A - Beautiful apricot/orange/amber It wasn't the best color with a creamy head. Didn't get a lot of sediment like others have reported, but was plenty cloudy.
S - Citrus, a little pine, and malt pretty much sums it up.
T - , Very malty and very hoppy. Nice balance, but not a lot of depth either. A touch of orange perhaps. If I sound underwhelmed, I wasn't really. I actually enjoyed Hop-a-lo... pretty well.
M - starts off with a sweet malty flavor then very quickly drops a hop bomb in your most which finishes long and dry.
O -Overall I liked Hop-a-lot...a lot. It's 8.5% ABV was nice and buzzy, but it wasn't boozy at all. Enjoyed the hop overload and the mellow sweetness of the malt. Three thumbs up! (I got a lot of thumbs)

Not a fan of this brewer, though as a NJ guy I want to be. Carton & Kane rule NJ.
This beer tried several times and upgraded, may be River Horse's best.
A: Cloudy almost muddy, brown amber in color with a modest 1 finger head that falls fast but leaves a spotty, again almost a mud spray lace.
Smell: Caramel and bread are topped by resiny, grassy hops. A bit of that Saranac stink.
Taste: Follows smell, almost a sticky bun kind of beer, bready caramel with grass, grapefruit, cinammon, and a lot of long bitterness. Alcohol is not so noticeable as the bitter, peppery finish.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, sticky late. A peppery taste as the bitterness and citrus ride the tongue for a while, but too sticky/muddy for my mouth.
Drinkability: I like it tho it's muddled, it's a big flavored beer, a slow sipper.
