DATE REVIEWED: June 20, 2014... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: O's/Yanks renewed, and Blatt is named new Cavs coach...APPEARANCE: light amber, effervescent body; creamy pure white head that stands firm; inviting with nice spiraling lacing... AROMA: sprucey with some citrus scents; a bit of grapefruit, apple, melon and otherwise, agreeable... PALATE: big, full-bodied presence that demands attention on the tongue and teeth; a pulsating aftertaste, almost an aftershock... TASTE: a well-balanced approach here,, with grapefruit,, apple, melon, mellow sweet malts and a bit of yeasty funk--a tasty balance... OVERALLL: a strong, memorable experience throughout, with enough punch and balance ti please the palate--a local brew delivers a winner....

I had this at an Irish pub in NJ. If this IPA is the best NJ has to offer, I don't think I ever want to try another beer from the state. This IPA tasted like hops mixed with vomit. Ok.... I might be a little too harsh here, but it was lacking severely. It's like an ingredient was left out. The potential was there, but never arrived. Almost like a sneeze that dies out right before it happens. Very disappointed with my choice, even more so since they had some fine Great Lakes beer on tap. STAY AWAY.

A: Hazy burnt orange; 1 finger, fluffy, white head that stuck around; a lot of lacing;
S: very subtle aroma; a little citrus - maybe grapefruit; since this is an English IPA, I was expecting more malt - not getting that at all;
T: hint of floral; medium bitter finish with a hint of citrus; kind of bland; not getting the English part of this; seems closer to an East Coast IPA; no malt at all;
M: Medium bodied; a little effervescent;
O: easy to drink; balanced; nothing really exciting, but nothing really bad;
