Being an APA fan and from NJ, I really want to like this beer, but tasted against Dales Pale Ale and Terrapin Rye Ale, it falls short, even tho it looks really good.

A: Pours super hazed apricot/copper with a massive, energetic sand colored head that lasts, turns into steep islands of foam, and laces the glass. Looks great, but sinks to average from there.

S: A decent blend of citrus hops & a bready malts, but there's a Hackensack background, kind of old rail road ties over fall salt marsh.

T: Follows smell, starts bready, with floral & citric hops, then complex additions of brown sugar, grass, and apricot. Finishes with that Meadowlands stink, not bad, just lingering and weaving between tar and decay and salt march, salt water.

MF: Makes for a complex brew that is medium bodied with medium carbonation. However, not making me go for more...
