look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: somewhat hazy; burnt orange color; even with an aggressive pour, almost no head; some lacing;
S: subdued; a little pine, tropical fruit, and a touch of smokiness;
T: well balanced, but not a lot of anything; a slight bit of bitterness on the short finish;
M: medium bodied; light carbonation;
O: this wasn't bad, but it seemed a little weak; if it had more aroma, more flavor, more bitterness, and more carbonation, I would have liked it a lot more;

Growler filled at Cranbury Buy-rite.
Poured into a DFH large snifter.
Pours a rich amber color with a finger of sticky foam. Aroma is full of blueberry and citrus hops - a nice sweet fruity smell.
First sip is a rush of crystal sweetness that quickly fades and leaves a lingering citrus hop flavor. Finishes dry, despite the initial sweet flavors.
This is a very balanced IPA - nothing overpowering here. A nice mix of malt and hops, with a dry finish makes this very easy to drink.
Solid beer, but not mindblowing. Nothing to complain about, just a great quaffable brew.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed golden orange color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades rather quickly leaving foamy rings of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a citrus hop smell of grapefruit and pine. Along with the hoppy smells comes some more malty aromas with both a bready and light caramel aroma. A of a tangerine smell mixes in with the rest, creating a sweeter smell overall.
Taste – The taste is much drier than anticipated from the nose. It begins with a more cracker like flavor with a bit of a caramel sweetness. Right from the start there is a decent sum of a grapefruit hop that grows stronger as the flavor moves onto the end. Along with the grapefruit growing stronger, some pine hop and a bit of herbal hop work their way onto the tongue. The caramel that was present upfront, fades away all while the hops increase, and in the end the combination of flavors leaves a drier and rather resinous bitter flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. The thicker body really accentuates the hop flavors nicely as the higher carbonation is nice for the cracker flavors creating a some-what crisp feel.
Overall – A drier and crisper IPA with a decently bitter hop bite. A fairly nice drinker.
Serving type: on-tap
