Crests at about a finger plus of bright white, evaporates easily to a surface coating, surprising then how the lacing sticks in broad sheets which virtually cover any space it meets. Bright amber hued liquid with no diminishment at the rims, consistent stream of larger bubbles fill the glass. Spicy, biscuity nose with pepper, malted milk balls and spiced orange peel, the apricot, peach, mango fruit more consistent than seeking attention, pairs well with the maltiness balance out any inclination towards herbaceousness. Full-bodied, smooth with pleasing carbonated tingle. Here too leads with orange, lemon citrus tones leading into malt, milk chocolate and coffee candy flavors. The breadiness comes to the fore as it warms and at the same time the apricot, peach, nectarine, pineapple fruit concentrates. The grassy nuances play around the periphery and there’s little bitter about it. Nice active presence on the palate.

I had this on draught at the brewery. 16 oz. pour served in a pint glass. I pours a clear, golden-amber color with a thin, milk-white head and lacing that lasted through the pour. The nose was subdued and featured primarily lemon peel, grapefruit, pine needles, and floral hops. There is a fairly sweet malt base with a touch of caramel that is quickly overwhelmed by bitter, biting Citra and Centennial hops. There are also subtle but pleasing lemon and grapefruit notes. The flavors are nicely balanced. For a single IPA, the feel is creamy - almost chewy - with lively carbonation, and it drinks easily at 6/8% ABV. Overall, I was impressed. This is a first rate American IPA that holds its own with anything brewed in far southern New Jersey (which I define as not including Monmouth County). It's nicely balanced, tasty, and fun to drink.
