3.93/5 rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Pint.
Appearance: Hazy copper-gold with decent head.
Smell: Tea, biscuit and citrus. Muted aroma and fairly malt heavy.
Taste: Very malty with tea, biscuit, caramel and toasted notes. The hops seem to be a mix of English and American, with floral, spicy notes blending with citrus and lemon notes. The hops seem a little bit too light, as if the blend deadened all the individual components. But, the blend is still oddly enticing. Not much bitterness at all.
Feel: Moderate carbonation. More medium bodied that full. Somewhat drying finish. Pretty nice mouthfeel.
Overall: While the taste, and especially the aroma, are a little too subtle for the style, this is also ridiculously drinkable. Not really a DIPA in my opinion, but certainly enjoyable.
Serving type: bottle

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!
Serving type: on-tap
