3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at at least four different places in the Tarrytown/Westchester area 12/27-12/29/14
Light golden colored IPA with a generally medium-sized head with good retention and a bit of haziness.
Nose is not of the top-tier, incredibly fresh/lush/dank/whatever IPAs but it’s respectable enough with a bit of honey and lightly grainy malts creeping in as well. Alcohol is well concealed in both aroma and flavor.
This was the only decent beer at the wedding I was at one evening and while I wasn’t thrilled, I certainly wasn’t unhappy to drink it most of the night. The best part of the beer was the texture and attenuation, being not absurdly dry, but certainly crisp and drinkable. Pine, wintergreen, dry citrus (lemons, oranges, mainly) and a bit of leafy, green, juicy hop notes as well. Light on the malt notes, but with enough body to balance. Perhaps just a touch too bitter for my tastes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour with a soapy white head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma is great and of tropical fruits, piney, lightly herbal and apricots ... Definitely has some rindy qualities as well .... Taste is of rindy citrus fruits, piney and lightly herbal hops, has some caramel malt on the backbone .... Finish is dry and malty with a bit of a bitter dry hopped bite .... If the taste matched up to the aroma this would be a notch or two higher

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Hazy deep golden with fine floating bits and a fair white head. Onion and garlic, peppery resin, a touch of tang, citrus, minimal grainy malt. Medium body and carbonation. Still has some onion, tropical fruits, citrus, light to moderate malt presence; dry with decent bitterness and a fruity, resinous finish. I’ve heard of hop varieties that give off onion and garlic and note I know what that means!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une pinte en fût à Manhattan, dans un pub irlandais. Une belle dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le liquide est translucide. Un nez de houblon frais avec un malt blond. Une bouche avec une belle amertume, facile avec des notes d’herbes et de malt blond. Plus amère que la Goose Island bue côte à côte malgré qu’elles soient passablement similaire.
