This was one from a sixer I found at Dewey Beach Liquors while on summer vacation at costal Delaware.
Look: Color was a hazy golden color with some deeper tones in the middle. The head was a fluffy 2-fingers of beige foam that stuck around for the duration. Lacing was vry sticky and spotty. Carbonation bubbles were even and throughout.
Smell: Aroma was of grassy hops and a sweet honey malt character.
Taste: The taste proved to be a very light palate from what the brewer's specs suggest (75 IBU's and 7.5% abv). Honestly I was expecting a level of complexity found more in a Double IPA. First off was a light kiss of herbal hops. Then a sweet malty resin hit just for a moment.
Then the high IBU's managed to appear to basically form the finish and aftertaste.
This was a solid brew that followed the drinkable approach found in Fordham offerings. I would grab this again.

Tried to "had" this beer tonight and noticed it wasn't here. Going from memory..
A - Cloudy orange color with a small off white head. Fairly average.
S - Smell was nice. Lots of pine and grass. A bit of Lemon.
T - Nice bitter beer. Some grapefruit up front and a good bitter finish.
M - Lightly carbed, but heavier body. No alcohol at all, really drinkable.
O - Had this back to back with Long Trail double, and everyone preferred the Fordham. Take that for what it's worth. I liked it, and will get it on tap to try it again if I see it around.
