look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a nonic pint glass
A- Pours a golden color with orange highlights when held to light. One and a half finger head that dissipates rather fast. Lacing is very sporadic with small circles in some places and chunks in others.
S- Smell is mostly hops with little else to offer. I didn't get the peppery effect that others had. Not overly impressive.
T- Once again not much else besides hops here. Hints of spices, though none in particular stand out. The best thing I can say about the taste is that it's balanced. The 7% alcohol doesnt really show up in the taste.
M- Light carbonation. Pretty creamy for an IPA which I didnt mind. Not to harsh on the tongue, goes down smooth.
D- Despite the fact that nothing really stood out in this beer, it all came together for me as a drinkable beer. Nothing spectacular but I would drink a second one.
Overall- Pretty average beer if you ask me. Definitely not the best Brooklyn has to offer. I don't think I'd go out of my way to have another of these.

Nice english IPA of a hazy orange/ocher color that goes to a yellowish tone in the corners of the glass. Foam is ok.
Smell and taste are full of citrus, specially lemon, orange and grapefruit. Pear and apple tones also appear and that makes this beer quite juicy. Maltiness, bitterness and hoppines are at an ok level but could be higher, specially maltiness.
Body is ok too. Didn't enjoy the mouthfeel too much because of the acidity that comes in corners of the lips.
