Had this on tap at The White Horse during the American Beer Fest over 4th of July weekend. Poured a clear orange and had a lightly frothy head that turned into delicate lacing thoughout the drink. This smelled of everything I love about a great Dipa. Well balanced, sweet smelling but still holds a heavy kick of hop presence. then to top it off, a outdoorsy sweet flower, citrus zest and pine aroma that is what sets it apart from other ipa's. The flavor is full of Citrus, floral, and sweet yeast which comes through nicely and mingles with the sticky pine and hop flavors that perfectly define the style. The feel is close to perfect with it's mild carbonation (almost like a cask ale) and medium body. As with any DIpa, I usually have them towards the end of the night as they can wreck the palette and this one being 8% I can't say that I could drink it all night . . . but I would certainly try to.

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!
