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!

Beer notes from 6/15/13; on tap at the Gramercy Tavernin NYC: pours slightly hazy amber gold color with a foamy 2 finger white head that faded slowly and left good lacing and as it went down.

Smells like a tangerine, orange peel and piney hops, mixed with light grains, caramel, earthy notes and grass; very light smelling, like a nice summer beer.

Tastes like an IPA and pilsner were mixed together, with piney hops, citrus hops, lemon, orange peel, mild grapefruit, grass, hints of caramel, light bready notes and an overall beer crispness like a fresh German pilsner had some West Coast hops dropped in it for near perfect balance. The low ABV made it dangerously easy to drink and I downed two pints in about a half hour before dinner.

Mouthfeel was very light and crisp, with mild carbonation, a light body and outstanding drinkability; this is a definite session beer that has everything I look for in a quality beer on tap, especially when it's hot out. This was perfect for trying a new beer with flavor while standing at the bar waiting to be seated and engaging in conversation.

Overall I thought that this was great and I hope that someone from Brooklyn Brewery reads this review and keeps this beer in the year-round rotation and not just a one off Brewmaster’s Reserve experiment. This beer was excellent and deserves an encore.

A couple of fingers worth of off-white head on a clear, golden body. The foam fades slowly and leaves nice lace. Pine and tropical fruit in the aroma with sweet malt, notes of lychee and mango. The flavor starts out similar to the aroma with exotic fruit notes and a touch of fruity acidity, but it quickly fades to a light maltiness and lingering berry notes. Clean bitterness, medium body, moderate carbonation and a fairly balanced finish. Quite drinkable, the aroma is very nice, the hop character reminds me of Mosaic. The flavor is much flatter than the aroma, but still enjoyable, and the beer is unusually well balanced for what is basically a "session IPA" as it avoids the excessive, harsh toasty dryness that sometimes shows up in low alcohol hop forward American IPAs.

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

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.
