New Jersey

4.22/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sampled this at Savor 2010. Poured a golden-orange, with a finger of white, decent retention, and good lacing. Huge citrus nose, with pineapple, grapefruit, and apricot, with some bitter hops. The taste confirmed the aroma, with a huge citrus flavor, though more balanced with malt at midpalate than expected, and then finished on a sweet pineapple citrus note. Not as overpoweringly sweet on the finish as some other pineapple-flavored ipa's I've had recently. Modestly carbonated, and very smooth and medium-bodied. Very nice, citrus-oriented specimen of the style.
