Not a fan of this brewer, though as a NJ guy I want to be. Carton & Kane rule NJ.
This beer tried several times and upgraded, may be River Horse's best.

A: Cloudy almost muddy, brown amber in color with a modest 1 finger head that falls fast but leaves a spotty, again almost a mud spray lace.

Smell: Caramel and bread are topped by resiny, grassy hops. A bit of that Saranac stink.

Taste: Follows smell, almost a sticky bun kind of beer, bready caramel with grass, grapefruit, cinammon, and a lot of long bitterness. Alcohol is not so noticeable as the bitter, peppery finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, sticky late. A peppery taste as the bitterness and citrus ride the tongue for a while, but too sticky/muddy for my mouth.

Drinkability: I like it tho it's muddled, it's a big flavored beer, a slow sipper.
