Better on tap, than bottle. Orange/golden color. A bit on the bitter side. Nothing special with this one. Dry finish. Hints of floral, citrus, pine and maybe clove. Kind of a boring beer.

Just realized this is also bottled as the "exclusive" beer of Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ. It is also known as Blue Pig Tavern Ale. It is a decently balanced APA.

My first impression was - This is a refreshing light ale - but later,after many tastings, I've returned to lower my orig rating. There's not a good enough balance betw hops and malt -needs more deep malt flavor - it ends up coming off a bit watery and lightweight. Also has a back-flavor.
