3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shaker pint draft at the brew pub in Patchogue, New York. The pour is a hazed cloudy orange golden, with not much of an off white head. The aroma is initially faint, though picks up some floral, biscuit and sweet maltiness as it warms a bit. The taste is the nose, floral along with sweet biscuit malt. There is a bit of daicetyl in the finish that didnít detract too much. Palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation. Nice enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap 4 oz. sample at BrickHouse Brewery & Restaurant in Patchogue, NY.
Hazy copper with creamy off-white head and good lacing.
Mild aroma of pine and tangerine.
Taste of pine, pepper and light citrus with a spicy pepper finish.
Medium body and medium/low carbonation.
A decent IPA, but the hot pepper seems unnecessary. While it did not improve the flavor, at least it did not overwhelm it.

Growler filled at the brewpub and consumed the next day. Pours a lightly hazed orange gold with a large linen white head that lasted until the last sip and left considerable lacing. Pleasant citrus aroma along with some floral notes. The flavor is malt with a touch of mild toast followed some moderate hops bitterness. The hops are citrusy with a little floral character as well. Medium bodied. This drinks dangerously easy for a 7% abv. A not-over-the-top IPA that I found to be very enjoyable. My favorite beer to date from this brewer.
