UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 Bottle. To me IPAs are all about aromas, and this beer has it in spades. A perfect balance of moderate smells of hops and malt. Notes of caramel, cookie and grapefruit immediately stood out. Hints of pine, dough and maybe a little cherry follow. Head is frothy with excellent lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is a clear orange/red. Taste starts out lightly acidic and is lightly bitter in the long finish. Palate is medium light, oily with soft cabonation. I canít wait to visit this brewery next time Iím in LI.

Quite pale, strong fluffy head. One dimensional hopping, characteristic cascade hops are nice at first, but become a little overwhelming as things progress.

Dorwart (2491) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Thin head with decent carbonation. Lots of light and fluffy floaters in there. Big hoppy aroma with lots of resinous hops and pine. Some caramel malts also. Color is a fuzzy bright orange. Sweet and malty up front then the hops slap you in the face mid swallow. Big dry roasted peanut skin bitterness. I think that this is balanced very well. Dry with a little roastyness but predominantly big and hoppy. Little alcohol presece. Lingering bitterness and hoppy dryness. I like this brew a lot.

Capa (2556) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Pours gold with a little red. has a Small fizzy white head. Citrus and grassy hops are present, but not as strong as in most IPAs. Floral and fruity sweetness are also there, as well as some malt. Nice, but could use a stronger aroma. Medium, creamy body. Has a very good flavor, but again, not like an IPA. Sweet fruit, citrus, and floral hops are the most noticeable. A touch of grass comes through in the light bitter finish. I donít see the india part of this pale ale. Pretty decent, though.

Arayaga2 (2049) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 This was not what I was expecting. The hops were there, bit not present in the way the name would suggest. Mildly aromatic, mild tasting tourist IPA, not that there is anything wrong with that. $1.50/12oz

Nice aroma, good head that lasted throughout. Nothing special here just a good solid IPA. Good Citrus hop flavor.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Firkin: Aroma of floral hops and black pepper. Poured a cloudy copper/amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Small lacing. Flavor of hops! Unbalanced toward hops. Notes of grapefruit, resin, and sneakers. Bitter finish. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation.

Decent attempt at an IPA. Nothing exciting about it though. Crisp, hoppy, and bitter. Wouldnít go out of my way for it.
