Aroma is the best part of this beer. However, that's not to take away from the other redeeming qualities. It's a good overall IPA.
Pours a dark amber/red. Earthy, full bodied.

A reddish copper amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with nutty notes, and grassy resinous hops, nice. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with light roasted notes and resinous hops, decent. On tap at Rattle N Hum.

Draught. cloudy amber with soapy head. Aromas of caramel, pine, fruity yeast. Additional Flavors of earth, light grapefruit, yeast. Plenty bitter but balanced. Body is very full and fresh. Lovely basic beer. Prefect flagship. Great use of hops.

16 oz pour Press 195 - local, fresh beer that looks like an amber but has all the qualities of a IPA. Dry, earthy hops are rounded out by a semi- sweet malt backbone. But the predominant feature of this beer is the hop profile. Nice local brew from long island. The hops linger on your tongue to the point that you could almost chew them. Very nice.

Cheers to JoeMcPhee for sharing the bottle. Mahogany colour with a frothy head. High carbonation. Toffee, caramel, fruit aroma. Thin texture. Great flavour, toffee, hop , fruit and tangy citrus aftertaste.

Deep amber pour with a tight pale tan head. The aroma has a lot of bright grapefruit citrusy hops and a little bit of deeper sweet malt character. Some light iced tea aroma along with a touch of light fruit as well. There is a hint of richness and a fairly pronounced bitterness as well. A sort of earthy bitterness along with a nice rich character. There is a bit of caramel but it’s not overly sweet. Has a touch of soft toast as well.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a hazy dark orange with a thick light tan head. Aroma of hop oils, grassy hops, citrus, caramel malt. Flavor is a nice balance between the hops and malt, leaning towards the hops in this case (although certainly not as hoppy/more malty than the IPA). Tasty stuff!
