vacation tommorow = andy's corner bar (bogata, nj) for a growler tonight! ($12)
very light brown hue, one finger of densely packed white head (mostly micro bubbles), very clingy, no carbonation rising up from below, a decent enough looking brew with points added for lacing.
mellowed out cirtus hops mixed with slight caramel tones, a slight astringent tone (but pleasant), peanuts.. oh wait, let me move those...
pretty much your typical IPA.. nothing special.
a nice crisp bitterness, even a little resiny, medium to light bodied, carbonation is a bit lacking for me, it almost is a bit too flat tasting. it coats decently enough, the bitterness is quite nice but it seems lacking in overall flavor punch.. something is missing. it is not bad or anything just very average.
Serving type: growler

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
