Poured a light tea color in a Brooklyn Brewhouse glass with a 2F head.Good lacing.

Nice floral aroma with raisin, hops, and malt.

Light carbonation to the mouth feel- not overdone like a lot of other IPAs I have been drinking lately.

The aroma transitions well to the taste: spicy, fruity, raisin, malty, followed by a lightly bitter hoppy finish.

Overall: I really like this beer. Very drinkable, and it has a good balance of hops, fruit, malt, and carbonation. The thick well designed Brooklyn Brewhouse glass works well for this beer.

Usually pale ales are not my cup of tea (or beer if you will). However, there is something very compelling about Brooklyn's IPA's complex taste and drinkability.
