On tap at Poor Henry’s, crystalline dry-hopped medium body lets juicy grapefruit-orange-pineapple-mango tang and zesty lemon perk receive cotton-candied caramel malting. Dank floral illusions, light juniper bittering and recessive vodka snips gain assertion alongside resinous pine-needled pungency at the briskly clean citrus-bound finish.
On tap at Ambulance, briskly sharp amber-hazed New England-styled IPA bridles mango puree with tropical Citra-Mosaic hop fruiting. Tangy lemon-juiced mango tartness turns mildly sour as hasty orange-peeled grapefruit bittering thrusts forth alongside less enthusiastic crayon-like waxing. Needs deeper mango penetration for better assertion.
On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, perfumed citrus spicing gains generous floral dollop over dewy Scotch-licked pale malting in dry piney setting. Zestfully fruited Mosaic hop tropicalia stays briskly clean.

On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Haledon, soft-toned summertime refresher brings misty lemon ‘n lime juicing to the fore of citric-spritzed light body with unexpected (and well hidden) 9.3% alcohol whir. Mild vodka briskness spikes grapefruit, orange and berry subtleties underlying spritzy grassy-hopped lemon liming.
On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, awesome coconut cream pie-styled Double IPA (in collaboration with fellow Jersey brewers’ Icarus) perfect as sweet-toothed dessert.

On tap at Growler & Gill, enigmatic pinkish amber-hazed Imperial IPA ‘glops’ raspberry cobbler tartness, oaken cherry souring, redcurrant jam and hibiscus pleasantry upon salted citrus stead. Mild whipped cream vanilla sweetness contrasts lactic yogurt souring hunkering down at the gentle spelt oats spine.
On tap at Morris Tap & Grill, clear amber-browned Imperial IPA richer, darker and chewier than typical piney citric East Coast varietal. Glazed mango, grapefruit and pineapple tang sweetened by honey-spiced pale malting, leaving earthen pine hop bittering in the dust.
