On draft at TJ Finley's, Bayshore, NY.

Poured a clear brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured resinous piney hops and a touch of citrus.

The taste was hop forward with waves of grapefruit and pine atop a round pale malt.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a very flavorful session IPA.

A great offering from the nano brewery Radiant Pig. The hop profile is well balanced and it definitely rides the line between a traditional IPA and a pale ale. Hops definitely hits the nose, but the taste is more subdued. A great beer for a hop-phobic individual. With a rather light body, I was tempted to throw back more than three in under an hour.
Overall, a very good beer from a new brewery.

A nice sessionable drinker. Hop tones are noticeable but nowhere near obnoxious. Earthy with a touch of salt and a bit more pine. A biting carbonation I could deal with a little less of really. But overall a nice brew. Something to drink and enjoy without thinking too hard about it. Nice job, Radiant Pig.

From 09/06/13 notes. Had this on tap at Pony Bar in NYC on the UES. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy orange color with one finger of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of wheat, light fruity malts, bready malts, grains, light citrus hops. Nose is decent but not very hoppy.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, lightly floral hops, bread, wheat, grains, light lemons. More hops here, much better than the nose.

m - Light to medium body and low carbonation. No real bitterness, pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent local IPA. The nose had some fruit to it but wasn't very hoppy, though the taste had more to it. Worth checking out.
