A Clear medium gold body, several lazy bubbles moving up through the beer; a coupla fingers of ivory foam off the pour remained as a slim fuzzy cover throughout the drink. Some brief lace.
S: Grassy and herbal, floral and mild, some suggestion of citric fruit
T: Big bitter blast right up front. Turned solventy briefly and then smoothed out its flavors and feel. English and Pacific US hops helped produce flavors reminiscent of grapefruit pith and mango skin; fresh malt grain backbone had just a trace of honey-grain sweetness
M: Medium body, smooth despite the bittering effect, not too drying, crisp and bitter across the tongue
O: A real nice DIPA, leans toward the bitter/drier end of the spectrum; real emphasis on bitter hop action. For a moment, I thought it was average, but the rugged character of the flavors and feel really developed nicely.

Bottle from Gary's
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized creamy bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of orange, earth. pine, and resin with a solid light sweet sugary maltiness to back it up. The flavor is quite sweet like the aroma suggested with sweet sugar covered oranges and apricots. The earthy pine is less prevalent in the flavor as is the bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Its got some nice flavors and I'm guessing most of the fruit flavors might be hop derived. Needs more attenuation and more bitterness.

This reveiw is based on a draft enjoyed on my birthday at Max's in Baltimore. It has an average appearance: light amber body crowned by a thin head. It offers a caramel nose and a mildy sweet molasses bite with a quick hoppy finish at the end.
Nice balance with moderate carbonation - and suprisingly smooth for a beer of this caliber. Sometime next year I gotta get up to Brooklyn and visit this place, one of America's finest craft breweries. Nuff said. Forgeddaboutit!
