Ba Review #281
Served On: 07/22/2013
Glassware: Tumbler Pint
Labeled ABV: 7.5%
Date/ Code: 05/17/13

This was one from a sixer I found at Dewey Beach Liquors while on summer vacation at costal Delaware.

Look: Color was a hazy golden color with some deeper tones in the middle. The head was a fluffy 2-fingers of beige foam that stuck around for the duration. Lacing was vry sticky and spotty. Carbonation bubbles were even and throughout.

Smell: Aroma was of grassy hops and a sweet honey malt character.

Taste: The taste proved to be a very light palate from what the brewer's specs suggest (75 IBU's and 7.5% abv). Honestly I was expecting a level of complexity found more in a Double IPA. First off was a light kiss of herbal hops. Then a sweet malty resin hit just for a moment.
Then the high IBU's managed to appear to basically form the finish and aftertaste.

This was a solid brew that followed the drinkable approach found in Fordham offerings. I would grab this again.
