This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a foamy, beige head. There is a decent amount of citrus and hops in the aroma. This is perhaps a little more watery than I was expecting but it still delivers a great pale ale flavor. Drinks very smoothing making it a great summer beer that doesn’t taste like water. Finishes a little sweet and malty, pretty unique stuff.

BOD 11/31/13. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber cast when decanted. Massive well formed head with superb lacing. Nice nose of citrus against a slightly sweet background. Very light medium body with average carbonation. The flavor profile is a mild grapefruit citrus focused bitterness against a biscuit background. A very slight spruce note is also present. The finish is clean with a lingering grapefruit flavored light bitterness. A good session ale.

In short- IPA flavor in a pale ale. Saw that this was on tap at the Jersey City Barcade and I had to go try it out. I have had bottles of this before and very much enjoyed them. Given the conceit of this beer I figured having it on tap was necessary. Rich citrus, hoppy flavors, medium bodied and very easy to drink; like, I could drink this all day.It might be fun to try. I really like this stuff.
