Appearance - Nice wheat color, very light

Smell - Piney nose with a touch of grapefruit. Beautiful aroma

Taste - Strong hop flavor, nice grapefruit taste

Mouthfeel - Hoppy bitterness, crisp taste

Overall - One of the best East Coast IPA's I've ever had, if not the best.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Eatontown. Tried it on a whim and was very impressed. Stone IPA was on tap as well (my usual go-to) and I ordered these instead of touching a Stone. Very drinkable. Looking forward to seeing more of their brews around!

Hazy Orange, on the lighter side. A perfectly persistent pearl white blanket of head, trailing delicate lace all the way down the pint. Not grapefruit, but honeysuckle, mango and pine. Randomly found this gem on tap at the attached restaurant at the Courtyard Marriott.
The aroma is great but not amazingly difficult to find. The rare thing about this beer is the perfectly balanced body. No caramel thank god, just the slightest toastiness, with a balanced quaffable thickness. It is as if it was designed to drink at the optimum speed to enjoy these beautiful hops.

Can not wait till this is distributed in bottles and I can bring some home.

This beer is amazing!I have Pliny and Heady in my possession right now, having drank both very recently, this beer is right there with them. Pliny has more pine, Heady has a little less bitterness but in the end this beer is rocking! If you have a chance to try this brew...dont pass it up. Beer pours cloudy golden ( like Heady if you dont drink it from a can) the aroma is hops and more hops. This is a hop heads dream.

Bottom Line: Awesome, Amazing beer!

What a great IPA. Like a 60 or 90 minute, with a sharp, crisp hop front. I'd say that the citrus was more of a back taste than front, but that would make me sound like an ass. I also liked the aroma and texture. It was slightly creamy, but felt unfiltered at the same time- go figure.
