Pours a thing white head with decent retention. Slightly cloudy, translucent coppery/orange-gold brew.
Sweet tropical fruit hops are forefront; floral notes, hint of soft citrus, honey, bit of resinous hops.
Very juicy and balanced flavor: drier, more resinous hops up forward, with a huge passionfruit and mango finish. Biscuit malts provide a solid backbone. Pepper and tobacco in there, as well as some earthy hops. Very dry and bitter aftertaste. Tons of different hop flavor going on.
Very lively feel, pretty drinkable, not particularly syrupy.
Overall this is a nice DIPA: hoppy, bitter, flavorful, pretty balanced, and drinkable. Worth trying, but not world-class.

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!
