look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From 10/13/12 notes. Big thanks to whoever brought this one to the Top Hops tasting in NYC. Been a big Want of mine for a few months; a highly rated Jersey IPA close to my hometown.

a - Pours a deep orange-amber color with once inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of dank, pine hops, grapefruit, citrus hops, earthy notes, biscuit and bready malts, tropical fruits, and fruity malts. Tons of pine up front and smells very hoppy; really nice nose.

t - Tastes of pine hops, grapefruit, citrus, floral hops, earthy notes, fruity malts, some bready malts. Again, a lot of pine and more grapefruit here; a decent bitter bite to it. I think the nose was a little hoppier, but the taste is still great.

m - Medium body and low to mdoerate carbonation, with a medium bite to it thanks to the hops. Pretty easy to drink and would definitely want a few glasses of it.

o - Overall a really nice east coast IPA done in the style of a lot of west coast IPAs. A ton of pine to it, as well as grapefruit. Some bitterness from the hops, but not difficult to drink; well worth checking out. Glad I can get this pretty easy in NJ.

EDIT: 07/29/13: Have had this a bunch of times now, most recently on 7/27/13 at the brewery and 2 hours later from a growler. Nose is amazing and no bitterness whatsoever, a really great, easy drinking IPA. Better nose than Overhead, though I like Overhead's taste a little better.

Serving type: growler

4.43/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a perky cap sitting above the cloudy amber liquid; the head fades quickly, leaving only a few strand behind

Smell: Really fresh hop aromatics, with grapefruit and pine galore; a bit of biscuit and toffee underneath

Taste: Biscuity, up front, with a hint of toffee; the hops arrive quickly to dominate, however, bringing grapefruit, pine and a touch of tropical fruit; sweet tropical hop elements are balanced by the bitterness and continue through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: While I might have preferred just a touch lighter mouthfeel, this is a first rate West Coast style IPA - from Jersey, no less

Serving type: on-tap
