroma. The taste: light hop resin, lemon peel, coriander, and parsley. This was fresh and really nice - one of the better NJ brews for sure.
