Hop Hazard by River Horse Brewing Company

From Philly we find ourselves just slightly north back in to the old Garden State, New Jersey.  Lambertville is the town and River Horse Brewing Company provides us with beer #344, Hop Hazard.  This is an American Pale Ale with an ABV of 6.5%.

I actually have a River Horse glass for the pour and into that glass went a dark, murky amber colored brew with just a small off-white head.  The nose was a decent mix of caramel malts and a hoppy pine scent and an aroma very similar to tea…odd.  It tasted just like it smelled with the addition of a bit of white grapefruit both in flavor and bitterness.  I thought the hops were a bit more noticeable in the flavor…the pine in particular…than the malts.  The carbonation was average in this medium bodied brew.  It was a fairly smooth beer that I finished really quick.

This was a solid beer from River Horse and one more beer for me in the long line towards 365.
