4.31/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle dated best by Sep. 2014 into a pint glass.

Look: orangey goldenrod. Very little head.

Smell: not much at first; as it warms, some grass, mango, malt sweetness.

Taste: strangely hard to tease apart. Citrus, but not overwhelmingly; some stone fruits, a bit of grass on the backend. Starts tangy, then bitter, finishing sweet. Just the right amount of malts for me (that is, less malt presence than hops).

Feel: pretty good mouthfeel. Surprisingly thick for abv, but well carbonated. Very drinkable.

Overall: this is something of a strange beast, but I enjoy it. Almost hews more to a West Coast style.

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
