COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. This is a great IPA, the aroma is the star it is a fantastic blend of citrus, peach... like a fruit basket. The color is a deep gold with an off-white head of foam. It’s medium-bodied, bitter, ascerbic, fruity with some biscuit. Really good stuff.

Bottle, thanks to my lovely wife and the guy at Tribecca Whole Foods. Huge fruit basket nose, citrus and tropical. Light pine. Summer fruit salad. Sweet, brady malts, jammy fruits, orange marmelaide, tropical fruits, strong bitterness. Amber-orange, hazy, nice head. Quite bitter, rich, smooth. Very nice stuff. Nice malts. Bitterness fades nicely to a fruity dryness.

500mL bottle, via BottleSelect. Pours a pulpy orange color; brilliant, intricate lacing on this. Yes! Pours a pithy grapefruit and oranges in the nose; fresh and spritzy; lovely brightness here. Can I say this is actually TOO dry? I definitely haven’t said that in a while. Grassy, herbal tea, crazy amounts of jaw-clenching, punch, kickass citrus. Bone dry. Citrus, herbal, well-integrated goodness.

10/13/13. Bottle with big thanks to Lukaduke! Orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks. Really great aroma - lots of tropical fruit, some pine and citrus, and just enough doughy malts to be present without overwhelming or throwing a ton of caramel. Nice flavor, a good balance of bitterness and hop character/flavor. Plenty of tropical fruit, some citrus and pine, woodsy, doughy malt to balance it out. Delish.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Aroma of pine sap, resin and fresh grapefruit zest. Pours amber with a big frothy head. Taste is more subdued. Pine notes, sticky citrus, and a nice resin. Not too overbearing, just perfect. Nice number 100.

10/23/2013. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a thick off white head. Floral aromas with tropical fruit, pine. A hint of caramel, spicy hops and citrus. Very well balanced and the hoppy finish is just right. Awesome IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 After long last I get to try a bottle, and even better, one that’s less than two weeks old. There’s a nice malty backbone to this IPA and it’s very well rounded. Not too much sweetness, not too much bitterness, just the right amount of citrus. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste however that quickly fades. not unexpected though.

Taster at the source. Pours yellow gold with a pure white lacy head. Aroma is grapefruit. Flavor follows nose with floral and grapefruit hop. Pale malt backbone. Bitter grapefruit peel finish.

One of the most well balanced beers I have tasted. Hop bitterness is present but not overbearing, taste great, and the finish is smooth with out the after taste being overwhelmingly bitter like some IPA’s.
