Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with white head, light and fluffy. Hops, floral, grassy, citrusy goodness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with mostly grassy and citrusy combination of hop notes. Nice wet hopped ale.

A: crystal clear; deep gold in color; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: complex - ever changing; herbal and pine morphing to floral, with some tropical fruit added in at the end;

T: quite floral from start to finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: outstanding aroma; flavor was good, but didn't live up to the aroma;

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/12/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright/dank citrus/floral/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of bright/dank citrus/floral/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky/resinous mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wet hopped American pale ale style. All around very good robustness, complexity, and balance of bright/dank citrus/floral/piney hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Not sure why this doesn't get higher ratings, but this is a very good example of a wet hop brew. Not as oily or bitter as most. Nice smooth. A little low in the ABV as you would expect from an IPA. But it's a very tasty example. Nice lacy head. Nice body. Good hopes in the nose and smell.

Had on tap at De Nova in Montclair, NJ. Beer is kind of all over the place. A little muted as compared to other stronger APAs. Still a a tasty concoction I must say
