Sight: Clear golden/copper/amber color.  Not much of a head, just a dusting of bubbles.  Nice lacing, though.

Smell: Metallic, fruity hops (like apricot).  A very, very mild pine.

Flavor: The apricot fruitiness is at the forefront, and the hop aftertaste lingers in the back of the throat.

Feel: Medium mouthfeel, almost syrupy, but still crisp.  Moderate-to-high carbonation.

Concluding Remark: NJ brewery Flying Fish uses three hop varieties (Nugget, Ahtahnum, and Columbus) and a combination of American, English, and German malts to create its HopFish IPA.  The result is a refreshing brew with definite drinkability; it’s balanced, not too bitter, and what you’d expect from an IPA.  A good summer beer.
