On tap last night at George Keeley's, Upper West Side, NYC. This brew is the best East Coast interpretation of the West Coast double IPA. In fact, it may have even outdone many of those. The taste reminds me of Pliny the Elder. A bouquet of citrus envelopes the nose with a well done, bitter hoppiness on the tongue. Really a tasty, unexpected treat.

A: The beer is hazy amber orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass and bits of lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of fresh hops are present in the nose—floral and lemon citrus flavors seem to stand out in particular along with notes of herbal and spicy hops.
T: Much like the smell, the overall taste is dominated by flavors of fresh hops and is accompanied by a light to moderate amount of bitterness. There are some hints of pale malts but it is the hops that really shine through. Some notes of alcohol are perceptible towards the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite hoppy and has a nice blend of complex hop flavors, and is interesting in that it uses a blend of American and English hops so the aromas and flavors are quite different compared to most of the West Coast IPAs. It's not overly difficult to drink, although the notes of alcohol flavors in the finish do detract a little from its drinkability.
