Had this a few times but most recently on tap. It was decent i must say..
A - Pours a great DIPA color. Orangeish/amber light brown color with a good head and pretty good lacing.
S - I smell the floral, fruity hops but not pungent and not overpowering which is what i would prefer.
T - Decent taste to it. Not horrible at all and I wouldn't go crazy seeking this out when there are so many good beers. but this is worthy. i was not disappointed in it.
D - Pretty drinkable. I could easily have a couple of these. I'm happy to try these however i won't be seeking this out as a must have.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
