3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from growler a light brown with a mostly white head. Aroma was a light citrus with a malty backbone. Taste was a light grapefruit and malt. This was interesting compared to the new typical US IPA east or west coast. This the malt came trough balanced nicely with the grapefruit. I enjoyed this out on the deck and it’s perfect for that. Aroma was light it was hazy with a thicker but slick mouth feel. Nicely done.
Growler from brewery. Pours amber orange with a brief white head. Faint tea-like malty nose. Flavor is subdued. Syrupy caramel malt upfront with a subtle floral hoppiness. There is an ethereal earthiness in the middle that is reminiscent of old wood. Finish is hoppy, but subtle. Not your traditional IPA. Different. egajdzis (6580) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, citrus, light pine. Taste of caramel, earth, herbal hops, light grassy bitterness. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Draft. Pours orange gold white head. Nose/taste of fuggles, light malt, grass and spicy yeast. Medium body. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Draft. Pours murky, ugly yellow brown with a finger of white head. Aroma is fresh dirt, wet hay, some trace pine notes. Taste is not like any other IPA i’ve had - and that’s not a good thing here. Muddled mix of hops with no distinguishable, redeeming qualities. A little too much malt against a undiscernable hop bill. pineypower (3325) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Growler shared thanks to Eduardo. Pours out caramel color with a small white head. Aroma is of lots of caramel malts, light toast, grassy hops maybe? Taste is the same all malts forward, earth, toast, mild grains, grass hops. This is a very lose definition of an IPA.

Poured a murky light tea brown with a quick fading head. A/F of wet bread, old hops, grass. Nice body with average carbonation and a refreshing feel. Decent Ed5388 (3477) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a murky brown color with small foamy tan head. Aroma of old grapefruit, roasted malt, and caramel. Taste mimics nose with notes of old citrus, light roasted malt, Carmel, and a hint of cocoa.
