A little resiny and hoppy. Great toasty reddish brown color. Bitter but balanced sweetness. Had a bottle at home.

This beer rocks, it's about time. Brooklyn finally came out with an awesome IPA. Great job. 4-1/2 Stars. (Popped a top)

The official beer of NY Comic Con. Pours a very clear copper in color with a frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Leaves layers of lacing down the sides of the glass. Has a great fresh hop aroma of citrus like grapefruit. Some other tropical notes in there too. Mouthfeel is light to light medium in body very smooth crisp and clean. Slight sweet maltiness at the forward balanced out by clean mix of flavorful, pungent hoppiness. Similar to the aroma flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, and a nice bitter hoppiness shine through to the finish. Very smooth easy drinking incredibly enjoyable, could have a few in a session and would definitely have again! The supervilliany of blandness and big beer have been vanquished!
