Serving: On tap at Crif Dogs (Brooklyn), poured into a 16 oz plastic pint cup.

Appearance: Clear, light orange amber with good white head and lacing.

Smell: Big, dank and citrus hops atop some malty sweetness.

Taste: Immediate pop of grapefruit, spice, herbs and a bit of resinous hops. Caramel, malty backbone provides some balance, but the hops star. Moderately bitter, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Crisp, hoppy and satisfying ale.

as bold of a cream ale as i can recall, i love this thing. its got a richer and bigger malt base than many, a touch of caramel color to the mostly clear brew. the head is white and long lasting, and the nose shows some serious sweetness. i get honey and cereal grain, with maybe some milk sugar and enough hops for it to be balanced on the back end. the flavor is the same, with the majority of the sweetness coming up front. i love the bigger malt bill, it does so much for the flavors here and really takes the style to a place i have not seen it go before. the bigger body i think also helps it stand out from the crowd. carbonation is epic, and im left wanting more and more of this beer. not like any other cream ale out there, and i think these guys have done an expert job making base styles unique to their brewery. this is exceptional on all counts.
