Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a Libbey Gibraltar 7 oz glass.

Appearance: Clear, light copper color. Brief, off white head with lively carbonation and little lacing.

Smell: Honey-sweet maltiness followed by earthy, spicy hops with a touch of citrus.

Taste: Mellow caramel malt base with citrus and spice.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with visible but soft carbonation.

Overall: A nicely hopped, balanced and drinkable take on Old World IPA.

12 oz. bottle, with best by FEB 2015 printed on the bottleneck. A new beer to me from the Brooklyn Brewery, acquired a single bottle of this stuff from the local Binny's as part of a mixed six pack.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a brassy orange body with about a finger of khaki head that subsides rather quick. Thin spotty lacing on the glass. Appears adequately carbonated, with some slow-rising bubble action. Looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is malty and coppery. Earthy & grassy, with some fruity fermented apple / cider sort of notes present. Subtle notes of pine and grapefruit make an appearance, but the metallic notes pervade. Nonetheless, it is a pleasant aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose - bitter & lightly piney with some grapefruit / apple / cider notes apparent. Earthy, herbal, and grassy, but malty / metallic notes are again pervasive.

M - The feel is good, crisp and clean, lightly bready, malty, and metallic on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall, an interesting take on the style from Brooklyn Brewery. Perhaps not a beer I would have again often, but appropriate on many levels for the style, especially since they are going for that old-world recreation of an 1820s IPA. Worth a try, for sure.
