New York

3.55/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a short 12 oz bottle in to a nonic pint glass.

A- Pours a clean amber color with an inch of tan head. Very nice.

S- Again, pretty clean. Slightly hoppy and citrusy, and it even has some sour apple notes.

T- After the first sip I'm no quite sure what to make of this beer. There's a fairly solid hop presence and even some sourness up front. The flavors arrive early and linger around for a while.

M- Very unique mouthfeel. Creamy, slick, and slightly oily. The tongue is coated until the next sip. Moderately carbonated as well.

O- A good beer to try once for the hell of it. I guess it wouldn't be a bad session beer either since the mouthfeel tends to subdue some of the bitterness.
