Deep orange with amber hue and thick off white head that laces great down the glass. Smell is citrus forward. Grapefruit, orange peel, light floral, mango and un ripe berry. Taste brings big grapefruit favors, light mango, little berry, biscuit backbone through the middle, un ripe melon, floral and bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel has perfect carbonation, light end of medium mouthfeel and super dry, puckering finish. This IPA is unbalanced in all the right ways and I love it!

Sure enough, I live less than a mile from the Cloverleaf Tavern but it wasn't until recently that I started going in there on a regular basis. Recently, this is the beer that I see everyone having and raving about more than any other that's regularly on tap. After knocking off quite a few on my way to that establishment's MBA, this was next on my list. Why i didn't cross it off first is still beyond me!

Solid pour to this, as the beer had a cloudy hue, frothy head, and left more than enough lacing as I worked my way through this. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma and even more in the taste but what was missing here was the burn. No overpowering hops and maybe the most balanced IPA that I've had in a long time; if ever. The flavors really shined through the resin consistency of the mouthfeel and there was even a bit of chocolate-weed going on here (yes, Y typed that in right) to living things up and remind me of a good West Coast example of this style.

What separated this from those was the nice balance here and the relatively low amount of alcohol - this had the flavor profile of an IPA without the strength and potency of it. Some beers are just damn enjoyable without having to think about them too much or wonder why they go empty every time someone puts a glass of them in front of you. This was one of those and I'm so thankful that this is on-tap nearly all the time in my neck of the woods. So tasty and balanced at the same time - this beer even makes me a bit more proud to be from the Garden State. Undoubtedly worth seeking out!
