On tap at Brickwall Tavern, Asbury Park, NJ

Bright orange color, but opaque with haze, and a small white head that faded to a thin ring, leaving trace amounts of lacing on the glass. Aroma was primarily fruity, somewhat hoppy, but mostly fruity. In the taste, again, lots of juicy fruit, citrus, tropical, stone, with a sugary sweetness overwhelming any hop bitterness; solid bready malt base, with a touch of fusel booze. I have to believe that the tap line was contaminated on this almost tasted like a full-blown fruit beer as opposed to an IPA. So I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt with a relatively conservative rating. Mouthfeel was slick, body medium, carbonation average. Decent overall, but I kind of want to try it again, just to see if it was indeed contaminated.
