bottle. Light amber with small head. Fairly by the book IPA with some subtle english flavor. Oddly enough, it’ s brewed in Syracuse, NY.

Bottle shared by Dave. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma has sweet malt, caramel, some fruit character,and a hint of hops. The flavor is more malt forward, caramel, mild fruits, toasted, grassy and a touch of earth. This was just ok.

This beer seems confused, not sure if it wants to be a mild, watery British IPA or the full blown hop-assault of an AIPA. As it is, the hops are tantalizing, but ineffectual in the end. Surprisingly high alc. for such a mild beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate grass hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This is a good beer.

12oz bottle, shared by Dave. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Kind of a flat english malt flavor. Caramel malts, little grassy hop. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of crisp texture. More dry in the finish. Light bitter taste. Alright IPA, better than expected

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells sweet and hoppy. Tastes like it smells, but blander, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Enjoyable beer to drink. I shouldn’t have had allowed myself to get overly excited about this when I saw it. It’s basically what you’d expect from a macro brewery. Goes down smoothly and doesn’t offer much in terms of hops or bite that you’d expect from an IPA.
