A - dark copper with nice 1.5 fingers of head. Good carbonation. Crystal clear.

S - hops off the bat, great auroma. Not so sweet malts. Has a citrus hidden in there, maybe grapefruit.

T - taste is great. Has a nice hop note, but not bitter for the Sake of being bitter. Has a great malt undertone. The biggest thing is balance here, it's perfect.

M - medium body, good carbonation. Coates the mouth with flavor but not in a buttery way.

O - favorite Brooklyn beer so far. This is a great IPA, not to mention hops are from Yakima Valley!

Another session "style" IPA out there,had on tap at Sessions.Poured a slightly hazed apricot color with a tight formed half finger white head that sat for a longtime.Aromas of juicy citrus fruits,orange and not overly bitter grapefruit,a firm not overly sweet biscuit malt base is on par with the hops.Thinner feel and kinda slick doesn't lend itself well to the flavor profile.Light citric hops along with some herbal notes up against a biscuit malt base.No frills and a little thin in the feel but not horrible by any means.

Brooklyn scorcher - served on tap at The Office in Morristown NJ.

Pours medium dark amber bronze. Thick white foam. Bright pine nose. Citrus and flowery too. Taste is light citrus malt woven with a minor hop. Quite Lemony. Crisp finish. Very tasty summer beer, most enjoyable. Good hop to be noticed, but not overwhelmning. 4 4 425 375 4

1.76/5  rDev -49.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 2

Appearance: sunny yellow, slight haze, mostly transparent though, with a near bone white head. Looks decent.

Aroma: lightly lemony, faint citrus, and the buck stops there.

Taste: light lemon/citrus, nearly nonexistent.

Mouthfeel: I know the ABV is low, but this is Michelob Ultra watery.

Overall: sad, sad beer. I had a Green Flash Surfs up before this and thought it was sort of average...I appreciate it a lot more after this.

On draft at Hoptron Brewtique, Patchogue, NY.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was giid retention and lacing.

The smell featured soft caramel and a grassy hop spice.

The taste consisted of light clean caramel malts with a pleasant herbal hop kiss.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty and refreshing APA.
