On tap at Zippelin Bier Garten, Jersey City. Pours golden with long lasting, foamy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and some ripe fruit. Finish is long and balanced. Nice, not too hoppy, balanced IPA.

12 oz bottle, bottled on 8/14/13. Pours clear golden orange with a big rocky off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet biscuity crystal malt with some grassy hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with a good amount of grassy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK IPA - too much sweet biscuit malt and grassy hops.
