Poured from the bottle, a straw color with the slightest hint of orange is capped by a modest head that soon dies down and leaves an ultra thin collar that retains nevertheless. Since it's unfiltered, it was adorned by floaters galore; if you don't like it, it's not for you. I don't mind.
I think the aroma might have been my favorite quality about this brew. Nice citrusy smell, mainly orange and some grapefruit. As it warmed some other fine qualities came out, such as a sweet malt aroma and a modestly dank and fresh herbal hoppiness. Pleasant overall.
In the mouth, it had a semi sharp piny hops bite. The restaurant must have had this bottle chilling for a while because it was served nearly ice cold which made it taste clean. However, as it warms up, some of the citrusy tones make their presence felt. The body is on the light side of medium; a bit thin at times.
Overall, I thought this was a decent, relatively simple and accessible IPA. Nothing earth shattering, but, drinkable and session like.

From 05/06/15 notes. On tap at Bar 515 in NYC. $6ish for a 16 oz. pour in a pint glass.

Pours a hazy burnt yellow color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident. Some citrus hops, fruity malts, pale malts, bready malts, earthy notes, and light floral hops. Not very hoppy, more malty. Medium body and low carbonation, no bitterness and easy to drink.

Overall not a bad beer but not very hoppy and forgettable. Wouldn't seek it out again but would give it another shot at a place with only BMC products.
