On tap at The Office in Westfield with mikeg67. Poured an orange hued amber with a medium lasting white head, some lacing. Aroma and Taste of pine hops, tangy grapefruit, citrus with some splashes of orange, some caramel malt for balance. A medium crisp body, good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, pine citrus hops with a bit of tangy grapefruit and orange flavor. A well balanced and enjoyable brew.

Served on tap at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph NJ.

Pours a medium color with some foam attached. Strong grapefruit nose, very pushy. Very nice nose. Toffee malt taste, little sweet, subtle hop fade out. Smooth flavorful progression. Citrus. Quite good. One of the better ones tasted that evening.

Beer pours a copper hued orange with a thin foamy cap that dissipates to a few bubbles. The scent hits me immediately upon opening my growler. Strong smells of orange peal, pine and a touch of caramel. The piney citrus scent from the hops is absolutely wonderful.

The taste is not quite as strong as the scent. It begins with a touch of citrus that moves toward the pine like resinous character, but refrains from becoming very bitter. The malt has a caramel hint, but largely remains a backdrop. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium and a little thinner than I would prefer. All in all a greats smelling beer that falls short of my expectations on the palate, but still enjoyable all around.
