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.

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!
