4/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a small foamy head perched atop the hazy amber liquid; several streaks of lace are left behind

Smell: Sugary shortbread malt underpins pineapple and citrus tones

Taste: Shortbread malt, up front, but the bitterness builds through the middle, with pineapple and citrus; the malt lingers into the finish despite the aggressive bitterness; the 9% is very apparent in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth lingers in the gullet

Overall: A nice double IPA but a bit too boozy and sweet on the finish for my palate

From 11/29/13 notes. On tap at One Mile House in NYC. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a golden amber color with two inches of fluffy off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pineapples, fruity malts, pine hops, and floral hops. Very nice, with ltos of citrus hops.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, tropical fruits, mangos, pineapples, grapefruit juice, floral hops, fruity malts, dank pine hops, bread, and earthy notes. Taste is super fresh and hoppy, with a ton of nice citrus and tropical fruits. Awesome taste, even better than the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, with no real bitterness to it. Pretty nice.

o - Overall I thought this was a great beer; up there with Money as one of their best, and reminds me of it quite a bit. Tons of fresh citrus hops and tropical fruits and no bitterness. HIghly recommend, would like to have it again.

The beer comes in a golden amber.

The beer is extremely hoppy of floral, tropical mangoes, pineapple, and juicy citrus orange. The finish is of a gentle bitterness and balances with the bready malt in there.

This beer is extremely clean and hoppy with a light malty backbone. This is a fantastic addition to the beers of Long Island.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Slightly hazed golden body, white head has decent retention and lacing.

S - Huge burst of tropical citrus, pineapple, mango, grapefruit.

T - Follows smell, but then turns and finishes slightly astringent and boozy. Big caramel sweetness comes in as it warms.

M - Medium to full body, good medium carbonation level. Not overly bitter considering style.

O - Wonderful nose on this one, but didn't completely translate to the taste.
