4.13/5  rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bright copper in color with a thin white head that leave some trails of wispy lace.

Aroma was all citrus hops - orange peel and grapefruit. Toasted grain lies in the background.

Flavor is similar to the aroma - lots of citrus with orange peel and a grapefruit. A touch of grass is also present. Bitterness is balanced by a solid malt backbone of toasted bread. Overall a well balanced bright and fresh flavor. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness and citrus.

Smooth, crisp, and refreshing. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Excellent body while remaining refreshing. Easy drinking - a good session beer. Very nice.

3.91/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass here at Tun Tavern in Atlantic City.

Appearance: a slight hazy amber body with heavy bubbles, head within the initial pour rose to just below a finger's length coming off white in color.

Smell: light floral and hops, honestly smelling it is the worst part because of the fact that the scent is so weak. You sniff and it goes away rather quickly.

Taste: Smooth piney ness to it creates an awesome bitterness to it. It is definitely more of your starter IPA maybe because my palates have developed to a certain taste.

Mouth: without a doubt it's a heavy carbonation with a hard floral stickiness to it.

Overall: pretty good beer, definitely took me by surprise. I would definitely make this a go to beer when I come back here again. Hope you all enjoy and have one on me....Salud!

First had: on tap at their brewery

Probably the best beer in the house, and the only one I really had a desire to try again. Not too intense--and I like intensity in IPAs--relatively smooth, compared to straight-up IPAs. Poured a rusty amber color with a minimal white head. Aroma of light caramel malts and grassy hops. Pretty decent balance of the two in the aroma and the taste, and not much more to speak of. Ends pretty dry with some bitterness. Light-barely-medium bodied, and decent for a session, compared to the other house brews.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a white head. In the aroma, mellow orange citrus. In the taste, mellow orange citrus and a nice malt to back it up, although, a bit thin and watery. A nice hop bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry orange citrus in the aftertaste. A bit thin, but nice hops and tasty.

Wow this smells like a nice IPA. Smells fruity with some citrus. The taste is awesome with that nice hop bite that fruity citrus grapefruit like flavor coming off the hops. This could seriously be sold at stores have it be compete right up there with the most popular IPA's in my opinion. Closest beer it reminds me of is the Hopdevil from Victory but I'd actually like to say this has some more bitterness in it. The malt backs up with a nice biscuit very fresh malt taste. I can't believe Tun Tavern hasn't distributed some of their beers because this as just as good as any IPA i've had. I had a Dogfish Head 60 minute before this and this really stands up big time especially with its nice bitterness that I'd expect from an IPA. My favorite beer from Tun Tavern hands down.

3.63/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear dark ruby/golden amber color with some lighter golden orange hues when held to a light source and a one finger soapy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing.

Earthy floral hop aroma with some nice citrus notes as well as some rye and caramel and biscuit malt. Subtle pine presence with some lemon and orange peel.

Medium bodied and slightly creamy with sweet citrus floral hops. Not too bitter and not as much as I would prefer. Caramel malt with some biscuit and rye provide a decent balance without taking away too much from the sweet citrus hops. Does cancel out some of the bitterness but the sweet citrus peel flavors are still prominent. Overall, a nicely balanced drinkable IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a medium amber-orange with a fluffy white head that was moderately lasting leaving a nice sticky white lacing.

S: a sweet citrus aroma, toasted malt, and dry pine.

T: For flavor there was a big clean spicy citrus flavor, some dry pine, and a big flowery hop bite to end things. Nicely hopped IPA with great dry citrusy/grapefruit hopping.

M: very smooth, nicely carbonated and crisp.

D: Really nice drinkability, nicely hopped providing a great hop bite and fade on the finish will make you want to go back for more.

Had on tap at the Tun Tavern in AC this week....

A - Nice copper color, tending to orange with a decent head.

S - Nice piney floral hop smell, with a tint of malt

T - Good hoppy flavor on this beer, with a nice malt backbone to back it up. Not overly bitter but pretty well balanced.

M - Crisp, with a fairly biting note on the tounge. Decent carbonation.

D - Nice drinkability on this one. Nicely sessionable, could easily have a few. If you are in or going to Atlantic City, this brewpub is definitely worth checking out.

On tap at Tun Tavern on 7/4/08.

A - Clear copper body with orange highlights and one-finger off-white head that quickly diminished but left adequate lacing around the glass. Sparse amount of carbonation present.

S - Toasted and caramel malts with a mixture of grassy and citrus hops.

T - Starts off with a fairly assertive grassy hop bite, then seques into a toasted malt flavor with hints of grain and some caramel sweetness.

M - Medium body with ample carbonation and a mild syrupy texture. Finish is pretty dry and imparts a moderate bitterness across the palate.

D - Overall, this is a malt-forward IPA, but it has a nice toasted and grainy malt aspect, rather than a typical sweet maltiness. Quite drinkable, and certainly better than I was anticipating.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Sample at the brew pub: Clear orange-amber color with a medium thin ivory head that dissipates steadily. The citrusy hops aroma is potent and welcoming. Medium-bodied with a piney hops character, and a sweet malt underbelly. The finish is moderately hoppy and citrusy and stays on the tongue for a bit. Above average, although not by a lot.

Thanks to brothercannon for sharing this growler with PSYCOHOPS and myself. Poured into my Russian River shaker glass a deep, hazy amber color with a full two fingers of off white foam. Decent lacing left on the glass . Smells earthy, bready, and of fruity hops. Tastes remotely like fruit loops with an emphasis on the grains. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with maybe a notch above medium carbonation. Very drinkable and tasty. Our growler was empty in no time and we were craving more.

Served amber with slow, steady carbonation rising to create a thin, well-retained, creamy white head.

The smell was citrusy with a grainy, malty background.

The taste was bitter citrus - orange peel and a touch of grapefruit. A solid malt background gave it balance and a nice medium body.
Chewy hops with enough creaminess to make it smooth. It had a long, dry finish. Well-balanced for style - Hops dominate, but malt gives a nice support.

It's a nice IPA - not over-the-top - just a nice blend. Easy to drink.

Poured a color somewhere between amber and copper with a nice, tight white head the left lots of lacing behind. Smell was strong and hoppy with just a touch of malts noticed. Smelled quite tasty and it didn't disappoint. Very hoppy brew...close (not quite, but close) to a 60 minute in taste. Easily the best beer I had here. Nice carbonation and almost creamy mouthfeel to it. I could have drank these all afternoon and I almost did.

Beer arrived in a frosted pint glass and quite cold. The head was short, only an inch or so and it disappated quickly to surface foam. The nose was mildly hoppy and a hint of citrus. The flavor was quite nice, as the malt and strong piney bitterness were well balanced with some grapefruit tones.

The mouthfeel is lightly crisp at the start and mildly dry at the finish. The bitterness lasts pleasantly on the tongue after swallowing. This is very drinkable, but it improved dramatically after it warmed a bit.

I've sampled this one in the past and found it to be average at best. Having just sampled it again, I can say that something hs been tweaked or I've just been getting bad pours, as this is a very nice brew.

It pours a nice copper colour with a medium sized, slightly off-white head that leaves a decent amount of sticky residue on the glass.

The smell is a bit earthy, a bit sweet a bit bread lkike and very hoppy. It's basic, overall, but nice and solid.

The flavour is much like the smell in that it's your basic IPA, but it's done well. The hop flavour is not overpowering and the sweetness (both floral and some caramel flavour as well) mixes with the earth and bread flavours quite nicely. The carbonation level is spot on. This one is sometimes creamy, sometimes juicy, but always good.

I'd call this one a step up from a very basic easy drinking IPA...a nice stepping stone on the way up to the Double IPA's and the like.
