4.25/5 rDev +19%
Poured from a traditional style cask spout into a dimpled mug
A- very light in color. Moderately good head retention.
S- smell is absolutely amazing! Grapefruit, pine explosion!!! It has a sweetness lingering on the nose as well...
T- awesome citrus flavor with a smooth maltiness...
M- feels smooth in my mouth due to the low carbonation. Very drinkable despite the 7.5% abv.

A - poured into a snifter glass from a 12oz bottle. Nice amber color
S - Piney evergreen/hops
T - Nice hop flavor, pine, floral, with a grapefruit finish. Very nice.
M - Moderately carbonated with medium body. Very refreshing and easy drinking beer.
O - I'm not a Fordham fan but I am a fan of a good IPA and this is a good IPA. I enjoyed it and will drink this again. Nice little beer
Food pairing - I paired this beer up with a pineapple/honey glazed grilled chicken, white coby chesse, sharp chedder, and Terryaki grilled pork tenderloin. All paired excellent with the beer.

The aroma is hoppy, smelling fresh and wet.
The color is golden honey. The head though small is dense and lasting. The clarity is somewhat hazy with sediment of some sort,
Taste is sweet and hoppy up front and ends dry and bitter. Hops are bold and assertive on the palate.
Drinks thin and maybe watery.
A good tasting beer here but those floating things dampens the appearance.

Served) In a snifter glass.
Appearance) Cloudy - golden/orange color, white head with a good lace.
Smell) A lot of pine, grass and grapefruit.
Taste) First is a good mixture of hops and malt. Then mostly hops at the end. Some orange, grapefruit, lemon, and pine flavors.
Mouthfeel) Medium body, slick, moderate carbonation with a little warming alcohol feeling.
Overall) Very well balance and solid IPA. Great hops bitterness with just the right malt backbone. Close to a double IPA.
Food pairing was carrot cake. The spices and the sweetness of the cream cheese icing went well with the bitter hops.

Poured from tap into pint glass....nice golden color and even better lacing. Slightly cloudy but still looks great. Head clings to the side of the glass top to bottom. Pine, citrus/soapy flavor to be expected. Flavors mix well and are typical of the style but don't stand out or set themselves apart from the miriad of other decent IPA's on the market. Good...better than good, but not "great". Easy drinking without any unpleasant aftertaste. Alcohol is masked well, but would definitely sneak up on you if you didn't know better. I would have again.
