Val is not a sports fan. I’ve referenced before that Val refers to all sports (except hockey) as “sportsball.” Hockey, she refers to as “sportspuck.” I’ve tried over the years to get her more into sports, but it just hasn’t worked. She is really good about letting me watch sports, though. When I saw this beer, I knew that I had to try it. Sometimes, I’m really just a sucker for marketing.
Style: American Pale Ale
Trivia: The brewery is located in Hackensack, New Jersey.
Random: I used to do hospital transports to Hackensack when I was an EMT. I haven’t been back to the area in well over 10 years.
The beer poured with a one and a half finger white head. It dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and a dark yellow/light orange in color. Despite the haziness, I could still see a great deal of carbonation. The nose had a bit of hops to it, that mostly manifested as grass with a bit of grapefruit. The taste was much of the same. I could pick up a decent amount of lightly sweet malt that was quickly overtaken by the grapefruit and the grass. The body was light and no alcohol was noticeable. It had a lot of carbonation, which made the beer really refreshing. The finish was quick with citrus. I enjoyed this beer. It would be perfect for watching a day baseball game. I will definitely be having this again.
