3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from nyrangersfan on BA - thanks, Steve! Pours a cloudy straw color, with fairly intense carbonation and some nice dank looking sediment. Very fulsome nose, with tons of dry, bitter hop character with an earthiness to it that over time lets loose some fruity characteristics. Fairly creamy mouthfeel, with slightly dry finish, just a hint of prickly carb. Flavors are very nice, citrus rind, a hint of pineapple, and spice. Good one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a golden yellow with no head and an aroma of pineapple, vanilla, and pine. Powerful aroma, but not especially pleasing. Flavor of pineapple, hops, vanilla, and papaya. Nice beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, tropical fruits, pine, vanilla, light starch, with some honeyed malts as well. Taste of pine, pineapple, tangerine, lots of tropical fruits, citrus, some toast, and a dry, bitter hoppy finish. Great hop, inspired me to go home and brew a citra wild.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Iron Abbey. Quite hoppy with a strong citrus flavor. Dry with bitter aftertaste. Last drop of pint tasted as good as the first. A solid performance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a yellow/golden color with a creamy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, as you might expect. Citrus and piney scents shine through. The rice does dry this out a little and really lets you taste the hops. I like it, but it’s average.

Bottle. Cloudy goldish amber. What a delicious aroma - spicy, citrusy, the beach. Lively. Flavor intensely citrus, lime and orange, bitterness almost perfectly balanced although I don’t mind it slightly off center. I just love the smell - woodsy more than piney, and maybe it’s just sentimental, but it smells like ... New Jersey, and not the part you’re thinking. The pine barrens, the shore. This should have been a Parkway Exit 0 release or something. Nice lacing. It’s a little thinner than I’d like. Flying Fish is really setting new standards with the Exit series. Exit 4 is excellent, Exit 1 was quite good and now Exit 16 - these are all better than anything they’ve done before IMO.
