Growler from Brass Rail Deli.
Copper color with a nice frothy off white head. Good lacing and some nice retention. Smell is very citrusy, oranges and grapefruit stand out. The taste slides into the piney notes with real strong grapefruit. Bitterness puckers your cheeks just enough. This is a world class west coast style from and east coast brewery. This is the best brew i've had from Allentown/Bethlehem Brew Works. Nice job guys.
Serving type: growler

Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: a clear golden brew with a lot of carbonation in the pour but little head retention that left small spots of lacing.
Smells: a pine hop that has a sweet ring to it.
Tastes: a very hop forward IPA with a floral pine hop that bites my tongue in a great way. I enjoy the sweet citrus fruit flavors that are more apparent as it warms up a little.
Mouthfeel: there is a strong bitter bit from the generous amount of hops they infused in this ale but quite refreshing and smooth with the 7%.
Overall: Overall taste of this brew was right on the line between outstanding and very good.
Serving type: bottle
