1-liter growler poured into a snifter. It poures as a clear golden copper color with more than a finger of frothy off-white sids. Some patchy strings of lace paint the glass as the cap fades. Overall a solid looking DIPA.
The aroma is a bold bouquet of hops that are rindy, herbal, catty and almost cheesy with a fruity to floral accompaniment and faint sulfur addition. A touch of grainy backing with a sort of neitral alcohol inclusion.
The flavor is all hops that are catty to cheesy. Somewhat dank and slightky sulfuric like the aroma suggested. A bit herbal to grassy with rinds and pulp elements. A very slight dry biscuit to straw-like grain inclusion is noticed across the back. It is not excessively bitter but aggressive enough to get your attention.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is dry with assertive hops that are complex and enjoyable. For only my 2nd carton offering in 2 years, color me impressed with these guys. I'll be on the lookout to try some of their ofher stuff.
Serving type: growler

On tap in Hoboken, NJ. 16oz pour in pint glass
A- Very light for a double IPA, almost looked like a single.
S- Citrus fruits and stone fruits on the nose via some amazing combo of hops
T- Big citrus hop flavors, finishing with a bit of apricot or necterine. Very drinkable and great flavor profile.
M- Good overall mouth feel, pretty standard for an IIPA
O- Great beer, happy to be able to try while visiting a buddy in Hoboken. Only thrown off by the color of this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
