Bottle: Craft beer in Midtown NY is harder to find that you might imagine, Blue Point as a better than avg presence and is a good local option. Food Pairing: Blue Cheese salad.

It had a deep golden color with good clarity and a nice average size head on top. The head had a nice creamy off white color and good retention. This made for some cool lacing as the slow fading cap made its way down the glass. There was a wonderful bright fruity hop character with solid notes of citrusy grapefruit rind with some leafy/spicy hops over milder sweet malt. Its firm medium body has solid hop bitterness and hop flavor notes mildly balanced buy sweet almost fruity maltiness. Mostly I get citrusy grapefruit like hops with a hint of apricot and pine as well as light white bready sweetness. Towards the finish there is a bit of raw grain from the malt with still brings some sweetness but hop bitterness holds on the tongue deeper into the slow lingering finish. Its carbonation keeps the texture lively but still smooth and pleasing.

Had on draft. Nice color, good imiti all taste, good aftertaste, a good IPA that has a bit of a malt taste. Not too bitter like some IPAs but enough that you know it's an IPA without having to reach for a water as some are too dry ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Denne kom rett etter Baladin Open Riserva hos Odd Gunnar denne fine junikvleden, så det ble nok litt urettferdig. Lys&klar og med fin munnfylde, men humlebruken er forsiktigere enn antatt - eller er det en illusjon? Friskt pøseøl i det høyere %-segmentet.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Amber colored with coarse carbonation. Crystal clear with nice highlights. A rather thin head lasts longer than expected. Aroma is very promising, with clear notes of caramel malt, spicy hops, and citrus (hops). Thankfully, the taste largely follows this aroma, although the flavor from the hops is more resiny and pink grapefruit and less orange. There’s plenty of sweet malt here too, and the end result seems very much in line with the IBU=60 claimed by the brewer. Lingering hoppy aftertaste with some subtle malt hanging in there too. O - another well crafted IPA with ample hop flavor and aroma and a moderate hop hit, yet not too challenging to quaff. {Bottle from 8/2011 notes)

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 355 ml bottle at local tasting. Golden colour, low white head. Sweetish aroma of stale orange marmalade and dust. Medium hopped flavour, on a medium sweet background of orange marmalade. Not bad, but a "thirteen in a douzen" IPA.

Xenon (78) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 On tap. Had some interesting blends of hops but otherwise was a bit low on the Taste front. I like whatever hops they used very critusy but a ton on the floral or piney side. Malt character is hard to find but some nuttiness can be found. Decent but not good

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Kihoskh, Köpenhamn (34:-). Fruktig och humlig, maltig med karamelltoner, grapefrukt, ganska söt, medelbesk och medelfyllig. Avslutningen är torr, besk och humlig.
