Pours clearer golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is so delicious bringing sweet citrus big and juicy to the nose. Flavor is the same, big juicy citrus and zesty hops that never seem to bite. It is big and smooth, so nice as a single IPA.

On cask at Maloney’s. Dry and sweet thanks to the addition of locally grown honey. Nice mouthfeel.

Aroma is fantastic with brilliant grapefruit juice, orange zest, apricot and papaya. Just the tiniest hint of skunky weed. Pours bright orange (the bartender didn’t provide a head but I imagine it would be nice). Taste is big and bitter with grapefruit zest, lemongrass, lemon zest and Turkish delight. Legit!

Only a small sample at the AC Beer Fest, but I went back for more. Also my favorite brew this year. Pours amber with a white head. The aroma has a big hop presence with pine and citrus. The flavor is nicely hoppy and not too sweet.

Very flavorful IPA with a nose of grapefruit and grass. The hops are pronounced and the palate is average. I had this off the draft and I haven’t yet seen it in a bottle.

Aroma and Taste of pine hops, tangy grapefruit, citrus with some splashes of orange, some caramel malt for balance. A medium crisp body, good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, pine citrus hops with a bit of tangy grapefruit and orange flavor. A well balanced and enjoyable brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 On tap at Mexican Food Factory w annie, hazy glowing orange pour. Medium sized off white head. Very lasting with nice lacing rings. Aromas and taste of bitter juicy hops, lots of resin, grapefruit, wood, orange, pine. Sticky mouthfeel, medium body. Best hoppy beer made in NJ. Boat beer from Carton is a close second for me but this thing is so sessionable and juiced out. Hopheads best be searching this out.
