4.33/5  rDev +13.1%

On tap at the Harvest Moon Brewpub in New Brunswick. Had on 4/8/11, reviewing from notes in phone.

Cloudy orange in color, arrives with one finger of sticky foam on top. There is a huge citrus aroma - very impressive!

Grapefruit and citrus hop flavors dominate, the malt takes a definite back seat. Not nearly as much residual sweetness as many other IIPAs that I've had. Unbalanced on the hoppy side - but I'm digging it. One of the best beers I've had at Harvest Moon.

On tap at the brewpub. One of their better ones, a decent DIPA. Pacific Northwestern cluster hops. Orange aroma. Cloudy orange appearance, some retained head and a lace sheet. Lots of IBU, bitterness is immobilizing and one dimensional. Above average mouthfeel though a palate paralyzer. Not as much aroma as you would expect from the style.

First had: on tap at their brewery

Poured cloudy yellow-orange with a small, white head. Not too fragrant, but there are some citrus hops going on with a bit of malty sweetness. Pretty decent balance in the taste of citrusy hops, and light malts; a bit piney and grassy. Medium mouthfeel, and moderately drinkable.

Got this in a growler tonight and split with friends.

Pours a honey color with a half inch head. Minimal lacing.

Smells like caramel, citrus, and pine hops. Not a lot going on.

Taste is mostly caramel, slight pine in the middle, finishes with some pine on the end. Its good, sort of like 90 Minute IPA.

Mouthfeel is full, not too much carbonation. I filled the growler about 20 minutes before having it, so it did not lose carbonation.

Overall, its good. Nothing great, but this is too far on the sweet side for my IPA tastes.

This beer poured out with a nice looking golden color with foamy white head on top with a light sticky lacing. The smell of the beer has a decent hop aroma blending with malts. The taste of the beer has a hoppy bitterness to it. The mouthfeel was pretty good, the bitterness was sharp and dry. Overall this beer was pretty good.
