Had this on tap the other night at the Brooklyn Brewery during Happy Hour. Never tried it and I didn't know anything about it beforehand but one whiff of this beer and I knew that it was going to be the best that I ever had from Brooklyn. Sure enough, that was confirmed upon tasting!
Good pour to this, to the point where I thought this was an American Amber before looking this beer up on here. The hue was a nice glowing red and the head wasn't bad either. I could smell this from a good distance and there was lots of grapefruit, mango, and an overall wet-hopped feel to this. That was repeated in the taste and mouthfeel as this beer was nicely balanced and had the perfect amount of carbonation. No burning or "skunky weed" for this IPA, but just a fruity and filling offering that goes down easily.
Heck, maybe *too* easily, as I couldn't even taste the alcohol in this. No doubt that this was the best beer available on tap the night I went an a feather in Brooklyn's cap. Any fan of IPA's, subtly warming beers, or the Troegs Nugget Nectar owes it to him or herself to seek this out and give it a go. It would be well worth the effort!

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!
